Tallahassee

In Zombieland, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) is a survivor of the “mad person disease” epidemic who is especially violent in killing zombies. His real name is unknown, as survivors refer to each other only by their hometowns in this apocalyptic world.

Rae Doole from Black Snake Moan

In Black Snake Moan, Christina Ricci plays Rae Doole, a nymphomaniac held captive by a religious farmer who’s set on curing her of her sinful ways. As you might expect, she spends most of her time scantily clad in little more than chains, but she eventually trades them in for an old fashioned dress.

Pennsatucky

Pennsatucky

In Orange is the New Black, Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett (Taryn Manning) is a bible-thumper convicted of murder and locked up in Litchfield Prison. She has rotten teeth from years of meth abuse, but she did clean up nicely for the Christmas pageant.

Merle Dixon

Merle Dixon

Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) is Daryl’s charismatic, rough-around-the-edges older brother in The Walking Dead. He’s quick to antagonize others, which costs him a hand, but he finds a solution for that.

Hillbilly Jim

Hillbilly Jim

A character like Hillbilly Jim is perfect for a sport whose fans are believed to be predominantly “rednecks.” A popular wrestler of the ’80s, the loveable Hillbilly Jim fits the stereotype well in his bib overalls and horseshoe necklace. Of course, we all know this misconception isn’t true. Lots of intelligent, well-rounded individuals love professional wrestling. We should be more concerned about the people wearing bib overalls who don’t like professional wrestling.
