It seems Albert Camus was actually the first to describe a character displaying what would later become known as Asperger's syndrome in his novel The Stranger (which was based on a friend of his).

You can read more about that here:

One movie character I could always relate to was Billy Bob Thornton's character in The Man Who Wasn't There. I wonder if that is another character with aspie traits?
