Michael Ironside

William Zabka

My two favorites, I think.

Michael Biehn was a convincing nut job in The Abyss.

Michael Madsen has played a few memorable villains,

Also James Russo (usually gangsters)

Tim Roth

All the villains from the Karate Kid series, except for the Hilary Swank one, are iconic for me.


Martin Kove as John Kreese


Yuji Okumoto as Chozen


The late Danny Kamekona as Sato


Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver


Sean Kanan as Mike Barnes

Does anyone remember this dude - he's like a walking comic book character (out of an Alex Ross graphic novel) with those infamous jaw/cheekbones:

ROBERT Z'DAR

Don't forget his similar appearance in Just One of the Guys.

I always got him confused with the somewhat beefier Michael Bowen from Valley Girl and Private Resort, among others.

Craig Bierko in The Long Kiss Goodnight: absolutely fucking hilarious (check my signature for proof).

Also, William Sadler. We need more of him in movies (heard he was in The Mist).

Agreed on:

Rutger Hauer

Brion "I'll tell you about my mother" James (sadly died)

John Glover (52 Pick-Up is such an underrated movie, and he damn near murders Roy Scheider's presence with his)

Kurtwood Smith ("Well, give the man a hand!")

Ronny Cox ("I think you better do what he says, Mr. Kinney)

But we all know who is sorely missing from this discussion.

Gary. F'N. Busey.

I rest my case.

How about Anne Ramsey?

I believe the guy The Bus is thinking of is indeed Robert Davi, who was in The Goonies with Ramsey.

He came to mind pretty quickly. Also, I look at him and remember him as the racist dad on Diff'rent Strokes.

Another vote for Michael Wincott. Loved him as Top Dollar.

I also thought Stephen Dorff made a great villain in Blade.
