Hmmm that’s quite hard so I’m going with a list of 5 and then watching what other people stick in to copy people with more of a clue than me….

1. Popeye Doyle (French Connection)

2. King Kong

3. Jimmy (Quadrophenia)

4. Kowalski (Vanishing Point)

5. Sam Rothstein (Casino)

Perhaps I need to get a bit more in touch with my feminine side.

When i grew up i loved star wars but my favourite character was always Wedge. it really used to annoy me when people didnt know who he was....

Tucker in all the Rush hour films as well was brilliant.

Stiffler is also amongst my favourites

Hans Landa from inglorious bastards who was brilliantly played by Christopher Waltz, one of my favourite 'baddies'

On the subject of baddies i love hans Gruber from Die Hard

others that come to mind are Jason Bourne (killing people with pens and the like), Simon Pegg in both Hot fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. neo in the first Matrix film. V from V for Vendetta
