Walter Skinner, "The X-Files" (1993): In the annals of management history, Fox Mulder would have to be the least appealing employee possible. The consistently insubordinate special agent was the charge of one Walter Skinner, a tough-as-nails boss who was forever frustrated by talk of aliens, conspiracies and cover-ups. Actor Mitch Pileggi did bring a bit of a softer side to the bespectacled bureau man, especially when dealing with the level-headed Dana Scully. More often, though, Skinner could be seen whipping off his glasses and taking someone (usually Mulder) to task for breaking FBI protocol. (Michael Lavine / Fox)
