At 41, Isaac is the youngest silver fox on our list and it's only been in the last year that we've seen him shake his spotted chin.

For time thrillersanother violent yearHe sported an immaculate pencil mustache. In an acclaimed sci-fi dramaex machina, it was a shaved head and a bushy thick beard.

Honorable Mention: Keanu Reeves
Keanu Reeves, 55, is one of those actors who strangely doesn't age and still shines as much as an action hero and a romantic lead, so we're thrilled to see him proudly sporting his gray beard in recent years. Reeves is no stranger to beards, particularly the spotted look with long hair covering his cheeks, chin and mustache. However, as time went on and the jet-black beard started to show a little gray, his chin only got better. Sure, Keanu still stands out in the silver look, the natural darkness of his beard still going strong, but the gray highlights we've seen give him, shall we say, a ravishing look that will only get better with time. Even the Wyldest of Stallyns gets better with age, and we're glad Keanu has maintained that look for so long.
