The Top Ten

1 Gary Oldman Gary Oldman Gary Leonard Oldman is an English actor, filmmaker, musician and author. Renowned for his "big" acting style, Oldman is one of the most celebrated thespians of his generation, with a diverse career encompassing theatre, film and television.

Gary Oldman is legend no matter what he does, but there's no doubt that his most memorable roles involve villainy. I mean, his Stansfield in "Leon": absolutely chilling! He certainly has an affinity for the bazaar, sadistic, and the just plain creepy.

True Romance. (Drug Dealer With Dreadlocks) The Professional. (Corrupt Cop) Air Force One. The Fifth Element. (Leon) Murder In The First. (The Warden) JFK (Lee Harvey Oswald) Drakula. Air Force One. State of Grace. Lost In Space.

Gary Oldman has played some of the greatest villains ever, Stanfield from "Leon", Dracula from "Bram Stroker's Dracula, Russian guy with long name from "Air Force 1".

2 Alan Rickman Alan Rickman Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman (February 21st 1946 - Janurary 14th 2016) was an English actor and director known for playing a variety of roles on stage and screen, most notably Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series and Hans Gruber in Die Hard. He passed away of pancreatic cancer in 2016

Alan Rickman had a way of making any evil character believable, or any character at all for that matter. He was at his best when playing the villain.

He simply became the villain, and with that voice, nobody could do it better. He is missed.
