Glory was starstruck at a young age and fell in love with classic Hollywood movies and movie stars and loves writing about both! It wasn't long until Hollywood took notice of this popular literary character and decided that he should become a movie character too. The silent film Tarzan of the Apes starred Elmo Lincoln in the title role. It was a hit and Hollywood had a new hero, one that continues to enthrall movie-goers to this day. This guide to the actors who have played Tarzan is as complete as I could put together. If you know of any omissions, let me know in the comments section.

Mike Henry in 'Tarzan'. Magnificent.
After meeting for the first time, Wes and Leah notice an instant chemistry. The women told us no. Then the men told us no. Everyone says that they do not hook up while naked in the jungle.
Lincoln was the very first actor to take on the feral character, who was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs and first appeared in the writer's publication Tarzan of the Apes. The jungle man made his screen debut in the silent film of the same name. The actor, who was also an award-winning gymnast and a police officer, went on to lead the cast of 's Tarzan the Tiger. Like Frank Merrill, Weissmuller had an athletic background that helped him prepare to play the brawny character.
