Many films he made were utter garbage in terms of the quality, but I commend him for trying different roles. The same with Arnie. However, their comedy efforts are variably hilarious, to being God awful...

Lon Chaney is best known for playing the Phantom of the Opera, and yes, he was the real and roughly the original "man of a thousand faces", before operatives Rollin Hand and Ethan Hunt adopted his game.

Freddy from Copland. I really like Rocky, too, but he didn't get as much acclaim for his portrayal in Copland

I used the same method for making my choice for this thread like I did in the "FAVORITE MOVIE TRILOGY MALE CHARACTER" thread.  I listed Stallone's best roles, IMHO, alphabetically:

A.)Angelo "Snaps" Provolone, from "Oscar(1991)";
B.)Barney Ross, from "The Expendables(2010)";
C.)Deke DeSilva, from "Nighthawks(1981)";
D.)Frank Leone, from "Lock Up(1989)";
E.)Freddy Heflin, from "Cop Land(1997)";
F.)Gabe Walker, from "Cliffhanger(1993)";
G.)Jack Carter, from "Get Carter(2000)";
H.)John Rambo, from "First Blood(1982)";
I.)  John Spartan, from "Demolition Man(1993)";
J.) Joseph Dredd, from "Judge Dredd(1995)";
K.)Kit Latura, from "Daylight(1996)";
L.)Lincoln "Linc" Hawk, from "Over The Top(1987)";
M.)Marion "Cobra" Corbetti, from "Cobra(1986)";
N.)Ray Tango, from "Tango & Cash(1989)";
O.)Rocky Balboa, from "Rocky(1976)"; &
P.) Toymaker, from "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over(2003)"

And then I used the old-fashioned "eeney, neeny, miney, mo" tactic as a process-of-elimination to make my choice, and the winner was....


Sure, I could have just gone ahead and picked either "ROCKY BALBOA" or "JOHN RAMBO", like others on this site probably do, because these characters are top-rated characters.  But, I wanted to be impartial and fair in difference to all of Stallone's other roles that he has portrayed over the years besides "ROCKY" and "RAMBO".
