If you're familiar with Coen films, you'll know they are often full of quirky and interesting characters.  Empire Magazine has compiled their list of the 20 Best Alternative Coen Characters.  They include:

Blood Simple

  • Loren Visser

Raising Arizona

  • Dot
  • Nathan Arizona

Miller's Crossing

  • Johnny Caspar
  • Tic Tac

Barton Fink

  • Jack Lipnick
  • W.P. Mayhew

Hudsucker Proxy

  • Waring Hudsucker
  • Buzz

Fargo

The Big Lebowski

  • Marty

O Brother Where Art Thou?

  • Penny Wharvey McGill

The Man Who Wasn't There

Intolerable Cruelty

  • Gus Petch
  • Wheezy Joe

No Country For Old Men

  • Deputy Wendell
  • Gas Station Proprietor

Burn After Reading

A Serious Man

  • Sy Ableman
I think my favorite one would have to be Marty, The Dude's landlord.  That fist-pump is classic!  What about you?  What are some of your favorite characters?  I was surprised to find some characters missing, but I'm not sure where Empire was drawing the line between a main, minor or alternative character.  Check out the list of characters and Empire's reasoning here - http://www.empireonline.com/features/the-best-alternative-coen-characters/default.asp?page=1
