My favorite blogger, m.brown, is doing something I never did - he is hosting a blogathon.
I'm working on a separate list of favorite female characters but here it was much easier to choose just the very favorites. And thank God for Chad because the other 3 are so very grumpy.
4. Chad Feldheimer
Played by: Brad Pitt
In: Burn after Reading
The Coen brothers come up with so many interesting and colorful characters but Brad Pitt's naive, sweet and clueless Chad is my absolute favorite one. From his menacing squinting through him thinking a smile can save a man's life to his adorable little dance when he is listening to music, everything Chad does in this movie puts a smile on your face and Pitt completely disappears into character.
Played by: Ian McShane
Deadwood remains my favorite drama series (yes, even Game of Thrones can't dethrone it) and the anti hero Al Swearengen, its main character, is the show's biggest asset. With his elaborate scheming and juicy, sweary one liners, in the talented ensemble you still keep waiting for McShane's Swearengen to show up even if all he is gonna do is call someone a cocksucker.
2. Ron Swanson
Played by: Nick Offerman
In: Parks and Recreation
It's not just that Ron is one of my all time favorite characters, it's also that I agree with so many of his beliefs. Government is useless, private life should be private and it is nobody's business but your own, your address along with other data about you should be confidential almost completely and technology is evil. I'm also weirded out by vegetarians, even with my love for animals. I hate change, crowds, doctors and loud noises. And I don't like to deal with people. Sitting in my office with closed doors with nobody bothering me all day, every day - that's an actual dream I have. The man is my role model.
1. Malcolm Tucker
Played by Peter Capaldi
in: The Thick of It, In the Loop
Tucker is just unbeatable or shall I say unfuckable. The Thick of It is my all time favorite series, I could seriously watch it over and over again. The writing on the show is brilliant but Capaldi makes his Malcolm Tucker so charismatic and frighteningly awesome he is easily my all time favorite character. In the showdown with all the ones on favorite female characters list, he would be a number 1 too.
