That movie was a good Jim Jones story
I always enjoy proper minor villain roles, the guys who leave an indelible mark despite maybe only appearing briefly and frequently being dispatched at the end of their scene or two.
James Gandolfini in True Romance
Stephen McHattie as a perfectly hateful killer who sets the story’s events in motion in A History of Violence
Said Taghmaoui in Three Kings (more a gray area role than outright villain)
Timothy Carey in The Killing
more major roles but Lance Henriksen in Hard Target*, Near Dark, Johnny Handsome, and Stone Cold
* special shout out to Arnold Vosloo in that one too
Stephen Lang - The Hard Way, Fire Down Under, Avatar, Don't Breathe
Linda Fiorentino (The Last Seduction)
that dude always plays a complete a-hole.
John Vernon was great as Dean Wormer in Animal House.
John Saxon...the perfect bad guy.
he's often plays a shady character...great character actor.
Henry Silva. Much like John Saxon, he was one of those character actors who could reek of evil.
travolta in broken arrow
Just saw this recently:
Basil Rathbone in Captain Blood (and of course, Robin Hood!).
Travolta's played quite a few bad guys. I liked him in Swordfish, Face Off, and The Taking of Pelham 123.
he looked creepy to me since I was a youngster!
Face Off was a fun movie...John played the perfect Cage character...
that was a long drawn-out battle!
Six pages in and no mention of two of the great heavies ...William Smith (RIP) and Al Lettieri Sollozzo in The Godfather fame
Off the top of my head:
Robert J. Wilke
Daniel D. Lewis as Bill The Butcher
Peter Lorre as Hans Beckert
Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth..
And in ' Battle Field Earth'...oh, wait, that was just bad.
Mark Hamill as The Joker in the Animated DC Universe. For me, he is more memorable for that role than that of Luke Skywalker.
See the following video for the various actors who have played and voiced The Joker and compare:
That made me think of Reggie Nalder ..
.. who played a lot of baddies in his time and the scariest TV vampire..
(Fun fact - according to IMDb he was onscreen for less than 90 seconds during the 3 hour mini series)
samantha mathis was very good in that film.
