My favorite Top 100 Movie Characters - Part 3

Part one.
Part two.

We've reached the top 50...

49. Jack Casey (Kevin Bacon, Quicksilver)

48. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park)
47. Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves, Point Break)
46. Flight Lt. Hendley (James Garner, The Great Escape)
45. Det. Sgt. Deke DaSilva (Sylvester Stallone, Nighthawks)
44. Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino, The Last Seduction)
43. John Phillip Law (Sinbad, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad)
42. Riki-Oh (Story of Riki-Oh, Siu Wong Fan)

This is one of the more tamer fight scenes from the movie:

41. Danny Ocean (George Clooney, Ocean's 11)
40. Popeye Doyle (Gene Hackman, The French Connection)

39. Jack Colton (Michael Douglas, Romancing the Stone)
38. Harry Gondorf (Paul Newman, The Sting)
37. Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster, Silence of the Lambs)
36. Mac (Steve Lemme, Super Troopers)

Actually I love the whole Broken Lizard gang, but I thought Mac had some of the best lines in Super Troopers and also that streak of danger that made you think he would shoot you if slightly provoked.

35. Carl Bernstein (Robert Redford, All the President's Men)
34. Bart (Clevon Little, Blazing Saddles)
33. McCroskey (Lloyd Bridges, Airplane)

32. Maj. Keith Mallory (Robert Shaw, Force 10 from Navarone)
31. Chad (Aaron Ekhardt, In the Company of Men)

This might be tougher to watch out of context. I'm not sure. In the Company of Men is not a nice film to watch.

30. Big Ern (Bill Murray, Kingpin)
29. Frank White (Christopher Walken, King of New York)
28. Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss, Jaws)
27. Irwin M. Fletcher (Chevy Chase, Fletch)
26. Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin, The Hunt for the Red October)
25. Jason (Robert Urich, Ice Pirates)

I might get ambitious and put the top 25 up later today. Check back when you can!
