Sam Jackson

"Unbreakable" (2000) The look: Outsized and asymmetrical Afro. Imagine bed-head shaped like Gumby's skull. The back story: Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan wanted the character Elijah, a reclusive yet obsessive comic book collector with brittle bone disease, to have hair "busting out all over the place," Jackson recalled. "I was thinking along the same lines. I was thinking Frederick Douglass," he said. "It informed my character very well because he's a thinker."Frank Masi / Touchstone Pictures
