Wes Anderson’s Most Memorable Characters

For over 20 years, Anderson has delivered some of the most remarkable films in recent cinematic history, all inhabited by his equally amazing characters. 

With Anderson's new film, The French Dispatch, we thought we'd take a look back at some of Anderson's most noteworthy creations that have appeared in his films. 

Herman Blume

A prime example of the old adage “Money doesn't buy happiness,” the poor guy has nothing going for him, and you wholeheartedly begin to think he deserves to win just once after years of continuous disappointment in life. 

Mr. Fox

In a lot of ways, Fox embodies many of the traits of middle-aged men struggling to come to terms with their encroaching winter years. 

Royal Tenenbaum

Royal leaves behind probably the best tombstone in all of film, reading “Died tragically rescuing his family from the wreckage of a destroyed sinking battleship,” going out in Royal's signature over-the-top fashion. 

Klaus Daimler

Throughout the film, it's actively difficult to hate Klaus—his nonstop attempts to win Steve over and his hatred of being left out seeming like a small child constantly trying to get the attention of his parents.
