For the past few years, I have been struck by the large number of left-handed actors appearing in the movies. I usually notice their preference when they use a firearm or sign a document. I would like to solicit the responses of members to add to a list. The left-handed actor should be one with a credited appearance (i.e., not an extra).

I’ll start with: Bruce Willis.

The reason being that the HW types are not fully evolved humans!

I will add Christian Schlater to the list.

Wow. That's a start. I noticed that Mr. Cruise shot right-handed in "Collateral."

Not a HW type, but I am left handed.

You sayin' I'm not fully EVOLVED?

We lefties are the only ones in our right minds.

Maybe there are so many left handed actors because there are so many actors who smoke left handed cigarrettes.
