Terrence Stephen McQueen (March 24, 1930 November 7, 1980), nicknamed the "King of Cool", was an American actor. His antihero persona, emphasized during the height of the counterculture of the 1960s, made him a top box-office draw during the 1960s and 1970s. McQueen received an Academy Award nomination for his role in The Sand Pebbles. His other popular films include The Cincinnati Kid, Love With the Proper Stranger, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, The Getaway, and Papillon, as well as the all-star ensemble films The Magnificent Seven, The Great Escape, and The Towering Inferno.

In 1974, he became the highest-paid movie star in the world, although he did not act in films again for four years. McQueen was combative with directors and producers, but his popularity placed him in high demand and enabled him to command the largest salaries.

McQueen allegedly faked an accident to get out of his 'Wanted...' television contract.Not questioning his talent, etc.; just his integrity. Rubs me the wrong way. Adults fulfill their agreements. Especially written ones.Sunday, November 08, 02:56:02pm
