10 Movie Astronauts You Wouldn’t Want To Be Stuck In Space With | Galaxy Quest (1999)
Galaxy Quest (1999)

Character: Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen)

Bouffant-coiffed Shatner-alike Nesmith is a preening, washed-up actor re-living his TV glory days at fan conventions for his old show, Galaxy Quest. When he and his bitter cast mates are abducted by a bunch of aliens who think his adventures as Captain Peter Quincy Taggart were real, Nesmith has to step up to become a hero. But oy... What a blowhard. An annoying, cloying, drunken buffoon, we’d hate to have him on our crew, especially when he doesn’t have special alien tech to help out. Never give up? Never surrender? STFU.
