Puss in Boots ("Shrek 2," "Shrek the Third")
Anyone who owns an orange tabby knows they are special. The marmalade felines just have that extra dose of cleverness and quirkiness that makes them stand out in the litter. And the Spanish heartthrob captures that essence perfectly as the swashbuckling Puss in Boots. And that voice! Banderas turns on the charm, utilizing deep, sexy tones as the womanizing feline who utters such lines as "I'm Puss . . . in Boots" with the aplomb of a Charles Boyer and Sean Connery rolled up into one. He even manages a great purr and a hairball cough. Banderas told The Times in 2004 that Puss actually "thinks he's Zorro . . . that's what produces the comedy with him."
