"I'm a mushroom cloud-layin' motherfucker, motherfucker!" Jules Winnfield

Played By: Samuel L. Jackson
Film: Pulp Fiction

Why He's On The List: Killing people for a living shouldn't be cool - we know that. But whether it's the hair or the scripture quoting or the endless badinage with Travolta's Vincent Vega, or just Jackson's natural air, this is a supremely cool professional assassin. Plus he spends a good portion of his time in Tarantino's masterpiece discussing his thoughts on leaving 'the life' and reforming his character, so he's not all bad.

Finest Hour: Delivering Ezekiel 25:17 - "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee. "
