Fact: Clive Owen’s face is a thing of craggy beauty. That weathered face, the chiseled jaw, those soulful eyes, combine into an object worthy of being nominated for an Oscar separately from the man himself. Not that Mr. Owen isn’t a great actor, because clearly he is, it’s just that his face does some of the work for him. You know when that face walks on screen that his character will be a real man’s man. A tough guy with a battered soul and bruised heart. He is a man who has seen it all and survived. A man beaten down by time, but unwilling to give in. He says it all with his face. So we ranked his film roles in order of facial cragginess. Be sure to tune in to “Derailed” tonight at 5:45 p.m. ET and just stare into that perfect, weathered, craggy face and try not to feel deep things.
