"The Caveman's Valentine" (2001) The look: Modern-day troglodyte with a thick beard and knotty dreadlocks. The back story: As a homeless man prone to delusional fantasies who lives in a cave in Central Park, personal hygiene isn't high on Jackson's character Romulus Ledbetter's list of priorities. "There were homeless guys that I had seen in New York that I based it on: a wild kind of Rasta who lives in a cave," Jackson explained. "He grows this hair as a source of heat and as a mask that he can hide under and behind. It also made him very lionesque."
