In honor of the unfortunate passing of R. Lee Ermey, this week we decided to count down our 5 favorite supporting characters from a whole litany of movies. We quickly realized that we had bitten off more than we could chew with this massive topic, because there are literally MILLIONS of supporting characters, but we decided to give it a shot anyway!
Question for you:Who are some of your favorite supporting characters from movies? Also, what do you think it truly takes to be a good supporting character?
