The Top 15 Most Badass Celebrities



Rod Serling

Few people have had more influence over television than The Twilight Zone creator and host Rod Serling. Widely known as the "angry young man" of Hollywood, Serling was passionate about television's potential to engage a huge audience of smart, socially conscious people in important discussions. He was famous for irreverent, lively clashes with networks and advertisers, and for eloquently aggressive interviews like this. Before he became famous as the guardian angel of quality TV, he jumped out of planes professionally, and became a scrappy boxer known for his "berserk" moves. Do yourself a favor and watch some Twilight Zone episodes on Netflix Instant if you've never seen the show. And be sure you are in the right mood to HAVE YOUR MIND EXPLODE.
