Played by: Ken Foree
Film(s): Dawn of the Dead (1978)
The coolest character in any Romero zombie film (and, by extension, any zombie film), Ken Foree's SWAT guy is cooler than a cucumber Cornetto, equally adroit at wearing turtlenecks and cooking romantic meals as he is roundhouse-kicking zombies and ominously intoning, 'When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the Earth'. When the world goes to pot, we'd like to be like Peter. He's the reason why Simon Pegg's Shaun works at Foree Electric, and Foree is electric here. Knowing our luck, we'll be more like Peter Mannion.
