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!
