Also, for anyone who likes Dexter, John Lithgow as the Trinity Killer was absolutely amazing!!!!!

I have to agree. IMO Deadwood is without a doubt the greatest series in television history.

Gerald McRaney as George Hearst earns an honorable mention for villainy.


i've watched the series about 6 or 7 times now, and i 'get' more each time, like i notice a new joke, or learn to appreciate some trait about a character, etc. it's like a yearly tradition of mine to watch it over the span of a month or so.

it's an incredibly rich and rewarding show, especially when compared to the likes of breaking bad, or prison break, 24, or something like that.

I'm a huge Deadwood fan myself. I actually don't see Al as much of a villain, although he certainly is ruthless and sometimes, downright cold-blooded. The episode where he has to select a stand-in prostitute to die in Trixie's stead is a good example...

I agree with Kryten. Tolliver and even to a greater extent, George Hearst are far more villainous, IMO. For instance, when Odell showed up in Deadwood and started dealing with Hearst, you just knew it would only be a matter of time before GH had him killed...
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I know Tom Cruise is a bit of a wingnut with the scientology and all that, but I thought he was amazing as the hitman in Collateral.

EDIT: all the videos have language and violence, so just some forewarning.

You fool, clearly this was his best performance.

:P

Personally, my favourite was this one:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_svnsF5OLbI

That whole scene was one of the best ever. I wish I could find the full bit from start to finish, but this is the end after Walken's speech about Scicilian's being the best liars.

Still my favourite movie, with Walken, Oldman and Gandolfini as easily hateable villains.

Pete Postlethwaite as Sgt. Hakeswell, he was so good that Bernard Cornwell, author of the Sharpe novels altered the character in subsequent novles to reflect Postlethwaite's performance.

I do not watch a lot of television but i do like deadwood mostly for the dialogue , kinda like a shakespearean western .
IMO by far the best TV series ever made is The Wire ,most of the players have character flaws , and i consider the Omar [Micheal K Williams] the best good/bad guy ever to grace the screen , can you feel me .
