Isaacs, Oldman and Rickman Among Hollywood’s 10 Most Eeeeevil Actors


Feb 19, 2010

Posted by John Admin

Moviefone have listed Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) and Alan Rickman (Severus Snape) as three of “Hollywood’s 10 Most Eeeeevil Actors.” Oldman is described as having “a fabulous filmography of bad-natured souls” for his dark portrayals of Sirius Black, Dracula and Carnegie in the recent “The Book of Eli.” Jason Isaacs’ roles in “The Patriot,” “Brotherhood” and as “Voldemort’s deliciously evil Death Eater — with awesome hair” in the Harry Potter films are highlighted as particular achievements. Finally, Alan Rickman is at number one in part for his depiction of the “slimy and seemingly traitorous” Hogwarts Potion Master.

You can find the complete list on the Moviefone website at this link.

In related news, Jason Isaacs has been chosen as Tuesday’s Connector of the Day on CNN as part of their Connect the World feature. The website gives you the opportunity to ask Isaacs a question in the comments at this link. Thanks to Celine for letting us know!

Isaacs is just the coolest (:Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Congrats to all of them!Avatar ImagetheREALGinnyWeasley says: Hahaha yay!!!!! I love them ALL sooooo much :DAvatar Imagenealiezealbie says: whooo! go jason!! he was great as captain hook as well in "peter pan"! :)Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: They are really know what they are doing when it comes to acting evil. They can portray it so realistically, so in my opinion I agree! Though I do have some doubts about Sirius, him evil?! That's like saying Voldemort was an angel!Avatar Imageclever-ravenclaw says: AAHH i love him GO ALAN =DAvatar ImageRhiannon7 says: That is Totally Awesome. I love you Sirius B, Lucious Lucius, and the Lovely Alan Rickman!Avatar ImageTheHeirOfSlytherin2 says: Good for them! No offense to him, but I never would've guessed Lucius Malfoy go one. And I'd think that Alan Rickman would've gotten that award for his protrayl of Hans Gruber in Die Hard. Don't get me wrong, he's a perfect Snape.Avatar ImageRoseLane says: Yay Snape! Mmm.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Squee for them... especially Alan! :) That list should also be about the most sexiest villians as well. LOL ;)Avatar ImageJillxoxo says: Poor Alan! As much as he protests that his career is based on villains, his Avatar ImageJillxoxo says: Poor Alan! As much as he protests that his career is based on his playing great villains, he nevers fails to make the 'best of'' lists. Avatar Imagesamarah 18 says: Congrats! I love them all. Avatar Imagerosepug says: Gary Oldman has played many evil characters. Sirius Black is not one of them. He is being recognized for his career evil roles, not his HP role. As well, Alan Rickman was excellently evil in things such as the 1991 Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, as the Sheriff of Nottingham, and Quigley Down Under as Elliott Marston. And probably other things that I haven't seen.Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: How is black evil?Avatar Imagereadhp1008 says: Only Malfoy is evil? He killed Harry. Right? both of them died in vein to save him,Avatar Imagegingerr_kat says: that's great. they're all such good actors and it takes someone who is really gifted at acting to play someone evil. snape and sirius have so many dimensions it makes them more challenging Avatar Imagegingerr_kat says: ps. i don't think snape is really evil. they all definitely have some bad qualities to them but they are not entirely evilAvatar ImageJosephine the First says: Great actors! Add Ralph Fiennes who was positively evil in Schindler's List. ~shudder~ Makes his portrayal of Voldemort as showing his nicer side.Avatar Imagesessionka says: I would add the following: Alan Rickman - "Die Hard" (Truyl evil performance) Gary Oldman - "The Professional" (I went to see it by myself, and loved it)Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Congratulations to everyone who was included! You all do a fantastic and impressive job in depicting such vile characters.Avatar ImageHBPFan says: I love all three of them, and I agree, Ralph Fiennes should have been named quite eeeeeeeevil too as Voldie!! :D Avatar ImageIceholic says: Someone didn't watch PoA 'till the end :/Avatar ImageIceholic says: Ah well, moviethingy doesn't portray Sirius as evil at all: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 9. Gary Oldman Oldman is so good at being bad, even his "good" roles are a bit on the dark side, like Harry Potter's godfather Sirius Black or Gotham police captain Jim Gordon. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now that makes more sense. Avatar ImageIceholic says: By the way, that picture of Snape cracks me up! LOLAvatar Imageleigia says: Yeah, Isaacs as the villain with the coolest hair. LOL!Avatar ImageIceholic says: No, Voldemort has the coolest h... oh wait :PAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Lol. Awesome!Avatar ImageJane_Potter says: Cool!!!Avatar ImageFifi says: Lol! But Sirius Black isn't really that evil!Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Haha that's great!! :)Avatar ImageAll Was Well says: Three terrific actors!Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Cool! They are truly amazing actors!Avatar ImageLiara says: Ohhh, I'm so proud of them!!! *bowing*Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: Congratulations to all three :) But, like has been said already ... Sirius Black is evil? I wont even start on the Snape debate lol but, I really dont understand the Sirius Is Evil thing ... It is so cool tho that they all feature in this category and, I just love the quote about Jason Isaac/Lucius's hair :DAvatar Imagesmilemichael says: That's cool! And Lucius Malfoy - Jason Isaacs does have awesome hair!Avatar Imageeamonnteh says: That's brilliant!Avatar ImageCarinaPotter says: Good for them! They deserve it!!!Avatar Imagemissdelbridge says: Awesome, love them all! But yeah, where's Ralph Fiennes?!Avatar Imagepottersocks says: haha i like the props given to his hairAvatar Imagesgreeter8888 says: I recently watched Peter Pan from 2003 with Jason Isaacs as Captain Hook and he made a fantastically evil Captain Hook as well. He does evil so well and he seems like such a nice guy. Avatar ImageLoveTomRiddle says: That's the second time I've had my name on Leaky! Haha! I can't believe I they had those types of categories! Gary and Jason really deserved it! BUT ALAN RICKMAN YOU ROCK AS A BAD GUY!Avatar Imagealicia00 says: verry coool there are very good actors tooAvatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: LOVELY!Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: SO COOL! U 3 ARE THE BESTS!!! XDAvatar ImageMalfoyDiva says: One thing that was repeated several times in the descriptions was their voices and their eyes being key to expressing their evilness; and I agree, I could listen to them read the phone book and still love them. And Jason Issac's eyes make him sooooooo irresistibly delicious. Avatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: Awesome! Congrats to them all! Hehe 'Eeeeevil' Avatar ImagePensievePerson says: Ralph Fiennes should have made the list! Not just for Voldemort, but also his role in Red Dragon! Avatar Imagehermionenluna TZS ROAR! says: alan rickman definitely deserves the #1. he is great at being evil :PAvatar Image9and3qtrs says: That's awesome. I just saw Alan Rickman in Die Hard, last week and was thinking how cruel he was in that movie. Even Oldman in the Fifth Element was quite foul.Avatar Imagehrslvr529 says: Ahhahahahaha, that's awesome!! I definitely agree, Ralph Fiennes should be on there as well! He's a terrifying Voldemort!
