Best Bad Guy Ever

Posted: 8/6/2014 11:03 PM

Best Bad Guy Ever 


I nominate Bruce Dern.

Watching Hang em High tonight.
He also played a bad guy in The Cowboys.

He was the perfect bad guy. Kind of a smart a-- Someone you just wanted Clint or the Duke to punch the crap out of. Or shoot.

Wrong.

There's only one correct answer and it's Anton Chigurh from No Country For Old Men.

Bruce Dern and Lee Van Cleef are very good choices.
gotta give the nod to Van Cleef because of his look.

probably should be different categories? western, action, etc. noidea

Dern had a virtual monopoly on the "crazy guy" role for about 15 years straight.  But he wasn't just playing the same guy over and over.

If there was a most underated actor poll, Dern would be a contender, imho.

As for genuine bad guys, give me Malcolm McDowell.  He'd be a contender just for Clockwork Orange, but he's had other roles as a villian.  Shoot, he even played the Devil.

Darth Vader

What do I win?

Oh actors?

Gary Oldman  is one of my faves, although he plays some good guys too.

Al Pacino. off the top of my head...

Michael Corleone
Carlito 'Carlito's Way"
Tony Montana "Scarface"
Devil in "Devil's Advocate"
Ricky Roma "Glengarry Glen Ross"
Sonny "Dog Day Afternoon"


One of if not the greatest actor of our time.

Jack Nicholson needs to be considered as well.  I put him right up with Pacino.

There was no more a downright ornery and black-hearted sumbeech than Lee Marvin as Liberty Valance.  You know that if Lee Van Cleef was one of his second-banana henchman, then Marvin/Valance was one very nasty dude.

Tough to beat Anton Chighur (Bardem) and Hans Gruber (Rickman). Then there was the Pesci character in Goodfellas.
Style is substance.
