10 Gorilla Guys

10 Gorilla Guys: Hollywood loves gorillas. They are mysterious and scary, yet close enough to human for an actor to play one. Many actors and special effects pros have portrayed gorillas at one time or another in movies such as Gorillas in the Mist or the Planet of the Apes series, but some became particularly known for being "the guy in the gorilla suit." At first, the only requirement for a star gorilla was that one own a gorilla suit. As the competition heated up, these guys had to bring something special to their roles.

ROBOT MONSTER! A classic. You just don't see many gorillas with deep-sea diving helmets on their heads.

You have to wonder what planet he came from.

To me, Ray "Crash" Corrigan will always be the definitive Gorilla. Veritably, the Laurence Olivier of primate thespians.
