Walter White, Breaking Bad
Played by: Bryan Cranston
You have to remember where he started: A sadsack high chemistry teacher who was given a terminal lung cancer diagnosis. But in attempting to leave behind a nest egg for his family, Walter White morphed into a frightening crystal meth kingpin, and every batch was laced with lies and/or murder. —Dan Snierson
