    Who are some cool/badass old/older male characters in the movies and in TV programs? Gentlemen who may be a bit past their prime, but still quite formidable.

    I'll get the ball rolling with Barristan Selmy, in the HBO series Game of Thrones. He is an aging, but still very capable swordsman who was a knight and the commander of the King's guard, The Gold Cloaks, before being sent away.

    Another one I liked was the character Max Cherry, in the movie Jackie Brown. He was the bail bondsman that ended up helping Jackie Brown turn the tables on Samuel Jackson's character.

    Who are your favorites!

    Jean Reno from The Professional and Ronin is pretty cool.
    Same with Dennis Farina. That guy cracks me up in almost every movie or show that he's in. Another guy that died too young.

    Max Cherry was cool as well. Would have dug seeing a spin off or two with his character. That actor also plays Tim Allen's father on Last Man Standing.

    Sam Elliot's character in We Were Soldiers. He was a SGT-Major, but I forget his name.

    "Good morning SGT-Major."

    I loved the scene with the war photographer prone on the ground during a major attack trying to get even lower. He looks up & sees Elliott standing tall who smiles and comments how it's hard to take pictures from down there. :uglylol:
