    I'm not too sure about HAL (a computer) or Robocop (a cyborg), but if no one complains, I'll leave 'em in. [​IMG]

    Besides, Roy Batty was technically an artificially-created human wasn't he? Argh, what a quandary...

    Three more noms and seconds for everyone who's participated thus far.

    I added to the noms list:

    Cylon Centurion (Battlestar Galactica)
    Gunslinger (Westworld)
    The Terminator (T-1000 model from Terminator 2)

    Are Robotic performances allowed?

    if so I'll nominate

    Mark Wahlberg - I'm convinced he's a real life android created by the studios. My goodness the man has only one expression that ever crossed his face & the monotone delivery of his lines is the clincher. [​IMG]

    If not then

    The Iron Giant
    C-3PO (I still can remember the name of that movie)
    Ash (Alien)

    Robotic performances? Good idea for another tournament!

    Good call on the Iron Giant!

    Dammit, what was the name of the robot maid on The Jetsons?

    now that's a blast from the past. Is this another geek check? [​IMG]

    Even though that little robot annoyed the hell out of me back when I was 11 or 12 years old I have to second such an inspired choice.

    BTW - I just watched The Two Towers EE last night. Best film of 2002. [​IMG] :p)
