He should win this poll hands down.
I could be wrong! LOL
If he doesn't win, It might be a good day to die!

Tony Goldwyn as Neil Armstrong in From the Earth to the Moon (1998)

This could be third option and likely the most iconic TV portrayal if you wanted to go that way.

Only made this for the current, in theaters now because of its relevance.

It's more than enough for me, that at least two men who knew Neil Armstrong very well during the Apollo program (Buzz Aldrin and Chuck Yeager) both say that this movie portrayed Armstrong in an inaccurate manner.

Yeager's comments were, "That's not the Neil Armstrong that I knew!"

Ultimately, the movie portrayed Armstrong as cold, aloof, and uncaring about his family.  This is not the case.  In fact, the cold portrayal has been the most frequent theme in movie reviews.

If the film is one tenth what The Right Stuff is, I'll be satisfied.
I'd say Armstrong any time... not that I know much about him apart from what everyone knows, seems like Buzz Aldrin was a more "interesting" character, as a real-life person I mean... I don't know really...

I believe it's one of the finest movies of the '80s.  Can't pick a favorite scene, too many to choose...

Hi Cliff, could you put 'First Man' in single quote marks in the title and intro? IMDb prefers that movie titles are in single quote marls '  ' and TV series are in " " double quote marks. Thank you!

Dan, I revamped and cleaned up the title and description.
It was really "BAD".

I did that back when I was new.
And this one for the weird file.
Just sat down in front of the TV and Tony Goldwin just popped on the screen!

Just an idea, but for the real Neil Armstrong you could use an image from one of the recent documentaries so the poll ties into another movie.
