Gene Hackman is one of those actors that has almost always maintained a slightly haggard, middle-aged appearance throughout his career.
Unlike his peers - Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Clint Eastwood et al - Hackman always looked like the world had worn him down and made him tougher, more gritted and more angry.
Hackman's character was a hugely successful politician who's lost touch with the common man and only enters into a mayoral race to stop his house being divided in a divorce settlement.
After his first Oscar nomination, Hackman was eager for work and almost accepted a role on a TV series that would later become The Brady Bunch, however his agent advised against it.
Before long, Hackman was taking home his first Oscar for playing the unhinged, relentless New York detective Popeye Doyle in William Friedkin's starkly realistic crime drama The French Connection.
Two years later, Hackman would star alongside Willem Dafoe in the highly controversial Mississippi Burning, in which Hackman played an FBI agent sent to investigate the disappearance of three men involved in voter registration.
Many people find it odd that his final acting role to date was 2004's Welcome To Mooseport, starring alongside Ray Romano.
