    Ok, So first post on the forum and i think the best one to begin with. What role do you think is Dennis Haysberts Best. I think it is between Jonas Blane(The Unit) and David Palmer(24).

    Jonas and Palmer have alot of qualities that are much the same, they are loyal and they dont bend to nobodys will. They are tough and dont let pain or pressure stop them on there mission. What do you guys think?

    I've actually never seen 24 *cowers in anticipation of the Gibbs-slap* but I love his role in The Unit. Jonas is the glue that holds the team, and the show, together.

    *Goes for a Gibbs Head Slap Gibbs pats you on the shoulder instead* Oh how much you have missed.

    And your so right, Jonas was such a good charater for Dennis to play. He is just right with his towering form and massive physique.

    Not to mention his voice! That deep tone can either be booming, or so low that you have to listen very intently to hear what's being said. When he's angry either one is just as effective. It's a very well written and complex character.

    I would have to agree in saying the Jonas Blaine is my favorite role that Dennis Haysbert plays. He just controls so much authority and leads his team to complete their missions. His voice is awesome and his acting is great too.

    I wish he would just come over to play a role in NCIS...it would be so cool

    He had a great role in 24, though I never watched the thing...

    He was great in 24. But he was also great in Major League.
