It's not really a disability, but I am pleased to see someone with a hairlip, like the actor Joaquin Phoenix do well. There was another actor whose name I can't recall, that had a hairlip that he kept concealed with a moustache. He played "Mike Hammer" in a detective series.



When I was a kid, I remember one of the Barrymore's, who was confined to a wheelchair being in a number of prominent films.



The English actor, Dudley Moore comes to mind. I believe he had a club foot.



I'm sure there are a number of others as well.

One who comes to mind is the actor who plays the ME on CSI. He lost a leg due to an auto accident. Also, not an actor, but Ronan Tynan, one of the Irish Tenors is a double amputee due to a birth defect.
