Dan Blocker did wear one but not during the early years of "Bonanza."

Jack Klugman's toupee he wore when he was on "Quincy" looked like it came from the butt of a dead sheep.

If its a nicely made rug that compliments the person then go for it. And if it makes the person feel better abt their appearance then so much the better.

My own opinion: I think baldness can be becoming on many guys. The only exception I can think of is Ron Howard, cause he has such a baby face.

HA! I knew Nicolas Cage was getting some blading out!

And I'll add another celeb who sported the rug and/or the plugs to this list:

Richard Simmons!


In the early to mid '90s, I knew right away he was receeding. And then years later...

POOF! Out comes the plugs and restoration!

I guess if your last name is...SIMMONS you're likely to go bald!

Thanks for this thread! I can't believe I missed it! What hilarious pictures, especially the guy from Ohio! I can't think of any one that hasn't been mentioned that wears a toupee, but some of those that were mentioned really surprised me. As for my opinion on them? Well, as I said, a lot of these people I didn't even realize wore them, so I guess as long as they look realistic, they are okay. Some people look better bald, though. There was one celeb, and I can't for the life of me think of his name, who was losing his hair. He used to wear a toupee, but then he shaved his head and now wears a buzz cut. He looks SO much better now.

I though about something else here:

Topher Grace only wore a wig when he was on That '70s show, only b/c the producers wanted him to have his head shaped up like a typical '70s guy.

I noticed in one dream sequence episode, he had his normal, slightly shorter hair.

And off-camera in real life his hair is nothing like it was when he on That '70s Show.



And what's up with Drew Carey's recent do's as of late?

I finally got to see Conan O'Brian's first Tonight Show episode (I had it TiVo'd) tonight, and I swear that his sidekick, Andy Richter had a toupee. His hair looked awful, as though he were wearing a bad toupee.

I thought that Drew Carey wore one as well, but I think he's let his hair grow longer since being on Price is Right. It looked better shorter. At first I thought that he had a toupee too, but then I remembered his famous buzz cut.

Speaking of That 70's Show and Drew Carey...

Debra Jo Rupp and Kathy Kinney both wore wigs as Kitty and Mimi...respectfully.

I got a new one, folks:

What about:

Dick Van Patten?

He began wearing an obvious piece during the final 2 seasons of "Eight is Enough."

During the bulk of EiE's run, he had a sparse frontal hairline with thinning hairs and a huge bald spot in the back of his head. In later eps. (paticularly those from the final few seasons), he had a blond hairpiece that covered the back of his bald head and didn't match the bottom of the sides of his head.

Check out the pic on the right.

Kind of funny how his toupee matches his eyebrows more than his own real hair!
Looks like a combover. I heard him once say he stays away from helicopters.

She said on VH1's I love the '70s that she didn't know he wore a rug. How is that possible? Even Stevie Wonder could tell.

And I also cracked up laughing at Muhammad Ali's banter with Howard and his rugs during those interviews I saw of him on ESPN Classic.
