Leading man

Leading man or leading gentleman is an informal term for the actor who is the protagonist or plays a love interest to the leading actress in a film or play. A leading man is sometimes an all rounder; capable of singing, dancing, and acting at a professional level.

A leading man can also be an actor who is often seen in romantic roles. An example of this would be Denzel Washington, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, and Christian Bale.
