You know the old saying. "Where's a Mail Man when you need one"
Oops wrong uniform! Movies and TV Shows have lots of Mail Men roles. Rain, snow, or sleet, they shine. Who is your favorite Mail Man? Or Fowl!

Pechkin the Mailman from Troe iz Prostokvashino (1978) (quite possibly the most recognizable pop culture image of postman in Post-Soviet countries)

I had an old poll on this subject, which was removed in the great purge of character pages.

Apart from those you already have, some of the leading vote getters were

Stan Lee as Willie Lumpkin in Fantastic Four

and

Newman from Seinfeld:

Nikolay:
I'm from Germany. We have a very restrictive controlling system, that is based on FSK (FSK 0, 6, 12, 16 and 18). That movies can openly be advertised and sold in public. But when the BPjM examines a movie, it can be placed on two special indexes.

List A: Not allowed to advertise, but can be sold "under the table, silent, legal".
List B: Confiscated. No advertising, no property of it.

So sometimes movie companies cut the movie to get them allowed FSK18.
In 'I Spit on Your Grave' (FSK18, 2010) is 94 minutes in G, on IMDb it's running time is about 98 minutes.

When a movie gets the FSK18-seal, it can't be set on the index later. It stays FSK18, but later the same version can be FSK16.

'Evil Dead' (1981) was on the index for over two decades. It was available in a FSK18 version that was cut more then ten minutes. Now the uncut movie is FSK16. ... as time goes by ...

If you want to know wich movies in Germany are on the index, just go to this site:
https://www.schnittberichte.com

(Schnittberichte = translated: Cut-reports, German language)

P.S.:
'Blade' is on list A. They tried to put it from the index by a new hearing in 2011 and 2012, but the BPjM didn't move from their p.o.v. The named reason is, that the movie brutalizes the audience. (because of the shown violence)

BPjM = Bundeprüfstelle für jugendgefährdende Medien
FSK = Freiwillige Selbst-Kontrolle (der Filmwirtschaft)

I do not see how "P.C." is related.

Related is a relative thing that happens at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Relativity is related in rhyme to Nativity, which is seasonal issue which is related to this time of the year which is wonderful. That begs the question, why is there no wonderempty?

By the way ... 'Blade' is wiped from the index now. (End of January 2019)
In Germany the uncut version of 'Blade' is now available as FSK18. A lesser
brutalizing version is available as FSK16 Version.

I encourage you to reconsider the guy from Il Postino. I remember he died right after finishing the movie and it was kind of a big deal. He needed a heart transplant but he put it off until after the film because he said he loved it so much he had to do it with his old heart. He thought it wouldn't feel the same with a new heart. He was nominated as best actor and the movie was nominated for best film.

It's in
I don't know it this will ever be a poll.
I hope it is though. A lot of people worked hard to come up with suggestions.
Thanks for your input. You have stuck by me.
I appreciate that.

That's my benefit to only have seen him in German dub. He didn't sound like JarJar Binks, more like a very simple mind, trying to obviously brag with wisdom nobody needs. It wasn't the pure language, more what he said. Cliffy is the simple you can laugh about in a positive way, with positive vibes about him when he takes himself to serious.
