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!

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!

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.

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.

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

ps. i don’t think snape is really evil. they all definitely have some bad qualities to them but they are not entirely evil

Great actors! Add Ralph Fiennes who was positively evil in Schindler’s List. shudder Makes his portrayal of Voldemort as showing his nicer side.
