The list includes The Monk With No Name (Chow Yun-Fat) in Bulletproof Monk -- I love Chow Yun-Fat, but yeah, that was a dumb character -- and Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, which I admit I never watched. Ace is Buddhist?
How about Best Buddhist Characters? Per the "worst list" rules, these have to be "movie characters who identify as Buddhist—not the Buddhish ones, like The Matrix’s Neo or Groundhog Day’s Phil Connors, but the ones who actually wear the mantle of the three jewels." And since the "worst" list include The Sopranos, I'd like to broaden it to television series.
Are there any characters you can think of that truly represent Buddhism in a way that doesn't ever make you wince? Even a little?
