David is the best actor I love then you played doctor in NCIS. - Ncis Fan

AurienMay 4, 2009

Who created the snapshot? Anyone who`s watched Man From UNCLE knows that David has VERY blue eyes and VERY blonde hair (now darker, unfortunately).

Kelley KMar 20, 2009

I agree with you girls -- definitely HOT. And age be damned! All men should look (and speak) that good at his age.

oilybbMay 3, 2008

Maybe cool, but definitely HOT! I don`t care how old he is, I`d go out with him in a heartbeat if I had the chance. Does anybody know if he`s involved with, or married to, anyone right now?

Kay LanningOct 31, 2007

David McCallum is a bloody legend!!!! I love him and he is just sooooooooo cool

leolaAug 20, 2007
