Ah... my forte' - the motion picture industry. "cool" eh? I'll give it a whack. Mickey Rourke - Sin City Antonio Banderas - Desperado Bruce Lee - Enter The Dragon Morgan Freeman - Shawshank Redemption Kevin Spacey - The Usual Suspects Sort of an eclectic mix, but whatever. Those are the coolest characters that haven't been mentioned yet as far as I'm concerned.

I recognized this after my first post here as well. I set out to get more. In addition to those that you have, there is Sidney Poitier, as MISTER Tibbs, In The Heat Of The Night Ron O'Neal, as Priest, Superfly Richard Roundtree, as Det. John Shaft, Shaft Ernie Hudson, as Winston Zedemore, Ghostbusters

And oh yeah, who was the suave white dude in Enter the Dragon? Bruce Lee was the star and cooler but if we're going on smooooth... Hey, Tim Meadows as De Ladies' Man should count.

I thought to include Samuel L. Jackson from PF, but I knew someone else would include him, and I forgot Eddie Murphy in BHC, thats a good one. The rest of the characters on your list I just didn't find to be very "cool". Eric

I thought Denzel was better in Mississippi Masala and The Mighty Quinn. And, I liked Fishburne better in Boyz N the Hood. Trivia, a very young (18?) Fishburne had a role in Apocalypse Now.

And, someone no one has mentioned yet, Cary Grant in just about anything. I liked him in Notorious. He and Bergman shined in that one. In fact, I like just about every Hitchcock film.
