Mads Mikkelsen made it his own in the tv series... different than the Hopkins Lecter, but better imo. He did get more time to perfect it though with 3 seasons.
Yeah, Mikkelsen was excellent.
Marlo and Stringer Bell (who were pretty much the same character from different generations- The Wire repeated that pattern with multiple character pairs)
I thought stringer and marlo were polls apart.
Brother Mouzone was pretty badass for a guy in a bow-tie...
I hated brother, thought he was a cartoonish character in a show that prided itself in realism. But apperently in the 80s and 90s there were quite a few killers and intimidation men from the nation of islam getting around in their bow-ties in the drug trade of new york and baltimore
Siegfried and Starker in Get Smart.
Agree. De Niro gives me the creeps every time I see Cape fear.
De Nero apparently paid a dentist to have his teeth ground down and deformed for the role. Then paid another dentist to have his teeth restored. Now thats taking method acting to another level.
The rogue planet in Melancholia.
These days, he just phones performances in.
Servalan in Blake's 7.
Two from Eastwood flicks have to be right up there.
Scorpio from the original Dirty Harry.
And the Chick from Play Misty for me.
Both excellent acting performances and A grade psychotics.
One noteable absence worth mentioning....Javier Bardem's character in No Country for Old Men. He has to be in the top 3 of all time. A simply mad, killing machine........even Woody from Cheers couldn't stop him
Nice link of "do you feel lucky" between Scorpio & Anton Chigurh
Theodore Bagwell (Prison Break)
Tim Curry was brilliant as Pennywise.
Terence Stamp as Zod.
Mick Taylor from Wolf Creek (and the sequel).
Both mentioned, Hopkins as Lecter and Rickman as Gruber are classics.
Ralph Fiennes as Amon Goth in Schindler's List. Even looked like him, and scared the bejesus out of a survivor from the camp.
