Cole from The Sixth Sense, for sure! Merrill from Signs is up there, too.

Well, since this is a LITW board, I'll stick with my favorite LITW characters (and, man, were they ever characters, if you know what I mean. :)) : Cleveland Heep is too easy a pick, because he's everyone's favorite, so I'll have to go with Vick Ran. But Anna and Reggie are way up there, too. They were so funny! ....Tough call. I even liked the smoker dudes. They were great!

Reggie! I think his story seems quite silly at first, but it turns out to be quite special by the end.

I know this will sound predictable,but my favourite still remains Cleveland Heep ::)
Then I also like Mr.Leeds,always watching war-scenes on the tv.

Mr. Leeds was one of the most confusing characters I had ever seen, that is until the end.  Rulm, what's your favorite Lady In The Water character? You just put down your favorite characters.

The best part about Reggie is that in the beginning he's a real joke. Cleveland is kinda being mean to him, and he seems to be a goof-ball heading nowhere with no real purpose.

I just love how that all changes for him in the end. Everyone is important.  ;D

Love Vick and Anna, but how about the neighbor lady telling all her husbands business...  "but don't tell him I told you."  She is a wonderful character!!

I like Dr Malcom Crowe's comment about Reggie, I agree with him.  Another funny character is Young Soon, the way she and her mother interact is just great.  I come from a large family and we sometimes act like that.

Given that I disliked most of the characters in LITW, I'll have to go with the common pick,  Cleveland Heep.  Even though I really didn't care for the movie much, and I think in part because of the characters in it, I thought Giamatti did another great job, and Heep's character was definitely a very compelling one.

That's one thing a lot of people I talk to can't deny.  Night's movies, cinematically, and acting wise, are great.

Nice point.

Besdies Mr. Heep (nice name BTW), I really like the character of Mr. Farber, well, I like the way it was written. I like how self-conscious and so sure he knew what he was talking about and then he dies even though, as he explains he shouldn't have. I would think anyone who was a writer would LOVE this.  I also really LOVED Vick Ran. There was great realization and depth in this small cameo.

Sorry, I guess it just seemed "cameo" since he is the director. Still, I dig it. I really like all of the characters soooo much. There's not one I would change.

I would give more depth to the secondary characters that become the main people in the end.
