Steve Martin

ROLE: George Banks
MOVIE: Father of the Bride (1991)
WHY WE LOVE HIM: Banks' difficulty letting go of his daughter (played by Kimberley Williams-Paisley) on the eve of her wedding speaks to how entrenched he is as a father: their bond means so much that he's about as inclined to "share" her with her fiance as a toddler in the sandbox with a new toy. In this remake's Spencer Tracy role, Steve Martin is warm and sympathetic as a patriarch who treasures every memory of his little girl and grieves how fast she grew up.
