If there are considerable number of suggestions from TV, I'll add them. Right now,I'm thinking about adding only movies. :D

If there are a considerable number of suggestions from TV series, you can make a list only for TV series bodyguards, that would also be neat (:

At least a half of commentaries there were caught in the spam filter. Weird.

No, spam filter here, actually. Champions have an added ability to see what was caught there and what wasn't (and release it). It's actually rare that what I encounter in spam is actually spam, though. 

I actually don't remember anything from IMDb and/or GetSatisfaction caught in Gmail spam filters so far.

Waiting for another Luca Brasi image confirmation.
I've added a short bio for each character. I know, more words mean more errors. :P.
If someone can give a hand with mini bios for other characters it's much appreciated. :D

Are we going with superhero? I saw Mystique in the list and I don't think she had military past. The list will be limitless because everyone will have Superman.

Definitely him, JB, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0381061/mediaviewer/rm1951525888

Have you considered limiting this to only bodyguard characters? Otherwise pretty much any tough guy or girl would qualify...

I'm not really interested in TV characters right now. :/
All of these characters were bodyguards or guardians at some point of the movie. Except  for Mask  all others have no superpowers(I'll replace him). :P

You should add "movie" into your intro, or you will get more TV suggestions/questions.

Most of these have not been bodyguards, but it's your suggestion so...

Here's the final 25.

I've added non bodyguards, but could be.. characters because otherwise this could be just a traditional list.
Anyone inappropriate in the list?

I'd never done anything like it before."

Instead of:
Take your pick

May I suggest:
Who is your pick?

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal, but a poll should always have a question.

Thanks Jessica, I get your point. In a poll there's "make your choice" thing already.

Btw, what do you think about my choices?
I thought this is already a live poll. :(

It's a good list. I think it's probably best not to include TV characters; perhaps that could be another poll.

Typo in #11: ...before you go to sleep.
and #22: McClane

'Good list. 'Tough choice because I'd want someone who I could stand being around all the time, as well. I love Mathilda but I'd feel like I should be protecting her because of her age; 'maybe one of the Denzel characters.
