Yay, underdogs! There are so many good choices that I'm going to have to deliberate on my vote. I really love this poll.

FYC:
Rudy Baylor (and Deck Shiffleck) in The Rainmaker (The one-sentence intro/plot says "An underdog lawyer takes on a fraudulent insurance company." And indeed Rudy and Deck were the quintessential underdogs, like David vs. Goliath.)

(There are no photos right now of Deck or of Rudy and Deck.)
