YOU!..are a coward

We're always talking about the great heros of SCIFI/ACTION/HERO movies...but what about the cowards. Who was scifi's best coward???

For me? Bill Paxton's character in ALIENS "We're all going to die" stuff while Newt is being brave...

The scene, and I always laugh, that gets me? "Maybe you haven't been keeping up with current events, but we just got our asses kicked, man!!"

Great character..and glas he comes through at the end...but up until that point, he to me, was SCIFI's greatest coward...

Not strictly scifi, but definitely fantasy:

The Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz.

Guy Fleegman from Galaxy Quest played by Sam Rockwell. The guy was a redshirt and he knew it. He had some of the best lines in the film ("Didn't any of you ever watch the show?""Are you high?"...)

I edited the post, for those who can't see the picture. It's The Cowardly Lion.

Baltar in the nuBSG is a spectacular coward, though I suppose this season he's gotten a little more chutzpah.

Either Guy, or Steve Buscemi's character from Armageddon.

I like Paxton more than Rockwell's character, because Paxton's was written as a kick as marine dude...where as Rockwell is just an actor, most of whom are whimps I guess...But the character from Aliens was supposed to be all kick ass, and turned out to be a wuss...

Re: YOU!..are a coward

Sorry, I'm throwing in with Canadave. Dr. Smith was the quintessential coward. And a trouble-maker to boot.

The Guy from the New BSG is Very Cowardly. I love the way they made him British too, so typical.

Hudson wasn't really a coward, he was merely (understandably) traumatised and stressed at the situation he was in.
