Actors with hair pieces or hair plugs

Ok, there are certain actors who when you see them you just know that there is something not quite right with their hair. Which actors do you seriously think have had hair transplants or have hair pieces?

The ones I can name :

Ed Norton (I just saw him in an interview for the 25th hour and his front hairline is EXTREMELY fake looking

Jeremy Piven-There is no question here, he has a wig.

Ben Affleck- There is something up with his hair. What do you think? I'm not sure about him, it's a little iffy.

Bruce Willis, sometimes hair piece.

Samuel L. Jackson- He's admitted that he wears wigs.

So, who else?

It looks like some sort of dead rodent (maybe a squirrel) is perched up on his head.

You forgot Sean Connery
also, Affleck does apparently wear a hairpiece. According to an article on the imdb a couple months ago, he was at a party play-fighting with someone and it flew off. Of course he was surrounded by friends who promised not to tell anyone.

When Sy Sperling (Hair Club for Men) was on Howard Stern he claimed Al Pacino wore a piece. It's funny how his hair hasn't really changed much in the past thirty years, eh?

So it was Pacino's wig that was blonde from being out in the sun when he bleached it (his wig) white for the role...not Pacino's hair. Wow!

John Travlota looks like he's had hair plugs.
Look around his fron hairline.
It's a good job though.

There's a NY dj that is OBSESSED with the fact that he says Ben Affleck wears a wig. However Kevin Smith was on the show and when asked he stated that it is not a wig. But he also put the disclaimer that if it is then it is the best damn one he has ever seen.

Bruce Willis easily wears one. Look at the Kid (a 1997 disney flick) and look at the Sixth Sense.

Rypro, everyone knows that Bruce is bald.

If Affleck does wear a wig, then yes, it is the best damn wig I have ever seen.

I think Mel Gibson has plugs or something, too.

Also, I remember reading an interview with Travolta several years ago where he said his hairline started receding due to stress...

Tony Curtis currently has the worst wig since Steve Allen died.

I was about to start a thread asking this same question... because I watched Signs recently, and it reminded me that all of Mel Gibson's recent movies seem to reveal that he has lost a LOT of hair. I can't tell what he's doing about it. Could be a combination of hair plugs/transplants and a rug.

I heard that Pacino recently lost his hair due to some illness. Right around "Looking for Richard." Before that his hair was his own in film, after that...toup!
