mooseyfate: pute kisses like a man: spenn_diesel: but i don't really look at edmund exley as a "badass" per se. cut throat and career minded, sure, but not exactly someone that i woulnd't think i could take in a fight.granted, not originally much of a badass, but later you realize he's also prepared to take a stand against an entrenched corruption within the police force, and he was able to take out a dozen or so cop-assassins coming to kill him with just one other guy. maybe not hardcore badass, but certainly resilient and capable. and stubborn/principled enough not to be pushed over by the most dangerous of all corruption rackets.And take off those damn glasses./I think I may watch LA Confidential again tonight
orclover: 2. Angela Lansbury, The Manchurian Candidate (1962)My favorite quote from the movie:Mrs. Iselin: I know you will never entirely comprehend this, Raymond, but you must believe I did not know it would be you. I served them. I fought for them. I'm on the point of winning for them the greatest foothold they would ever have in this country. And they paid me back by taking your soul away from you. I told them to build me an assassin. I wanted a killer from a world filled with killers and they chose you because they thought it would bind me closer to them.[Puts her hands on Raymond's face]Mrs. Iselin: But now, we have come almost to the end. One last step. And then when I take power, they will be pulled down and ground into dirt for what they did to you. And what they did in so contemptuously underestimating me.I love this part in the movie, this pivotal moment. You realize the commies have really REALLY farked up bad with their plans. Even if they win, their agent is going to use her power to royally fark them with America's power for what they did. They destroyed her son, and are about to give her the nuclear launch codes. Whoever thought out this plan really needs to be fired. Also missing from the list: [4.bp.blogspot.com image 178x320]
Dwight_Yeast: Sybarite: Yeah, Brooks was really good as a brutal character in Drive.He was really good in that.And as poor as I thought the season was, over all, John Lithgow was excellent and creepy as a serial killer on Dexter.
FishyFred: Nobody from Drive belongs on that list. Nobody.
broncoitis: Ellen Page in "Hard Candy"
Richard Roma: What about Bill Murray as a loan shark in Mad Dog and Glory? He beats the crap out of a nebbish, similarly against-type Robert De Niro.
Oldiron_79: John Travolta as Vince in Pulp Fiction.
you have pee hands: Actually I have no idea what characters this guy normally plays, but he doesn't seem like the badass type.
El Morro: Bryan Cranston was a great call. He's about as far from his "Malcolm in the Middle" character as it gets. Not only that, but he plays Walter White just SO perfectly.
Satanic_Hamster: Hmmm. Let's go with:[upload.wikimedia.org image 432x243]
Last Man on Earth: Satanic_Hamster: Hmmm. Let's go with:[upload.wikimedia.org image 432x243]Not a villain-style badass, but you can't possibly mention unexpected badass actors from B5 without this scene:LinkThat whole scene, all I could think was "God DAMN, Flounder grew a pair as big as boats!"
weiner dog: Michael Palin as Jack Lint.
LonMead: A couple of faves of mine from Walter Matthau: as the coldly logical Groeteschele in Fail-Safe, and as the title character in Charley Varrick, where after a bank robbery he proceeds to set up just about everyone so he can get away.

pute kisses like a man: / that's just to name a few... so, I don't think it's a surprise to see guy pearce in a badass role.
