Though it isn't quite yet over, and Martin Scorsese's Wolf Of Wall Street is yet to come (along with Justin Bieber's entirely unnecessary movie,) the film industry of 2013 is now running on empty. As such, attention inevitably turns to the highs and lows of the year's best and worst films, and specifically the characters and performances that defined the year. While some will chastise the worst acting performances, and others heap accolades of those which deserve awards attention, the reality is that it is the coolest characters, and the most deliciously bad-ass who will go down longer in audience memories. Looking to join a heady list that includes The Dude, Patrick Bateman and Withnail, the characters in question aren't necessarily from the greatest films, but they bleed the kind of appeal that pushes them to another level altogether. They are the bad-asses, the cult heroes and the irresistible villains who have made 2013 a better year for films, and they deserve extra credit.
