While Charlie’s Angels are arguably the most iconic in both television and cinematic history, every genre has seen trios that have created long-lasting legacies over the years. Some of the earliest in the comedic genre include The Hanson Brothers from Slap Shot; Larry Fine, Curly and Moe Howard from The Three Stooges; Groucho, Harpo and Chico from The Marx Brothers; Lucky (Steve Martin), Dusty (Chevy Chase) and Ned (Martin Short) from Three Amigos; and Ferris (Matthew Broderick), Cameron (Alan Ruck) and Sloane (Mia Sara) from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Even the contemporary comedic genre has seen the grouping of already iconic trios, from Phil (Bradley Cooper), Phil (Zach Galifianakis) and Stu in The Hangover to Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day) in Horrible Bosses to Dale (Seth Rogen), Saul (James Franco) and Red (Danny McBride) in Pineapple Express. However, arguably the most iconic in the past 20 years of comedy is The Dude (Jeff Bridges), Walter (John Goodman) and Donny (Steve Buscemi) from The Big Lebowski.
The action franchise has seen everything from the formidable T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger), Sarah (Linda Hamilton) and John Connor (Edward Furlong) from Terminator 2: Judgement Day; Neo (Keanu Reeves), Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) from The Matrix franchise; Athos (Kiefer Sutherland), Porthos (Oliver Platt) and Aramis (Charlie Sheen) from The Three Musketeers; and Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) from The Lord of the Rings franchise.
Even the dramatic genre has seen some iconic trios including Jimmy (Robert De Niro), Henry (Ray Liotta) and Tommy (Joe Pesci) from Goodfellas; Brody (Roy Scheider), Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and Quint (Robert Shaw) from Jaws; Judy (Jane Fonda), Violet (Lily Tomlin) and Doralee (Dolly Parton) from 9 to 5; and Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) from the Twilight franchise.
