->''Like [=Steve McQueen=]\\
All I need's a fast machine\\
And I'm gonna make it all right''
-->-- '''Music/SherylCrow''', "Steve [=McQueen=]"

''The King of Cool.''

[=Steve McQueen=] (March 24, 1930 November 7, 1980) was a American movie actor born and star of ''TheMagnificentSeven'', ''Film/TheGreatEscape'', ''TheThomasCrownAffair'', ''Film/{{Bullitt}}'', ''{{Papillon}}'', ''Film/TheToweringInferno'', and ''LeMans''. Early film work included a supporting role in the PaulNewman film ''SomebodyUpThereLikesMe'' about boxer Rocky" Marciano. He also starred in the horror movie ''Film/TheBlob''. His "anti-hero" persona, which he developed at the height of the Vietnam counterculture, made him one of the top box-office draws of the 1960s and 1970s. [=McQueen=] received an AcademyAward nomination for his role in ''TheSandPebbles''. 1974, he became the highest-paid movie star in the world. Although [=McQueen=] was combative with directors and producers, his popularity put him in high demand and enabled him to command large salaries.

Began a RomanceOnTheSet with [=Ali McGraw=], his co-star in ''Film/TheGetaway'', causing her to divorce her husband, legendary Creator/{{Paramount}} studio head Robert Evans.

He died of cancer in 1980 shortly after the release of his final film ''TheHunter''. His son Chad played one of the "Kobra Kais" in ''TheKarateKid'' (1984) and his grandson, [=Steven R. McQueen=], is a regular on the series ''TheVampireDiaries''.

Not to be confused with the British artist/film director of ''{{Hunger}}'', ''Film/{{Shame}}'', and ''Film/TwelveYearsASlave.'' An easy mistake to make.

A friend and student of BruceLee, he was one of his pallbearers after his untimely death.

His IMDB article (only three digits!) can be found [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000537/ here]].
