Good poster. - ddangerous Nice looking pup.  Have anyother Pepsi - ABOSWORTH 
Smile Actors Who Were Good Boxers - And Vice Versa.

Off the top of my head I can think of....

Liam Neeson - who was Northern Irish Amateur Champion.
Ray Winstone - won 80 out of 88 amateur bouts. London schools Champion.
Bob Hope - He fought as an amateur but faced Jack Dempsey, Rocky Marciano & Ray Robinson as a pro - an unmatched achievement
Tony Danza - Actually a proper pro who won all 9 fights by KO!!!
Victor McLaglen - Famous for his fight scene with John Wayne but this was a rugged man who fought exhibitions with Jack Johnson (best Heavyweight IMO).
Anthony Quinn - The Mexican-Irishman famous for being a Bubble boxed to earn money as an up & comer in LA.

On the flip side...
Rocky Graziano - Became an actor after retirement.
Terry Downes - Bit part actor.
Marvin Halger - Famous in Italy, apparently.

Who did I miss?

Carlos Palomino had a career as an actor I believe.

Manny Pacquiao ?

Mickey Rourke fought amateur and had a short pro career
Amateur he was 13-0
Pro 6-0

Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Why even bother, mate? You're embarrassing yourself with childish answers like this.
