Notice how there are certain actors that always seem to be the bad guy? Some actors seem to put on their best performances in the role of the villain. Who are some of your favourite Bad Guy performances?


Tim Roth was brilliant as Archibald Cunningham in Rob Roy

I've always liked Gene Hackman's roles more when he was the villain.

He plays 'the bad guy' so well.

Agree on Heath Ledger (Batman) and Deniro (Cape Fear), both are excellent Villains... Heath played the best joker of all time in my humble opinion. Truly brought out the evil of the joker, the dark evil.

That said, I have a soft spot for Ricardo Montalban as Khan.

Robert Englund did an admirable job playing Freddy all those years.

Tony Todd, as Candyman .... What a perfect villain voice.

I am also shocked that nobody has mentioned Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter yet... frickin' crazy good.


But for me, call me crazy, but Ricardo Montalban as Khan..... best movie Villain ever.

Yes .. I watched it when young, yet DeNiro made it so intense that I still canna watch it without all the lights on .. :)

Gary Oldman, although he does well at most roles. Mostly for Drexl Spivey, that movie was great.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis
