      Noah Wyle's Librarian in The Librarian series. Rose McGowan in Planet Terror.. she may not be a "hero" but her Cherry with the automatic calibre is, by far, the best version of wimp turned hero.

      Surely Richard Pryor is the blind man and Gene Wilder is his deaf store keeper.

      Jack Burton in 'Big Trouble In Little China', the man thinks he's the hero, too dumb to realise he's actually the cowardly sidekick! Genius. I think you could make a case for Han Solo too, bit of a coward, or a maybe he's just 'survival centred' Robert Downey Jr in 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' Owen Wilson in 'Shanghai Noon'

      Peter Weller as Alex Murphy... really? Take on a gang of violent crims on your first day with no SWAT back-up? Rookie mistake!
