2. Ryan Gosling
Lars Lindstrom
Lars, an excruciatingly shy man, shocks his brother Gus and sister-in-law Karin when he introduces them to his new girlfriend... a sex doll. Lars, it seems, is both delusional and besotted, and the doctor they consult encourages the baffled community to play along until he moves on.

The thing is, Lars doesn't seem to need Bianca (the doll, a full-lipped brunette) for sex. Rather, he explains to friends and family that she is a Mormon missionary, so he places her in a separate bed. He also states she is paraplegic, which explains why she doesn't move.

When a fellow co-worker reaches out to Lars, he must decide whether to continue wheeling about his plastic companion, or whether to give her up for a human connection.

3. Greg Timmermans
Ben
Ben is a Aspergian Belgian teenager who retreats into a Dungeons & Dragons-esque RPG (for you non-nerds, that's a Role Playing Game.) Bullied relentlessly at high school with little to no support, he considers suicide as an alternative to pain, and an embarressing prank posted on youtube just exacerbates the matter.

Despite a lame-o 'twist' ending, "Ben X" is original and innovative in the sense that it presents the situation from the autistic perspective, with minimal exaggeration, unlike "Mozart & the Whale." Many people delve into activities, but it is perhaps felt most deeply by people on the autistic spectrum, who find their real-world functions impaired.

4. Eamonn Owens
Francie Brady-
Francie's reminiscence of his demented childhood sets the melancholy tone for "The Butcher Boy." As a kid, his hobbies were reading comic books, torturing the mama's boy next door, & feeling responsible for his self-destructive mother's happiness.

When it becomes clear to him that he has failed, and the tragedy is followed by paranoid schizophrenia, the loss of his family, institutionalization, and molestation, Francie takes remorseless and misguided revenge against his snobby neighbor, who openly degraded his family in the past.

His story is the depiction of a life ruined, & an inside view of the young people we read in the papers every day.

Griffin
I don't really know what to say about Griffin. He's just... adorable. He's an alien living in the 60's who can tell the future, and he helps Agents Jay and Kay in his own quirky way. I can see why some people might find him annoying, but I personally loved him. He speaks really quickly, and to me the way he talks sounds kind of Asperger's, but maybe that's just me *shrugs*

Eli-
A mysterious girl whose appearance in a small Swedish town coincides with a string of murder, vampire Eli comes with her pedophile minion Hakan, who is intrigued by the fact she acts like an adult and looks like a child, relieving him of his guilt.

This is put at stake when she meets Oskar, a solemn pre-teen boy who is pushed around in life. He helps her rediscover childhood, and even when he finds out she 'needs blood' and the neighbors start disappearing, he stands by her loyally.

Oh yes. He has a bullying problem. She helps him with that. The swimming pool scene is hard to forget.

23. Stephen Root

Eddie Gauthier- Self-conscious, lonely, and sexually obsessed, Eddie is the most unique vampire to be featured on "True Blood." Depressed and distraught after his wife leaves him and seperates him from his son because of his gay sexuality (or so he says,) Eddie wanders bars hoping to score, but is rejected at every turn.

The solution? Become a vampire to appeal to the fangbanger culture! As an undead lacking muchness, he watches TV and seeks services from the fabulous Lafeyette, pretending the relationship has actual intimacy. I won't spoil the whole thing, but things go sour fast. F**k Amy Burley!

True Blood
*******************
Milton Waddams
Dozens of cubicle workers know the truth-- Initech is hell. And the peciularily named Milton Waddams knows better than anyone. Continuely harrassed by his passive aggressive boss BIll Lumburgh, mumbling, mentally 'different' Milton puts up with constant moving of his desk, mistreatment, and the moment where Bill takes the stapler Milton he may or may not of stolen, who Milton has a almost fetishistic attachment to.

Milton, being the genuinely odd chap he is, threatens to burn down the building and tries to start conversasions with his coworker about rodent fornication, but after his stapler is taken- well, that's the final straw, and his drastic revenge may either get him put in jail or make him the hero of all the other cubicle workers at Initech.

Tallahassee-
Bad-ass, with an arsenal of killer cool lines, Tallahassee keeps his grief at the loss that came with the zombie apocalypse at bay with an almost sadistic obsession with killing the walking dead.

Teamed with socially awkward and paranoid Columbus, Tallahassee gets outsmarted by a teenaged girl and her little sister, meets Bill Murray (with unfortunate and hilarious results,) and shoots lots and lots of the undead. Who doesn't like Tallahassee? To use my younger brothers gaming language, he owns.

Leonard Shelby
After the rape of his wife, Leonard Shelby is on a quest for revenge. The catch- he suffered a blow to the head and resulting head injury during the struggle, and has lost his short term memory.

It's not amnesia, he explains to people- he can remember both his childhood and the attack, but cannot make new memories.

His solution is to tattoo himself with clues, as well as write constant notes, creating an artifical memory for himself as he attempts to finds the perprators. Due to his disability, everyone he knows exploits him to the umpth degree.

I thought part of the point of being a vigilante is no one gives gives you any bull. Anyway, go out and watch this movie before hearing any more about it because the twist is pretty cool and the last thing you want is a spoiler.

32. Ralph Fiennes
Dennis 'Spider' Cleg
Recently released from an Asylum in 20th century England, Dennis, known as Spider, has difficulty grappling with his past. Under the watch of intrusive Mrs. Wilkinson, the lady of the halfway house where he is staying, Spider 'follows' his younger self around. It is revealed he had quite the fascination with his mother, and his father was an alcoholic.

Then tragedy occurs, and Spider is left without a mother. But it gradually becomes clear that what Dennis saw may not be what happened at all. Ralph Fiennes does a great job in this role, and it should be a hit with people who like slower paced, creative psychological films.
