Billy Brown

In Buffalo ’66, Billy Brown (Vincent Gallo) is finally released from prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Sensibly, the first thing he does when he gets out is kidnap a tap dancer named Layla and “span time” with her at the bowling alley.

Jesus Quintana

If you have to go against someone in bowling it might as well be Jesus “The Jesus” Quintana. His choice of jumpsuits and bowling ball shining skills make him, at the very least, an entertaining opponent. Not to mention his off the wall insults and sweet dance moves leave you wondering what he’s doing when he’s not bowling.

Ernie McCracken

Ernie McCracken

In Kingpin, Bill Murray plays Ernie “Big Ern” McCracken, a professional bowler who’ll backstab anyone to get ahead including bowling prodigy Roy Munson. That rose bowling ball is his gravy train with biscuit wheels.

Jeffrey Lebowski

Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski

Jeffrey Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), or as he would prefer to be called, the Dude, is an avid bowler and otherwise total slacker. He gets caught up in a kidnapping scheme after getting confused with millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski. That sweater really ties the outfit together, Dude.

Walter Sobchak

Walter Sobchak

It’s hard to decide whether you want Walter on your side or if you want to stay away from him. With his military vest and random weapons, Walter is ready to go to war over anything. He’ll even take you out over a game of bowling.
