If someone says "Homer", we might think of the Greek poet, but we're not all scholars... and our immediate thought would most certainly be the one and only Homer J. Simpson, and that's the honest truth (Ruth).

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)

ElMo,

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.

For your consideration, the original Homer:

The first Homer I thought of was Homer the Beachcomber from the children's book.  :)

NarniaisAwesome never heard of that and not ashamed to admit that I would've picked that up and read in an instant  despite I'm 27 years. It's just that illustration on the cover is very wholesome. :)

I still enjoy reading children's book, whether they're short or chapter.  They can be so much sweeter than some dark adult novels.

FUN FACT: about dark novels

1-Fifty Shades of Grey

2-Fifty Shades DARKer 

3-Fifty Shades Freed

So, if we do some math WE have 50 shades but in the next book or movie we have 50 shades darker for a total of 100 shades if the last movie we have lighter so 

50+50=100

100-50=50

So, basically you are making 2 movies about the same 50 shades the first one and the third one.

Another theory, WARNING THIS THEORY IS BORING DONT READ IT.

So maybe they were talking about 50 shades lighter than the first 50 shades, and not 50 shades lighter than the 50 shades darker than the first 50 shades with this theory we get 2 equations.

50+50=100

and 50-50=0

Basically shows that you maybe have 50 shades lighter than the shades shown in the first movie.

cinephile,
that is hilarious (and true)!  I'm not a math person, so I'm glad someone else figured that out.  ;)  I've never read them, but people who I know have taste similar to mine have said, in short, it sucks.  :)
