Bedrock Sports Hawaii, through its entertainment division “97X, the Future of Rock and Roll,” brings you a light-hearted offering today.
There’s been a mild buzz on Twitter lately with people listing their favorite movie or TV characters of all-time.
For some that could be a task that takes some time. So many movies and shows. So many characters.
But it can be fun and fast, too, so Bedrock’s Nick Abramo took about five minutes to recall some of his favorite characters in order to pass them on to readers here. No science involved, just some memorable moments.
And it doesn’t take much to go to YouTube.com and get some clips to put here so viewers who haven’t seen that particular movie or character may say ‘Hey, that’s pretty cool. I want to watch that.” Of course, they could also say, “That’s pretty dumb and I would never watch that.”
Anyway, without further ado, here are a quick five characters, not in any order. Enjoy.
Col. William Kurtz

From “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off “(1986), played by Matthew Broderick

“Indians” … “Firecracker” … “Swamp” — three words that make up a nice little thematic summary of not only “Easy Rider” but also the 1960s counterculture movement.
