Ben Kingsley in Sexy beast isn’t charged with super powers or physical prowess. But he embodies the ‘cut you as soon as look at you’ aggressive willfulness of an old school villain rather well.


Gary Oldman (in Leon) captures a rather cavalier insanity (All be it rather comic strip)

I reckon he’d have made a perfect casting as The Patrician in any Discworld films too.

He’s my favourite by far, wonderful performance.

Scaramanga was the other absolute classic of a bond villain, unsurprisingly given it was Christopher Lee. But there’s something just so wonderfully chilling about Drax as a bad guy.

I can’t get past Lovejoy here - even in American Gods I still expect Tinker to be not too far out of shot.

Just the right amount of sweary for this place though.
