Ever search for something weird not really expecting to find anything, only to score way more hits than you ever imagined? That's what happened when we visited the Internet Movie Database and checked to see if there were ever any movie or TV characters named "Colorado." Turns out there were lots, including some in prominent movies portrayed by notable stars, and others in bizarre projects that neither we nor most other people have ever seen. Check out our ten faves below, complete with posters, IMDB summaries and more. Number 10: Carlito's Way: Rise to Power (2005)

When they are released, Rocco intermediates a heroin business with a family of the Italian Mafia leaded by Artie Badalato Sr. Carlito negotiates with the lord Leroy "Hollywood Nicky" Barnes the area where the trio could operate in his neighborhood and sooner the three friends become powerful. Later, Carlito dates and has an affair with the beautiful Leticia.

Number 9: Yellow Sky (1948)
IMDB synopsis: "A band of bank robbers on the run from a posse flee into the desert. Near death from lack of water they stumble into what appears to be a ghost town, only to discover an old prospector and his granddaughter living there.
