Ever wonder how some of the biggest names in sports would look if they got into the Movember spirit? Glad you asked. We've got an all-star lineup, and they're modeling three classic mustache cuts:

The Lumberjack.
The Lounge Singer.
The Villain.


So check out LeBron James, Derek Jeter, Nick Saban, Bill Belichick, Kobe Bryant, Russell Wilson and a cast of dozens. (Like Ric Flair. Wooo!)

Movember Mustaches Athletes

Peyton Manning
 

Peyton Manning

A mustache is perfect way to distract people from looking at the helmet-induced red spot on his forehead.

Peyton Manning
 

Peyton Manning

This look could have made his musical commercials for DirecTV even better.

Peyton Manning
 

Peyton Manning

He did play a bad guy of sorts in his United Way spot on "Saturday Night Live."

LeBron James
 

LeBron James

Fu Manchu for the king? None so far, but LeBron has made surprising decisions in the past.

LeBron James
 

LeBron James

For all the attention his receding hairline receives, maybe James would prefer a little lipular distraction.

LeBron James
 

LeBron James

He didn't need this to cast himself as a villain. But how much better would it have been if he did The Decision with this look?

Derek Jeter
 

Derek Jeter

Somehow he'd still be a hit with the ladies.

Derek Jeter
 

Derek Jeter

Perhaps this would be a nice experiment for his retirement.

Derek Jeter
 

Derek Jeter

Consider this our retirement gift.

Tom Brady
 

Tom Brady

Something tells us Gisele wouldn't go for this.

Tom Brady
 

Tom Brady

Brady wouldn't be the first quarterback to don a bushy stache, but his pretty boy image would certainly take a hit.

Tom Brady
 

Tom Brady

Unless he's angling for 'Most Interesting Man in the World,' though, Brady's probably better off sticking to his round-the-clock 5 o'clock shadow.

Kobe Bryant
 

Kobe Bryant

Maybe the reason this look seems to fit is that it aligns with Kobe's intense personality.

Kobe Bryant
 

Kobe Bryant

Despite the career-long comparisons with MJ, Kobe never went for the mustache like his predecessor.

Kobe Bryant
 

Kobe Bryant

Given Bryant's frustration with his declining game, this old-fashioned approach to facial fashion probably wouldn't serve his interests.

Bob Costas
 

Bob Costas

He still looks like a recent college grad.

Bob Costas
 

Bob Costas

Combine this and with his pink-eye glasses from the Olympics for an even more memorable look.

Bob Costas
 

Bob Costas

A mustache like Sam Elliott, but none of the affinity for guns.

Tony Romo
 

Tony Romo

Tony Romo has taken enough abuse over the years. He doesn't need to do this to himself.

Tony Romo
 

Tony Romo

This might be a look Romo could pull off. Fans in Texas certainly wouldn't argue.

Tony Romo
 

Tony Romo

Maybe this style can be revisited once he wins a playoff game. A stache like that is something you earn.

Mike Krzyzewski
 

Mike Krzyzewski

Horrifying.

Mike Krzyzewski
 

Mike Krzyzewski

Chalk this up as more fodder for the legions of hecklers he faces every season.

Mike Krzyzewski
 

Mike Krzyzewski

Given his West Point pedigree and regimented ways, Coach K just doesn't seem like someone who would go this route.

Tiger Woods
 

Tiger Woods

Did this get girlfriend Lindsey Vonn's approval?

Tiger Woods
 

Tiger Woods

Although it has a nice throwback vibe, Tiger's always been a clean-shaven man.

Tiger Woods
 

Tiger Woods

The time spent waxing the tips would be better used to work on his short game.

Nick Saban
 

Nick Saban

Going outside looking like this would seal Saban's villain status.

Nick Saban
 

Nick Saban

Hey, is that Dave Wannstedt, minus the on-field mediocrity?

Nick Saban
 

Nick Saban

This is kinder than what fans from other SEC schools have done.

Mike Tyson
 

Mike Tyson

Well, he did tattoo his face.

Mike Tyson
 

Mike Tyson

"I can feel it coming in the air tonight ..."

Mike Tyson
 

Mike Tyson

For a man that trains pigeons, it's just crazy enough to work.

Bill Belichick
 

Bill Belichick

Equally as bad as the cut-off hoodies he won't give up.

Bill Belichick
 

Bill Belichick

This feels like we're infringing on Mike Ditka territory.

Bill Belichick
 

Bill Belichick

If Ulysses S. Grant were a 21st-century football coach...

Tim Tebow
 

Tim Tebow

Something he picked up in Florida, from the looks of things.

Tim Tebow
 

Tim Tebow

This does give an intriguing edge to an otherwise unthreatening man.

Tim Tebow
 

Tim Tebow

In his post-NFL days, maybe this is the safest way to get attention.

Jerry Jones
 

Jerry Jones

Falls in line with Jerry's philosophy of doing whatever he wants, no matter what you think.

Jerry Jones
 

Jerry Jones

This is a better look than him nagging Jason Garrett on the sidelines.

Jerry Jones
 

Jerry Jones

Maybe this paints Jones as a caricature, but it's a pretty accurate one, no?

Rafael Nadal
 

Rafael Nadal

As his foothold at the top loosens, Nadal needs every advantage he can get.

Rafael Nadal
 

Rafael Nadal

Thirty years ago, this would have made perfect sense.

Rafael Nadal
 

Rafael Nadal

This look is even less popular in Spain, Nadal's native country.

Gregg Popovich
 

Gregg Popovich

The Spurs coach should try a different look each time he does a sideline interview.

Gregg Popovich
 

Gregg Popovich

Popovich received intelligence training at the Air Force Academy, and disguises are part of the routine for spies.

Gregg Popovich
 

Gregg Popovich

In addition to winning five NBA titles, Popovich has been named coach of the year three times.

Johnny Manziel
 

Johnny Manziel

Since he hasn't gotten much playing time, a mustache could be another way to work his way back into the headlines.

Johnny Manziel
 

Johnny Manziel

Manziel is no stranger to lounges and other after-dark hot spots.

Johnny Manziel
 

Johnny Manziel

Befitting Manziel's Texas roots, this makes some sense. But how does it affect his branding?

Cristiano Ronaldo
 

Cristiano Ronaldo

Few athletes have a head so precisely sculpted as Ronaldo. This doesn't fit.

Cristiano Ronaldo
 

Cristiano Ronaldo

A stache like this would have fit well in this summer's World Cup, when a last-second assist from Ronaldo helped Portugal tie the U.S.

Cristiano Ronaldo
 

Cristiano Ronaldo

Comical as it may be, don't expect this look from the 2013 FIFA Player of the Year.

Jon Gruden
 

Jon Gruden

The man loves entertaining, but this may be too much.

Jon Gruden
 

Jon Gruden

Perhaps his friend Bill Cowher taught him a thing or two about intimidating facial hair.

Jon Gruden
 

Jon Gruden

If Gruden does jump back into coaching after this season, this would be a bad first imrpession.

Ric Flair
 

Ric Flair

Hey, in professional wrestling, when does anything cross the line?

Ric Flair
 

Ric Flair

Quite frankly, if Flair wants to make a splash, this might be a little too conservative.

Ric Flair
 

Ric Flair

It makes no sense, and it's not a good luck. But hey, it worked for Hulk Hogan.

Charles Barkley
 

Charles Barkley

If Barkley's way of talking were a style of facial hair, this would be it.

Charles Barkley
 

Charles Barkley

Barkley wore a stache proudly in his younger playing days, but it hasn't been seen in many years.

Charles Barkley
 

Charles Barkley

Today, Barkley seems happiest when he's ruffling feathers, so maybe this throwback look would do what he wants.

Rory McIlroy
 

Rory McIlroy

If Rory wants to separate himself from the rest of his golf peers, this would do it.

Rory McIlroy
 

Rory McIlroy

After breaking off his engagement to Caroline Wozniacki, it wouldn't be surprising to see him embrace mini rebellions like unorthodox facial hair.

Rory McIlroy
 

Rory McIlroy

Maybe Ben Hogan would applaud this look, but modern golf fans would likely disapprove.

Sidney Crosby
 

Sidney Crosby

Hockey doesn't get much TV viewership these days, but maybe this could help turn around that trend.

Sidney Crosby
 

Sidney Crosby

If there's any sport where this mustache belongs, it's in the NHL.

Sidney Crosby
 

Sidney Crosby

Crosby is targeted enough by other teams as it is -- no need to ask for it.

Jim Harbaugh
 

Jim Harbaugh

If Jim Harbaugh is really on his way out after this season, a stunt like this certainly couldn't hurt.

Jim Harbaugh
 

Jim Harbaugh

Perhaps Jim's trying to channel Jeff Fisher's consistent calm via mustache.

Jim Harbaugh
 

Jim Harbaugh

A mustache like the Monopoly guy, but he still buys his khakis at Wal-Mart.

J.J. Watt
 

J.J. Watt

Watt was a hockey player growing up so he should be familiar with playoff beards.

J.J. Watt
 

J.J. Watt

Watt started his college career as a tight end at Central Michigan.

J.J. Watt
 

J.J. Watt

Then he transferred to Wisconsin and swtiched to defense.

Eli Manning
 

Eli Manning

Hard to improve on the Manning Face.

Eli Manning
 

Eli Manning

The Manning men haven't really pulled off facial hair, historically speaking. Eli is no exception.

Eli Manning
 

Eli Manning

If the Giants continue their slide, this might be a good way to fool passersby on the New York City streets.

Bill Parcells
 

Bill Parcells

He was a fiery coach, but in retirement Parcells is trying to channel his inner Buddhist. At least that's what this look suggests.

Bill Parcells
 

Bill Parcells

The mustache has adorned many a football man over the years, but Parcells has always preferred a clean-shaven look.

Bill Parcells
 

Bill Parcells

Parcells picked this up during his inglorious time as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

Tom Coughlin
 

Tom Coughlin

It hurts to look at, but with two Super Bowl rings, Tom Coughlin has earned a long leash.

Tom Coughlin
 

Tom Coughlin

Back-to-back underwhelming seasons have Coughlin playing the role of villain in New York.

Tom Coughlin
 

Tom Coughlin

Tom loves gun-slinging as much as the next guy, but without a running game, that's been a tough sell for the Giants.

John Calipari
 

John Calipari

If he knew it would give him an edge in recruiting, Calipari might shave his head.

John Calipari
 

John Calipari

Calipari has gone to the Final Four with three schools: UMass, Memphis and Kentucky.

John Calipari
 

John Calipari

While coach of the New Jersey Nets, Calipari got into hot water for calling Star-Ledger reporter Dan Garcia a "----ing Mexican idiot."

Cam Newton
 

Cam Newton

The Panthers owner reportedly isn't a big fan of "alternative" fashions, and this one probably applies.

Cam Newton
 

Cam Newton

Newton's got a cannon for the Wild West -- he threw for 400 yards in his first NFL game.

Cam Newton
 

Cam Newton

While this is a fine look, it's one Newton hasn't embraced thus far in his young career.

Roger Goodell
 

Roger Goodell

Nothing's as bad as the recent scandals that have hit Goodell.

Roger Goodell
 

Roger Goodell

Given the chance, many NFL fans would paint Goodell's mug with far less savory images.

Roger Goodell
 

Roger Goodell

The NFL commish's penchant for expanding the league's bottom-line has made him a villain in many eyes.

Drew Brees
 

Drew Brees

Perhaps Brees is hoping to distract from the hairy birthmark on his cheekbone.

Drew Brees
 

Drew Brees

Brees has never been much of a mustache guy, going all the way back to his playing days at Purdue.

Drew Brees
 

Drew Brees

Now, Brees is one of the league's most prolific passers -- but that isn't helping his team, which is just 3-5 to start 2014.

Jim Nantz
 

Jim Nantz

How would this play at Augusta?

Jim Nantz
 

Jim Nantz

Given that Nantz has been clean-shaven for his entire career, this style twist presents quite the change in direction.

Jim Nantz
 

Jim Nantz

Nantz's voice is regularly featured giving play-by-play for both the NFL and televised golf.

Chris Berman
 

Chris Berman

Berman has played himself in movies including the 2005 remake of The Longest Yard, but maybe this could have enhanced his appearance.

Chris Berman
 

Chris Berman

He once performed with Huey Lewis.

Chris Berman
 

Chris Berman

Did you know Boomer was a history major at Brown University?

Russell Wilson
 

Russell Wilson

No matter what the look, chances are good that Wilson can wrangle an endorsement out of it.

After Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, two other quarterbacks -- Brock Osweiler and Brandon Weeden -- were selected in the 2012 NFL draft before Wilson.

But he was also in charge while PEDs took over the game.
