But supposing he decided to found his own 'Homers Club' and invite all great cinematic characters of the same name, which one would you pick as your second favorite? (or your favorite if you're not too fond on Homr... not a typo)
My enthusiastic vote:
HOMER PARRISH (Harold Russell in The Best Days of Our Lives)
BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR WINNER 1946 (and a Honorary Oscar for "bringing hope and courage to his fellow veterans", he first disabled actor to achieve such a feat, playing a real-life disabled veteran)

Homer Origin and Meaning
The name Homer is a boy's name of Greek origin meaning "security, pledge".
Homer is a name that has traveled from the ancient Greek scribe
of the great classical epics to Bart Simpson's doltish dad, and has
also become the surprise hot celebrity pick of such parents as Richard
Gere (his father's name), Bill Murray, and Anne Heche. Simpsons creator Matt Groening has both a father and a son named Homer.
Because of the epic scope of The Odyssey and The Iliad, the term "homeric" implies work on an enormous scale, while "homeric laughter" references the unrestrained laughter of the Greek gods.
With its quirky resume, Homer could make an interesting choice.
