25 Most Memorable Movie Characters of 2012

Andy Serkis as Gollum in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is filled with wonderful characters such as dwarves, orcs, elves, trolls, and wizards - but none are quite as memorable as the big-eyed, frail-bodied, jewelry-obsessed cavern dweller Gollum (Andy Serkis).

If Middle-earth had a dating service, Gollum's profile would read: "Likes dark places, eating fish and playing riddle games." He challenges Bilbo Baggins to a game of riddles - if Gollum loses, he'll show Bilbo the way out of the dark tunnels, but if he wins he "gets to eats it whole."

Gollum is tortured by his "Precious" (the One Ring) and mourns its loss after Bilbo steals it - promising to hunt the hobbit down to find it.
