If you could be a movie or television villain, which one would you be? Why?

Asked by AstroChuck (37373points) September 4th, 2008

Movie villain – Darth Vader from Star Wars. He’s such a badass that he even has his own theme music. No one comes even close. Oh, the things I could do with the force. The dark side rules!

Television villain – Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows (the original series, in glorious black and white). Coolest vampire on any screen, big or small. I would love to be him.

Honorable Mention – The Joker from The Dark Knight. Heath Ledger made me root for him to defeat Batman. I think I could pull it off. I would welcome that challenge.

Castor Troy, played by Nicolas Cage.
Isn’t this religious, ah yes. The eternal battle between good and evil, saint and sinners… but you are still not having fun.

Max Von Sydow as “Joubert,” Three Days of the Condor.

Arguably the most menacing, scary “hit man” portrayals ever.

I would be Greenlee Smythe (though she hasn’t been much of a villain lately) from All My Children. She’s gorgeous, she’s a bazillionaire, and she’s got two hunks-a-men fighting over her.

And movies… hmm… I would really need to think about that one.

agent smith from the matrix ‘cause he’s agent smith

and from tv

The Dad on arrested development Cause in the end he was just an ass.

I second Vader

And from TV I will have to say Syler. He is a complete psycho. But I’m guessing if I was evil I would not have normal values either.

Lex Luther. He’s an evil genius and very, very rich.

Television – Joker or Scarecrow from Batman the animated series.
Movie – Joker or Scarecrow from… well from either of the Batman movies for Joker and the only one for Scarecrow would be Batman Begins.

I like my villains kinda crazy.

“Q” from Star Trek:TNG. He’s funny and his powers are more or less unlimited.

And Phoenix from X-men: The Last Stand. With telekinesis like that, who needs any other power.

I want to do great things, you know? I want to be an achiever, like Bad Horse.

@charybdys- “Q* is a great one! Just think of what mischief I could cause. To be immortal and have unlimited power too. I could play god!

poofandmook's avatar

@char: I don’t know how I could’ve named my dad’s cat Q and not remembered him with this question!

AstroChuck's avatar

So far my vote for the best TV villain to be goes to “Q”. Still sticking with Vader for movie villain, tho’.

charybdys's avatar

@Astro- that’s not quite playing god anymore. Much closer to the idea of actually being god than playing.

For movie, O-ren Ishi from Kill Bill.

Honorable mention to Brad Dourif as a posessed inmate in Exorcist III. The scene where George C. Scott comes to his cell is disturbingly dark. He is amazing. You might also remember him as Billy from One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

As for me, I’d go with the Brad Pitt character in Fight Club. He just really seems to enjoy his work.

Mystique from X-men. There’s the shape-shifting and that cool naked blue look, too. And she can break a guy’s neck with her feet. All that and the quick healing makes for a lot of possibilities.

@jax; Lol, Castor Troy! Horrible movie, great character. Nice pick!

Jax's avatar

@trumi, Yes the movie sucks. I mean they could have done so much more, especially the mental aspect of being in someone’s body in a way. That’s sadly an untouched subject in this movie. But still Castor Troy is a great villain, narcissist, violent, no conciousness, and indulged with every good bad thing, drugs, sex, firearms…
