Han Solo (Star Wars series)
Even though the original Star Wars trilogy centered on Luke Skywalker and the redemption of his father, Anakin, aka Darth Vader, it was Han Solo that kept audiences coming back for more. Solo, perfectly portrayed by Harrison Ford, personifies the “shoot first, ask questions later” mentality of a true cowboy, and he has a confidence and swagger that every guy envies. Plus, he pilots the fastest ship in the galaxy (even if it is a little beaten up) and is best friends with the world’s coolest Wookie. What more could you want?
