Top 20 Television Characters of the Past 10 Years

Throughout the next few weeks, I thought it would be fun to talk about my favorite 20 television characters of the past 10 years. They are mostly from some great dramas, with a little comedy thrown in. There are 50 others that I could list, but these are my favorites with one thing in common: they made T.V. worth watching for the past decade. Let's do this!!

#20) Jeff Greene (Portrayed by Jeff Garlin):

One of Larry David’s few real friends on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Jeff Greene brings great situations and comedy to one of the best comedies of the last decade. He’s also one of the most sympathetic characters in modern Television; the second you hear one of his wife Susie’s violent tirades against him (“Fuck you, you carwash cunt!”), he immediately becomes likable. He also provides this show with horrific and hilarious situations for himself and Larry to get into, whether it’s his daughter Sammie’s “Judy” doll incident, or having sex with Funkhouser’s sister who had just been released from the mental institution. Above all, he’s a friend that Larry can count on no matter the uncomfortable situation.
