March is named for the bearded, virile Roman god of war, Mars. It's also a month when we start to transition from Winter to Spring. Plants start to grow, animals start making babies, And too many guys start shaving their faces. Here are 8 guys born in the first 8 days of March who heeded the call of Mars and (mostly) kept their facial hair.

The former biker turned stuntman and actor with the unusual take on a fu manchu.
