Character of the Week: Staff Sgt. Dignam

While I am generally not into this type of movie, I absolutely loved The Departed. It was funny and cool, and absolutely unpredictable. My favorite thing about the movie was Mark Wahlberg as Dignam. He's a complete asshole, but has the best lines in the whole movie, and earned Wahlberg a well deserved Oscar nomination. I found a really good "best of" video of Dignam, but unfortunately its pretty poor quality, and I couldn't embed it, but if you click on the link it will take you to Youtube...

Also...he's the one who gets justice at the end. No big speech...no "you killed Queenan," he just shoots Sullivan right when he walks in the door...fantastic!
