Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS
Pretty much every character in The Proposition
There are plenty I’m forgetting, but here are a few of the great characters that I can watch again and again.
Ellen Burstyn, Requiem for a Dream
Daniel Day-Lewis, There Will Be Blood
Forrest Whittaker, The Last King of Scotland
Kevin Spacey, American Beauty
Fred Willard, Best In Show
Naomi Watts, Mulholland Drive
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Aviator
Philip Seymour Hoffman, Doubt
Philip Seymour Hoffman, Love, Liza
Really surprised no one has mentioned The Dude.
OK I came into say the Dude so I’m glad you beat me to it Mediocritic. Also throwing my support behind Ben Linus and Omar Little. Well, really just every character on the Wire, but its not really fair since they do have 5 seasons of character growth as opposed to an hour and a half.
Absolutely Charlie and Donald Kaufman in “Adaptation.”
Yes, The Joker.
Leonard Shelby in “Memento”
Ennis del Mar from Brokeback Mountain had so much depth and beauty it was a shame that Heath Ledger didn’t win his Oscar for that performance!

Gabriel Byrne’s character (Tom) in Miller’s Crossing. He reminded me of character Humphrey Bogart would play with his quips and shady motives, but he was both colder to his enemies than Bogart was and, in some parts, warmer to his friends.
