12 TV Characters We’d Love to Grab A Drink With

1
Linda Belcher
Linda Belcher
FOX
The matriarch on Bob’s Burgers is an inspiration to us all and we’d love to share a bottle — or 4 — of wine with Linda. Plus “Mommy doesn’t get drunk, she just has fun,” is our new motto.

Ron Swanson

NBC
No one can out-drink Nick Offerman’s Parks and Recreation character — nor should anyone try since that would probably end in death — but he’s the perfect person to grab a nice, quiet drink with. Fair warning: he doesn't think highly of those who drink clear alcohols.

Taystee

Netflix
Is there anyone who doesn’t want to hang out with Danielle Brooks’ character on Orange Is the New Black? Taystee would be the life of the party and we’d bet she has some crazy stories up her sleeve.

Another TV character that could probably drink us under the table is Peter Dinklage’s character on Game of Thrones. Though he spends most of the time on the show plotting, we know he could cut loose and crack jokes with the best of ‘em.
5
Olivia Benson

NBC Universal Media
Although you probably wouldn’t witness Mariska Hargitay’s character on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit doing shots in a club, she’s definitely the type you’d find at a dive bar after work. And we’d love to swap stories over a few brews with her because Boss Benson is our hero.

Sterling Archer
Sterling Archer
FX
Fun fact: Archer’s bloodstream is 95 percent alcohol. In between his offensive jokes and unappealing come-ons, Archer's lead character would be a fun (if not highly dangerous) drinking buddy.

Lucille Bluth
Lucille Bluth
FOX
On Arrested Development, Jessica Walter played the matriarch of the Bluth family who almost always had a drink in her hand. For Lucille, any time of day is a good time for a drink. All aboard the day drinking train with Lucille Bluth!

Mal Reynolds
Mal Reynolds
Fox
On the canceled-too-soon series Firefly, Nathan Fillion played Captain Mal Reynolds, a war veteran and space outlaw. C’mon, it would basically be like drinking with a cowboy from the future. Count us in.
9
Joan Watson
Joan Watson
CBS Broadcasting
Sure, maybe some people would like to grab a drink with Sherlock Holmes, but we think Lucy Liu’s Joan Watson would be much more pleasant. Plus, with the stories she could tell from her time on Elementary, it would be way better than hanging with Holmes.

Raylan Givens
Raylan Givens
FX Network
He’s witty, he can handle a gun, he’s a U.S. Marshall, and he wears a cowboy hat. Timothy Olyphant’s character on Justified is everything we could ever want from a dive bar drinking buddy.
11
Olivia Pope
Olivia Pope
ABC Television Network
Another classy wine drinker — arguably even more so than Linda Belcher — is Kerry Washington’s character on Scandal. If you want to grab a drink with someone whose work stories will make your office environment feel like a walk in the park, Olivia is your girl.

Don Draper
Don Draper
AMC
Jon Hamm’s character on Mad Men is a no brainer for this list. Hell, he is this list.
