10 Male Leads That Made Their TV Show A Hit

9. Rick Sanchez - Rick & Morty

Dexter Anthony michael hall
Adult Swim

Rick Sanchez is a genius scientist who has been all across the universe and lived a crazy, often illegal life. He is also an alcoholic, and a reckless sociopath. Voiced by Justin Roiland, Rick’s selfish and mean behaviour is hilarious, especially towards his grandson, Morty, who he takes through the galaxy with him on their many adventures.

While Rick can be rough around the edges, it makes the moments of kindness and love that shine through towards Morty and his family that much more satisfying. The dialogue is hilarious and brilliantly written, and Rick’s unknown past adds depth and mystery to this wonderful animation.

I like to think of myself as a world traveler and social butterfly, although I do spend a lot of my time watching the latest Japanese anime series, sitcoms, movies, and drama series. I live on the island of Crete, where I was born, and enjoy walking on the beach with my little cocker spaniel, Molly, when I'm not writing for WhatCulture.com and UNILAD.co.uk.
