Actors who Portrayed Marines
Did a Google search for actors who played Marines, and found the below site. But I'm puzzled by it. Maybe I'm wrong, but Charlie Sheen was in the Army in "Platoon". And John Wayne wasn't a Marine in real life. Just a couple of blaringly wrong "facts" I found on this site, and a prime example of how you have to take facts researched on the internet with a grain of salt.

Of the 7 listed only 3 were actually in the Marines.

Looks like a pretty incomplete list. No Drew Carey for the real Marine section. Or Jack Nickolson, Kevin Bacon (Twice - and in my opinion plays a fantastic Marine) or Tyrese Gibson.

This list is Bogus.

Yeah, that's why I posted it. I thought about how many actually take this sh!t serious, and factual. Wife and I are huge John Wayne fans and were appalled, and believe he would be also, to have being listed as a Real Marine. He portrayed Marines with pride, and had a deep respect for them, but I don't believe he would ever have posed as one. Or tolerated a site like that one.

Kevin Bacon did an outstanding job in "Taking Chance" If you haven't seen it, make a point of watching it. It was one of my favorite roles for him.

As other's have said; the list is bogus! No credence!
