I recently caught up with writer Ross Patterson, the man responsible for the inspired profanity spewing from the mouth of Barry Bostwick in the title role of the upcoming FDR: American Badass. ("Shit goblins!" is now in heavy rotation in my household.) So naturally I was curious as to some of the movie badasses that have inspired Patterson's work. After the jump, check out his top 5 picks.
Ross Patterson told me that aside from FDR himself, his top 5 movies badasses are: "1.) Patrick Swayze - Road House 2.) Sly Stallone - Rocky 4 3.) Val Kilmer - Tombstone 4.) Will Forte - MacGruber and 5.) Tommy Wiseau - The Room."
