    Joker was great, but Ermy was gold in that. Animal Mother gets a nod too.

    An unsung forgotten is Kirk Douglas as Colonel Dax in Paths to Glory. Excellent movie, great role..

    George C. Scott - Patton. I guess that may not qualify since it is biographical...

    Screw that... It counts.

    The best ones are the real ones anyway...That's why I liked the Band of Brothers character so much.

    Not really a military character but a character that was kind of pushed into a duty to help the military.

    Carey Grant in Father Goose.

    The scene with the fish always cracks me up...

    [catching a fish barehanded. A fish swims toward them]
    Walter Eckland: [In a hushed voice] Hey, here she comes again.
    Catherine Freneau: How do you know it's a "she"?
    Walter Eckland: Her mouth is open, now be quiet.

    Tom Hanks in forest Gump.

    He was a hero and a guy that lived a crazy life without much want in the world besides a girl that he loved.

    He gave almost everything he had away and got shot saving 5-6 guys lives.
