I was reading The Sports Guy's mailbag today and he mentioned John Lithgow and his villainous portrayal in Cliffhanger (beyond horrible if you ask me - as was his villian in Ricochet. Not a Lithgow fan)
Anyway, who was, in your opinion, the best villain ever in a movie or TV show? The guy who actually hated, who didn't overact to make you hate him but was diabolical enough to do so anyway.
In no order, here are a couple that stand out to me:
(a) Alan Rickman in Die Hard.
(b) Alfred Molina in Spiderman 2.
(c) Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs
(d) Mr. Potter in Its a Wonderful Life
