Once again, evil Lord Voldemort has been named among the Top 10 All-Time Best Movie Villains thanks to a new listing from Hollywood.com. The Dark Lord, portrayed by actor Ralph Fiennes, comes in fifth place on the list, but is in good company with such fellow villainous villains as Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs), Darth Vader (Star Wars), and Wicked Witch of the West (Wizard of Oz). Similar to a list we told you about a few weeks back, actor Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) joins Mr. Fiennes, as does Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), on this list of villains for their respective portrayals of characters in “Die Hard” and The “Professional.” Hollywood.com says the following of Mr. Fiennes as You-Know-Who:

Fiennes has played a few evil men in his acting career (his Nazi colonel in Schindler’s List almost made the cut), but it’s his He Who Should Not Be Named, the Dark Lord-or as I like to call him, ole Snake Face-who really stands out as the best of the baddies.

Most Villainous Line: “Astounding what a few drops of your blood will do, eh, Harry?”
