We could list classic characters from classic movies all day...let's go a bit more obscure, at least with a few of these...

- Rachel Weisz as Evelyn in The Mummy (she actually makes Brendan Fraser tolerable)
- Tom Hanks as Viktor in The Terminal (the movie...not so good...but Hanks' performance rivals what he did in Castaway)
- Ajay Naidu as Samir in Office Space (Lumbergh gets all the pub, but Samir was awesome)
- Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal
- Owen Wilson as Alex Scott in I Spy (underrated movie, and Wilson is perfect for his role)

And can't leave out!

- Damian Lewis (Maj. Winters), Frank John Hughes (Sgt. Guarnere), and Neal McDonough (1st Lt. Compton) from Band of Brothers (best thing you will ever see on a television!)

I'll second that - def 1st rate!!! And by strange coincidence, I'm sitting here in my Band of Brothers t-shirt while typing this - deja vu!!!

Marlon Brando as Don Corleone (The Godfather)
Pacino as Tony Montana (Scarface)

Gotta be one of those two for me.

Deniro's character in Heat, Neil McCauley. Someone mentioned Jules from Pulp Fiction. How about the chicken leg sucking Marsellus Wallace? He was badass. I mean, before the ... you know....

Some of you guys mentioned some good characters from Office Space, but you left out the best one. MILTON! Milton is an amazing character.

Some others:
Dustin Hoffman in Rainman(i cant remember the name of the character offhand)
Edward Norton as Derrick Vineyard in American History X
Boris 'The Bullet Dodger' in Snatch
Joe Pesci's Characters in Casino and Goodfellas

One of the all-time greats, Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade in The Maltese Falcon.
