"A) You can never go too far. B) If I get caught, it is not going to be by a guy like that." Ferris Bueller

Played By: Matthew Broderick
Film: Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Why He's On The List: Perhaps the least angry voice of teen rebellion you'll ever come across, Ferris has no great obstacles in life (he's from a wealthy family, and his biggest gripe is that he was given a birthday computer instead of a car), but his quest is universal - to have a good time, and to do it now while he's young. Broderick's challenge is to keep what could be a malcontent brat likeable, and he achieves this in spades. It's a role he's never managed to top, but if you're going to be remembered, why not for something as awesome as this?

Finest Hour: Performing Twist & Shout on a Chicago parade float in front of thousands of people.
