Talking Psych-Like Show Game

Okay so we all have those shows/movies where we see a character that reminds us of Shawn or Lassiter or one of the other Psych cast. This was also an ongoing gag in the series:

Shawn: Whoa! Look at you, buddy! You're like Vin Diesel!
Gus: That makes Jules Michelle Rodriguez and you Paul Walker.
Shawn: This is no good!
Gus: Don't worry, Shawn! You're going to be all right!
Shawn: I'm know, I'll be fine! I just really don't want to be Paul Walker! Not even for one day!
Gus: You could be Lucas Black from "Tokyo Drift", but then we wouldn't be in the movie with you.
Shawn: That's weird. I'll... I'll just be Walker.


So the way to play the game is to pick a series or movie and list off every cast member who has their parallel in the Psych universe. It can be as little one cast member or everyone! Next, list off the characteristics each character shares with a Psych person.

I'LL START!

Oh! And this thread is inherently going to have some spoilers for various shows so anyone participating should be aware of that and skip any entry containing something you don't want to be spoiled by.

Star Trek: Voyager
I love this game and I love Star Trek and I love you!

Here's my meager offering, courtesy of the Bard:

Much Ado About Nothing

Don Pedro = Chief Vick
in charge of fellow officers
Constantly dealing with everybody else's problems
Has a slightly mischievous sense of humor at times
Issues with sibling

Don John = The Chief's Sister from "There Might Be Blood" OR Chief Trout
Seems nice enough at first, but can actually be pretty evil
Inherently scary
Plotting against sibling/relatives
Might be a little insane

Benedick = Shawn
Perpetual bachelor
Basically the court jester/class clown
Sharp-witted
Womanizer
Lovable even though he can be a bit of a jerk
Very honest
Resourceful
Strong moral compass (when it comes to the big things)
Commits fully to love once he realizes that it's there
Makes lots of risqué jokes
Not born under a rhyming planet

Beatrice = Lucinda
Sharp-witted and funny
No-nonsense
Very proud
A little scornful & disdainful
Strong, independent woman
No time for men or marriage (but secretly wants something more)
Could kill you with a mere look if she wanted to
Threatened to eat a man's heart in the marketplace

Claudio = Carlton Lassiter
Strict rule-follower
General good guy
Sometimes too serious for his own good
Believes the evidence *always* (even if it might be wrong)
Prone to the occasional fit of rage
"C" name
Soldier known for his skill & courage in battle
Lightens up over time
Somehow considered a main character even though the other guy gets more love and attention

Hero = Juliet
Probably too nice for her own good
Sweet, innocent, kind, etc.
Has moments of being funny and witty, and sometimes tugging at your heartstrings, but in general, she's kind of plain and serves as the pretty window dressing/convenient plot device for everybody else
Can be a little snotty at times, but is usually unbearably good to other people
Has trouble getting a word in edgewise, but seems to have untapped potential
Virtuous and beautiful
The object of desire for several rich guys on the show
Somehow considered a main character that everybody deeply loves even though she's actually much less awesome than the other woman in the show

Dogberry = Shawn
Cannot pronounce a word correctly to save his life
Cannot use a big word correctly to save his life
Has hilarious and borderline disastrous mishaps that occur because of his misunderstandings
Somehow manages to solve the crime and save the day despite his bumbling inaccuracies
Has no real concept of how police and legal procedures work
Comic relief
Admits that he is a jerk even though he doesn't want other people to say so

Verges = Gus
The sidekick that consistently gets insulted and trampled on even though he's often right
Kind of hilarious in his own right at times

Leonato = Henry
The old guy that everybody respects and looks up to...until his kid is disgraced
Gives advice that nobody takes
Pretty much the only sane person there
Prone to occasional fits of rage regarding his kid

Antonio = Lloyd
The other old guy who only shows up every now and then
Acts creepy at a dance
Oh, yeah, and his kid factors into the show, too

Ursula = Ursula
Slightly crazy, but generally means well
Is pretty much only nice to Hero/Juliet

Margaret = McNab
Well-meaning, but always manages to mess things up
Friends with Hero/Juliet
"M" name
Only shows up every now and then

Friar = Woody
Creepy older dude who saves the day by showing people how to fake their deaths
Only shows up every now and then

This is more for future reference, but they're making a Quantum and Woody TV show (yay!). It's basically Shawn and Gus with superpowers (and they're adopted brothers to boot).

If you haven't read the comics, do yourself a favour and go look them up in your local book store or library, you won't regret it.
