I also think Christopher John Francis Boone in the book The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon is an Aspie.

Hmmm... I think maybe "Rainman" is autistic... I'm not sure though because the traits look so subtle.

Apparently the man that "Rainman" was largely based on, Kim Peek, wasn't autistic after all.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Peek

But yes, the Rainman character in the movie showed a lot of stereotypical autistic traits, so whether Kim Peek was autistic or not is irrelevant.

Kosmo Kramer from Seinfeld. Lisa Simpson.

Only the ones that were intentionally made to be autistic. Adam off Adam, Ben off Ben X, Donald and co off MATW.

Nell from the movie "Nell" has an ASD. I think asperger's is mentioning on the film although nowadays she'd get diagnosed atypical autism.

I thought that Dr Who has Aspergers, he seemed a little unusual and showed a few traits... Maybe he could actually be, you never know?

I think Flint Lockwood from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs has some traits.

Sam Sparks his lover also has some Aspie traits if you come to think about it but she just hid it well just as most Aspie girls can fool the psychologists.

Uh... depends on which "Doctor", if you mean Matt Smith... then I won't argue. If you are talking about David Tennant, Peter Davison, or Tom Baker, then uh... no. >_<; No offense. :S Just that David Tennant has some good social skills, Peter Davison just doesn't give that Asperger's vibe, and as for Tom Baker... he is so Mysterious. I mean... he was just a bit not personal. :S He cared though. :D

Anyways I say Dale Gribble from King Of The Hill. His social skills isn't that great, he is always paranoid, his wife uses him, and uh... his obsessions. :p Also if you watch the show, you'll see what I mean. :D

Though I don't watch the show often, if you are referring to the Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan character, I would agree there are aspie like qualities.

I would also point out Star Trek's Data(NexGen), Odo (DS9), and Seven (Voyager)...maybe Spok (original).

Bartleby, from the movie of the same name. One character comments that Bartleby might have ADD, but I think he's more HFA.

The boy from American Beauty has it. You know the son of the army guy. Oh how his glazed eyes entralls me. haha. You have to see the movie to know who I am talking about. It's a decent film.

Other than that Nick Zittman from American Idol. Oh....wait!!! he was real.

Sailor Mercury from the anime series Sailor Moon might have Asperger's. Sailor Neptune from the same series might have it as well.
