Captain Malcolm Reynolds - Firefly
For me, this is a piece of cake. From the moment I saw him order a glass of ng-ka-pei in ”The Train Job” to the last time he expressed shock when a buffer panel flew off his ship in the big-screen Serenity, I was hooked.
More than just a Solo clone, Reynolds exuded a deeper pain and more appropriately timed ideals than his possibly more famous counterpart, but he could still take on on the chin as well as Han. The man exuded cool, timing and debonair attitudes — except when things didn’t go smooth.
As with any good character, I have a hard time separating the character from the actor. Nathan Fillion brought Mal to life, and it’s still obvious in interviews with him today that he misses the captain as much as I do.
