    Johnny, Welcome to the Home Theater Forum!
    This is an easy one. Without a doubt, it would be 'Tommy Devito' as played by Joe Pesci in GoodFellas!
    He was so friggen scary, that even I, the viewer safe at home, felt his viscouness through the screen!

    James Conway (DeNiro) from GOODFELLAS. And Tommy DeVito (Pesci) also from GOODFELLAS. It's a little too real at times. Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinne Jones) from SNATCH deserves an honorable mention just because he's a cool mofo' and an underrated actor.

    James Cagney's character in White Heat.
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
    -- Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain

    I second "Don Vito Corleone" for being a murderer with a heart, and the most shrewd of the characters.
