Limiting Clint Eastwood's greatest roles to a mere ten films is a damn near Sisyphean task. Over 55 years of movie-making, the steely-eyed actor/director has created so many indelible characters, it's hard to imagine them all coming from the same mortal man.

With the release of the supernatural thriller 'Hereafter,' it's a good time to look back on some of Eastwood's most memorable characters. We did have two rules: Only one movie could be considered per series -- hence the omission of 'A Fistful Of Dollars,' 'Magnum Force' and the like -- and films directed by, but not starring, Eastwood were discounted ('Bird,' 'Mystic River,' etc.). The debate begins ... now.
