Kurt Russell has said that he feels Snake Plissken is the most iconic character he has ever played.  Back in 2013 he did a rare Q&A session where he said the following:

“I have to say that every once in a while you get the opportunity to do something you really want to do. I didn’t feel that way about Elvis [the movie on which he first met director John Carpenter], but I knew it was a wonderful opportunity and I knew I could do it. I was cast in that project before John was brought on board. That’s where we met. We learned a language very quickly with each other. I went away to Australia and came back, and we did say, ‘Let’s do this again, but with something that’s completely ours.’ I came back from Australia and I said, ‘I know what I’d like to do with you.’ And he said, ‘I got that. It’s really cool. It’s slightly futuristic.’ So I read it, and I said, ‘This is exactly what I want to do. It’s something that I know I can do that I know nobody is going to think of me for except for you, John.’ They wanted Charlie Bronson to do it, and John fought for me. A couple of times in my life, I’ve gotten to read something – Tombstone was like that – and I just said, ‘I’d love to do this.’”
