Movie Characters Want Danger FlightEverett

It's nice to know that an undercover federal air marshal could be on your flight (contrary to popular belief, they are not on every flight), but what if your designated marshal is the one hijacking the plane? That's the premise behind "Non-Stop," in which Liam Neeson plays the armed TSA agent on a flight from New York to London who is apparently being set up by the very terrorists he's there to protect the flyers from.

Presumably, Neeson's character is the real deal and wins out in the end, proving his innocence and heroism. But if "air marshal" is at the top of your list of people you want on your flight if things go wrong, maybe add "air marshal who isn't corrupt or a terrorist" above it. Thanks to Hollywood, we have a number of other specific character types who we'd trust and hope to be on any potentially doomed plane. Check out 11 of these trusty individuals below.
