Top Ten Tuesday: Movie/TV Characters

Top Ten Tuesday is my new favorite thing! Sina beat me to the punch this week--you have to check out hers b/c she's the queen of slide shows (which I tried this time and totally love!!). This week there was just no way I could limit it to less than 11. But that was always one of our rules--the top ten moderators could change the rules if necessary. :)

1. Wolverine, X-Men: Because of him, I actually thought I liked action movies. Turns out I just like X-Men....or truthfully I just like Wolverine.

2. Maximus Decimus Meridius, Gladiator: Commander of the Roman Army. YES---we ARE entertained!

3. Count Laszlo de Almásy, The English Patient: This is still my favorite movie...for a lot of reasons, of which he is at the top of the list.

4. Rusty Ryan, Oceans 11-13: Classic case of liking the character better than the person. :)

5. Simon Templar, The Saint: It really was all downhill from here.

6. Hector, Troy: The valiant, noble and honorable son. When he died, so did this movie.

7. Will Tippin, ALIAS: While many of you loved Vaughn, Will was always my favorite. This particular episode of Will as the "Australian" Rock Star has been saved on my Tivo for over 2 years....and I even own the DVDs!

8. King Leonidas, 300: I hated this movie....and even left before it was over....that's how big of an impact he made!

9. James Bond: I have loved them all! But Pierce is my favorite.

10. Jason Bourne, Bourne movies: Can't really explain why I love this character....but I think it has something to do w/him being a skilled hairdresser....twice!

11. Edmond Dantes, The Count of Monte Cristo: I've loved all his characters--but the one where he arrives at his own party in a hot air ballon deserves special mention.

Mmmm...yes Puhleez!! Nice work, I LOVE it. But King Leonidas...I am going to have to look into that one a bit more. I love how your fave characters are all these strapping brutes who could kill you with their pinky!!

Ok, so my top ten male characters will have to wait until this Tuesday . . . decorating for Halloween took way longer than I'd anticipated. Ha ha! But I love your list, Shannon. Of course you know how I feel about Wolverine, and I'd completely forgotten about Rusty Ryan. Such a good one, despite the fact that Brad isn't as desirable in person. :) And Hector. Wow. You've got some fine taste, girl! :)
