Cohen, best known as Chunk from The Goonies, emailed that he was "honored" his big scene made #42 on the list — when his pudgy character nearly crapped himself face-to-face with the frightening Jake Fratelli (Robert Davi) and desperately mumbles a Jewish prayer.
The prayer was actually Cohen ad-libbing. "I forget the original line, but that bit was actually improvised," Cohen wrote. "Which makes the distinction all the sweeter. See, kids? Hebrew school does pay off."
