I don't really know where this meme started to begin with, or where it will end, but...it's been floating around the blogosphere for a few weeks, at least, and now it's my turn to play. The challenge is to pick your 10 favorite movie characters...ever! ( If you haven't been tagged yet...then I'm tagging you now....so, get to work on your own list! )
Here is the best that I can do without going completely mental. I have six honorable mentions, because, I just have to, alright?
Here's the Six honorable mentions:
Virgil Tibbs...In The Heat Of The Night
"They call me Mr. Tibbs!"
Slater...from Dazed And Confused. Actually Rory Cochrane would be in my Top 50 twice. He also played Lucas in Empire Records. Never understood why he didn't have a bigger career. These two characters are night and day and he owns them both.
Mary Poppins..."practically perfect in every way".
Marge Gunderson...Oh, you betcha! Fargo
Hans Gruber..."Give me my detonators."
Keyser Soze...Who is Keyser Soze?
The Usual Suspects
Top 10...numbers 10 - 5
10. The Waco Kid...
9. Jimmy Dugan...A League Of Their Own
Two alchoholics in a row...thoughts?
8. Doc Holliday...Val Kilmer style...Tombstone
"I'm your huckleberry."
Where was his Oscar nomination?
7. Charity Hope Valentine...Sweet Charity
