Big Ern Ernie McCracken

Ernie McCracken
Appearing at the beginning and end of “Kingpin”, Ernie McCracken may be our favorite sports villain ever. With the most awesome comb over of all-time, the slimy, womanizing was easily the king of obnoxious behavior and though we developed sympathy for Roy Munson, we could not help but cheer when “Big Ern” won the bowling tournament at the end. There are times we think that Bill Murray can do no wrong.

The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
Kingpin (1996)

Bill Murray

Why you should vote for him:
He was obnoxious, but a winner.

Why you should not vote for him:
His role was a supporting one.


Somewhere perfectly in the middle between Randy Quaid making us laugh as Cousin Eddie and going batshit crazy and wrecking his career, he was the innocent Bowling prodigy named Ishmael. He was equal parts straight man and funny man, which is a rare accomplishment in any movie and shows the ability of how the Farrelly brothers to equally distribute comedic lines. Ishmael was a good character, but was it close to being as good as Woody Harrelson’s “Roy Munson”?
