Prior to their acting careers, these famous strong men made good use of their towering height and imposing body by working as bouncers.

Which one (had you met him at that time) would have intimidated you the most?

There is a difference between a bouncer and a bodyguard.

The sheer height and muscularity coupled with the killer attitude from Rocky 4 makes Dolph Lundgren my pick.

Terry Crews would have to protect himself from me...homina homina homina...

Pre-order? Huh?

FYC:
Not exactly an actor (though you may think so if you're an atheist) but Pope Frances was one back in Argentina. :D
Javier Bardem
David Bautista
Theo Rossi
Adam Copeland
Patrick Gallagher
Peter DeLuise
Diamond Dallas Page
Forest Whitaker (he was even stabbed working a door)
Jesse James
Jean-Claude Van Damme
Danny Aiello

Thanks.

According to my various sources, these guys were bouncers, I didn't want to extend to bodyguards and wrestlers because the list would have exceeded 35. Now, but if there's one or many entries that shouldn't be there, please, tell me which one(s) and I'll check them again.

Pre-order is one of the weapons they use not to let you in, but if the reference is too obscure, I'll change it. Or what can I say instead of this "pre-order" thing,

I think the pre-order thing is more known in the US as a reservation. Or being on the guest list. But you could instead say something like "put on your dancing shoes and..." or "grab a cocktail and..." if you wanted.

These seem to be bodyguards rather than bouncers:
Michael Clarke Duncan
Mr. T
Terry Crews
Chuck Vito
Jesse Ventura

My other suggestions seem correct.
