    Sorry Lo. He was great, yes, but I've always liked Brian Cox a lot better. I think Cox is creepier as Lecter, but you're right, I should have included Hopkins too.

    Oh yeah, and holy cow, Paulie. I can't believe I didn't think of Darth Vader.

    The agent in the Matrix Reloaded. I forget his name.

    For a hero......hmm

    Morgan Freeman is one of my favorites. I don't think he's ever played a villian.
    So, where's the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?

    Indiana Jones is probably a Top 3 hero, eldee.

    The agent's name is Mr. Smith, Stevie. And he was a much better villain in the original Matrix than the sequel, I think. But he could turn things around in time for the third movie.

    Z, I agree with you on Brian Cox as Hannibal Lecter. He was much less of a grandstanding showboat villain. Far creepier in his silence than Hopkins' Lecter.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Yup. I would go so far as to say that Brian Cox is one of the best actors there is at playing "the creepy guy". Did any of you guys ever see L.I.E.? I almost listed his character from that movie too, but he was less villain than tragic bad man.

    Oh yeah, got to agree with all you guys that listed Dennis Hopper in Blue Velvet, too.

    He and Tim Roth were both awesome bad guys in Rob Roy, too.

    Edited to add that John Hurt was the bad guy in Rob Roy. Don't know how I coulda messed that up. I'm a knothead.

    Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen), Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Frodo (Elijah Wood): LOTR trilogy
    Karl Childers (Billy Bob Thornton): Sling Blade
    Robert Gould Shaw (Matthew Broderick) and John Rawlins (Morgan Freeman): Glory

    Baroness Rodmilla De Ghent (Angelica Houston): Ever After
    Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon) and Count Tyrone Rugen (Christopher Guest): The Princess Bride
