Short Bio: Known as the King of Cool, McQueen enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and became a tank driver. Showing his rebellious streak, he ended up in the brig for extending a weekend pass into a two-week holiday. McQueen was far from the model soldier. “I was busted back down to private about seven times. The only way I could have been made corporal was if all the other privates in the Marines dropped dead,” he said, according to Marshall Terrill’s Steve McQueen: Portrait of an American Rebel.
