2 Sgt. Maj. Basil Plumley played by Sam Elliott (1st) Movie: We Were Soliders Once… - I tried to keep this list as just fictional characters (which is why Lou Gehrig isn't on this list)… but this guy. Wow. I read the book long before I saw the movie and, in my opinion, Sam Elliott nailed this role. He played it exactly how I pictured it when I was reading the book.
1 Rocky Balboa played by Sylvester Stallone (1st) Movie: Rocky - You can make a case for a lot of these characters being #1 on this list. Let me tell you why Rocky is #1. Rocky is the only fictional character (that I know of) to be inducted into a real hall of fame. Yep, Rocky Balboa is in the Boxing Hall of Fame. THAT'S the sign of a great movie character.
