i may be mistaken, but i recall hearing more than once that their dialgoue in that scene was shot completely separate. doesn't make the scene any worse, but it would be cooler to know that they actually sat opposite each other.

Excellent choices. Also, I would go with Christopher Walken in just about anything. For nomination purposes though I'd go with either his character in True Romance or Suicide Kings.

Harrison Ford as Rick Decker in Bladerunner
Clancy Brown as the Kurgan in Highlander
Robert Shaw as Red Grant in From Russia with Love
Pacino as Lefty in Donnie Brasco

I tried to think of a female character to add to the list but I can't come up with any.

Mookie, you reminded me of someone.

Clancy Brown as Brother Justin in "Carnivale"

Also, while we're on HBO and cable shows (better than most movies since it's the last bastion of free-creativity)

Tony Soprano
Vorenus from "Rome"
Al Swearengen from "Deadwood"
Bill Maher (haha)

Also,
Vic Mackey from "The Shield"
Jack Bauer of course
Bobby Brown in real life
and the kid that inherited the general store on "Jericho"

I would go with Silvio (his Pacino impersonations are just the epitome of cool for me lol) instead of Tony but if we're talking television just about any of the main characters from The Sopranos are good choices. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

See, I think Napoleon is the least cool movie character ever. This isn't a thread about the biggest d-bags.

Can't argue with that; both Silvio and Pauly are awesome, and Christopher is pretty badass in his own way.

Yeah, any character would be right up there.

If we are allowed to use HBO, then without a doubt Omar from The Wire

He has "Great one liners," "Ice coolness," and
"Great stares instead of talking at times."

Who needs sunglasses when you have a scare across your face?
