    Well, let's get the ball rolling with an obvious choice.

    Oh, like you have no idea who that is behind the helmet, doing a full indy flip off a dirt ramp on a motorbike.Who ELSE is just that damn good at that?....Oh fine then, he's this guy.

    Goddamn Travis Pastrana.
    X-games, Nitro Circus, Red Bull, Manly, manly,manly. Half a million videos on Youtube have this guy as it's lead character, an adrenaline charged, completely insane, massively talented dude from Annapolis, Maryland. He's backflipped bikes over flying helicopters, he's jumped over anything that calls itself a gap, or anything else that dares move in front of him, and he still goes for more. Not only that, but on Nitro Circus he does some of the craziest stuff off his bike. His backyard is a tribute to cool, his mates are all awesome, and his charisma practically oozes out his ears despite repeatedly hurting himself in his more insane stunts.
    Oh and because everyone loves a good picture in these, here's an explanation why he's awesome.

    He jumped a plane IN MID FLIGHT.

    I've set the bar, he jumped over it. Your nominations please.

    Oooo, I likes this format, as movie making is part of the industry that I work for. Sweet. So, my submission for manliest stuntman is:

    John Stewart.

    Wait, the guy from the Daily Show? No, don't be a fucking idiot. That John Stewart is funny, but not a manly man. THIS John Stewart has been doing stunts and movies for decades. He started off when he was very young, being inspired by John Motherfucking Wayne. After a stint in the Marine Corps (yet another manly notch on his belt) he came home to start a career in doing stunt work. This began by setting himself on fire and throwing himself through a window FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN TO SHOW IT COULD BE DONE.

    Over the course of his career, he broke his back twice, his neck once, and almost every other bone at some point or another. In one incident his leg was wrapped around his head. Think about that for a second...his LEG...wrapped around his HEAD...and he kept going. Fuck yeah.

    Here is a short list of the 143 movies, TV shows, and rock videos he's been involved with:

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Dukes of Hazzard
    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
    Phantasm I and II
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie)
    Air Wolf
    Cagney and Lacey
    And music videos for The Police, Pink Floyd, Judas Priest, and Ronnie James Dio.

    His main stunt has always been fire. He developed many of the current techniques used to allow filming someone on fire (getting rid of the bulky fire suits and creating via his own imagination a skin-tight suit that allowed protection up to temperatures of 850 degrees) however, he also was involved in car crashes, car chases, building rappels, gun fights, and building/cliff jumps. And in one famous incident, he was brought in by the LAPD to show that "even a stuntman can't drive drunk." He then went on to drive the course perfectly, in reverse, 4 seconds faster than the old record, with a BAL of .19.

    So there you go, a manly motherfucker in all respects. Here he is jumping a motorcycle off a bridge while exploding:

    The guy is well know for founding Parkour.
    He's acted in several movies and been a film stuntman, but is best known for the aforementioned sport.

    He is fit, manly, ex-army, and has some wicked ink.
    He also just happens to be batshit crazy.
