He was the kid who famously kicked Elvis Presley's shin way back in 1963. Later he would portray the "King of Rock and Roll" in one of the 60-plus films he has made since his big screen debut in the Elvis musical 'It Happened at the World's Fair.' In fact, in a career spanning some 50 years, actor Kurt Russell has appeared in some of Hollywood's most popular movies, pictures that include 'Escape from New York' (1981), 'Silkwood' (1983), 'Miracle' (2004), and 'The Hateful Eight' (2015). Russell's cinema longevity is matched only by his 40-year partnership with Goldie Hawn—one of the entertainment world's longest celebrity relationships. Now in his seventies, Kurt Russell is still working in film and television. So, what's your favorite role?
