Eric Campbell. He appeared in 11 films with Charlie Chaplin and always played the villain, so his ratio is 100%.

John Carradine. If not overtly evil, then definitely sinister and creepy.

John Colicos. Evil scientist, OC figure, agent of tyrannical empires, prick traitor. Has he ever played a good guy?

I will second Gary Oldman. Especially since he was such a scary crazy bad guy in Léon. Playing Commissioner Gordon does not cancel out that performance.

Funny. I think of Gary Oldman as the hero in Romeo is Bleeding. It always seems strange to see him play a villain role.

The nicest person I've ever seen Kurtwood Smith play was Forman's dad, which isn't that big of an improvement over Clarence from Robocop if you ask me.

Have any of these characters played bad guys? I mean BAD guys. Not "morally complex characters", I mean BAD GUYS. If they have, I don't know about it. But I will admit I haven't seen literally every single movie they've ever made, just the most famous ones.

Paul Newman played Sidney Mussburger in The Hudsucker Proxy, definitely a bad guy.

Reaching back in time, it has struck me before that I can't recall a single sympathetic role played by Adolphe Menjou. His roles varied from the completely villainous (Paths of Glory) to the suave but nasty lothario (Stage Door) to the silly and completely unreasonable (You Were Never Lovelier) to the slick and slimy (Roxie Hart) to the neo-Fascist (State of the Union). Perhaps in his younger days he played leading types, I've never seen any of those movies.

And a case where art imitates life, because apparently we was a thoroughly nasty man who sang like a bird against his fellow actors and others in the movie industry to the HUAC during the red scare in the early 50's. I don't think he was a very good actor either, all facade and pretty clothes.

Pacino played the Devil himself in The Devil's Advocate, Roy Cohn in Angels in America, and Shylock in The Merchant of Venice.

Well, they’ve played bad guys, but I was responding to Alpha Twit’s post, as quoted in my post. My point is that a good actor doesn’t necessarily have to be a scumbag to portray a scumbag. The specific wording is “a constant stream of selfish and destructive choices behind him,” and that made me think of several characters portrayed by the actors mentioned: Newman in The Color of Money and Nobody’s Fool, Hoffman in Midnight Cowboy and Pacino in... can’t remember now. Not bad guys, just fuck ups, usually on the road to redemption.

So, that was an off-topic detour.

For evil women: Rose McGowan, Sharon Stone and Shannen Doherty played a lot of gals you would not take home to Mama. I guess Sharon Stone was kind of heroic in Sliver, Diabolique and that western she made, but those were outliers. She has awesome "crazy eyes"!

Michael Ironside. He's played good guys or neutral, but he's also played a lot of bad guys.

Doug Hutchison. He was Eugene Tooms and stalked Nick Stokes on CSI.

Robert Ryan was usually cast as a creep, or a weirdo, or a psycho, or just a plain bad guy.

There you go. I think there are a few more. Besides Cool Hand Luke. I think he liked those kinds of roles.

And if we're just going to toss out stellar bad-guy performances, how about Ed Harris in A History of Violence? Some kind of reptilian quality. "Joe-wee" (brrr). Reminded me of a Komodo dragon.

I can only contribute a question:
Does Ray Liotta play mostly bad guys, or is that only my perception? Good looking, charming, and engaging- Ray still tends to play double crossing sleazebags in my experience. My experience is pretty limited however, so my question stands- does Mr. Liotta have a high proportion of bad guy roles (or am I basing this on defaulting to GOODFELLAS whenever I think of him)? I have seen him do TV roles where he plays himself and sort of pokes fun at his persona.

Also, if Paul Newman is going to be a bad guy – Liotta is out of the running for only attractive and charming villain even if he is eventually determined to be one himself.

Richard Widmark played countless bad guys and he always radiated cold-blooded hatred.

But given his body of work, I'm sure he played a few good-guy roles.

I don't know if Henry Hill could really be called a "bad guy role." He's a bad guy, but he's not a Bad Guy. Obviously the perception of him is skewed in his favor because he's the narrator, but he's not a malevolent presence the same way that Tommy (Joe Pesci) and to a lesser extent, Jimmy (Robert DeNiro) are.

True, and now he is just Moke like everybody else!

Yes, I suppose he falls way short of a Hannibal Lecter type.

When I think of Ray Liotta I think of the insane evil cop in Unlawful Entry. That was one of the most evil bad guys on film. Ray was fuckin scary in that.

Indeed. I love those kinda scenes where some gnarly old type who intially comes across as disarming or duffer-quaint ends up handing someone's ass to them on a plate.

Definitely not in Silent Running. But, as another poster said - mostly crazy (just like the flop Middle Age Crazy he was in with Ann Margaret).



For the greatest bad guy ratio, I give you the time-honoured Henry Silva .

Anybody mention Al Pacino yet? Bruce Dern was another of my first thoughts. I mentioned Udo Kier a couple days ago in a Thread Games thread about this topic..

Lee Marvin was headed this way once.

The rioting was an indictment of society in general + hot weather.

David Warner was also a Catholic priest in The Omen and a Federation diplomat in Star Trek V - both good guys. But yes, he's made his career playing villains.

He was a villain in a recent James Bond movie, too (playing it a bit too much like Anton C., I thought).

It's been a long time since i saw either of those movies, and I don't remember him in them. I'll take your word for it about these roles.

I notice his IMDB listing is pretty sympathetic: "Adolphe's extreme hardcore right-wing Republican politics hurt his later reputation, as he was made a scapegoat for his cooperation as a "friendly witness" at the House Un-American Activities Commission hearing during the Joseph McCarthy Red Scare era."

Some people love to whitewash history.

Mickey Rourke is a fantastic actor. I've always been saddened by the turns of his career. Sin City wasn't working at all until his character appeared and made it all fall into place. As for being a scumbag....

...as others have said its such a debatable term. If you mean seedy anti-hero or someone who commits crimes, then no...he probably has always played a sorta scumbag.

He's seedy in Angel Heart, Pope of Greenwich Village, 9 1/2 Weeks, Year of the Dragon...He's a disheveled guy, with oily hair.

Yes, a great role for him. And as Emma Thompson noted in her excellent book about the making of the film (which includes her complete, annotated Oscar-winning screenplay), she gave the character something Jane Austen hadn't - a first name, Christopher.
