10 Movie Characters Every Guy Wishes He Could Be

Bruce Willis Donates "Die Hard" Memorabilia

John McClane  (Die Hard)

Why is John McClane on this list? I could give the easy answer and just say, “Yippee ki-ya mother—” but instead I’ll ask this: what other character on this list has the ability to singlehandedly stop a group of terrorists from killing numerous innocents (including his own wife), wearing a wife beater and only carrying one pistol, and still make it home for Christmas dinner? Put simply: John McClane is the epitome of an action hero, and that’s something every guy, on some level or another, wants to be.
