John Wayne is the coolest of the two. But what I've been wondering, is how Bruce Lee slipped into a forum about tough guys? He was a skinny little guy with a high pitched voice. Both John Wayne and Chuck Norris engaged in unarmed fights, shootouts, knives, bombs, air craft fights, on horseback in vehicles, you name it, they did it....and every inch of the way was awesome! Bruce Lee jumped around and screamed, made faces and well...ok he was Jim Carry of Asia. ...im going to get so much flak for this ^^'
John Wayne. There is none tougher than The Duke. I give Chuck his propts, and I agree that it may well be that Chuck, out of sheer respect, would not outdo The Duke, The Duke was and is the most awesome, and had some of the best lines.
