My Favorite Heroes
Thanks for having me here today to celebrate the release of Wicked Ride!Â I thought itâ€™d be fun to talk about my favorite television or movie heroes, and I thought Iâ€™d choose lucky seven.Â What do you think?
- Heâ€™s the hero in J.D. Robbâ€™s Death series.Â Roarke is a guy with a bad past trying to find a good futureâ€¦which is smart since he married a cop.Â He tries to stay inside the lines for her, but thereâ€™s no question heâ€™ll cross over if necessary.Â Plus, heâ€™s tall, dark with blue eyes, and Irish.Â Very hot!
- Malcolm Reynolds. In Joss Whedenâ€™s Firefly, Mal is the leader of a group of misfits trying to travel space and keep their freedom.Â They also try to balance the scales between good and evil, right and wrong, even though lots of time theyâ€™re not sure which side theyâ€™re really on.
- Rick Blain. Yeah, you knew weâ€™d get to Humphrey Bogart at some time, right?Â Rick is the classic anti-hero (as are most of the fellas up above).Â In Casablanca, his past is sketchy, his present unnerving, and his future up in the air.Â Yet heâ€™s strong and determined to live life on his own terms â€“ ultimately sacrificing love for the better good.Â In the scene where Ilsa says something about the first time they met, the same day the Germans marched into Paris, Rick says it wasnâ€™t an easy day to forget.Â Ilsa agrees, and Rick says, â€œI remember very detail.Â The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.â€
- Sheriff John Biebe. Russell Crow played the sherrif in Mystery, Alaska, a movie about a small town waaaay up north.Â He is a big fish in a small pond, ice skating is king, and the story comes down to a David v. Golieth finish.Â The sheriff rocks.
- Angel. Â Â Itâ€™s probably not a big surprise that I like vampires and tall, dark, and deadly men.Â Angel is a fun hero because he constantly fights his inner demon to be good, even though he believes thereâ€™s no way heâ€™ll ever find redemption.Â Yet he keeps on fighting.
- Seeley Booth. Yes, heâ€™s the hero in Bones (and Angel), and heâ€™s an FBI agent who truly draws the line between good and evil.Â Heâ€™s an ex-sniper with a lot of blood on his hands, but heâ€™s okay with most of it since he was serving his country.Â Heâ€™s also a single dadâ€¦who keeps falling for women who wonâ€™t commit.Â (And he catches ALL the bad guys).Â His character is fascinatingâ€¦but the guy also has abs of steel.Â Just sayin.
- Jamie Frasier: Anybody else watching Outlander?Â He is such an incredible heroâ€¦ready and willing to absolutely run through fire to save the woman he loves.
Who are your favorite heroes?
