Favorite and Unforgettable Characters (Novel, Movie, Series, Broadway)

Recommended Posts

Curious as to what your most unforgettable fictitious characters are that you just can't stop thinking about. 

My first thought is always Behemoth from Master and Margarita. Chess and vodka drinking cat that is a bit raunchy and funny as hell.

Going back to movies I loved the character's Eli Wallach played, Tuco in 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly'  and the character, Joe Pesci played, Leo Getz in 'Lethal Weapon 3&4, those two characters lit up the Clint Eastwood & Mel Gibson films, laughed my fucking socks off watching them two in some scenes. xD
