"This is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules." Walter Sobchak

Played By: John Goodman
Film: The Big Lebowski

Why He's On The List: There's no shortage of great characters in the Coen Brothers' canon, but they don't get much better than Walter. Written especially for Goodman, this bellowing, Vietnam war-obsessed bowling fanatic , notable for his short temper and a love of guns, belongs firmly in the 'once seen, never forgotten' hall of fame.

Finest Hour: Attempting to exact revenge on a fifteen year old for stealing the dude's car by taking to a new sports car with a golf club, only to find it belongs to a guy down the street.
