Dolph Lundgren, Olympian

... and that role led him to the real Olympics. He headed up the US Olympic team for the Modern Pentathlon in 1996. The idea was his star power would bring fans to the sport. The reality? The movie Pentathlon flopped, and you probably can't even name what sports are IN the competition. (Give up? Pistol shooting, fencing, show jumping, cross-country running and swimming.)
