Actors Who Did an Excellent Job Playing Villains

Evan Peters as Tate Langdon in American Horror Story

I will never understand why girls liked Tate from AHS. Seriously, he was a school shooter who killed 15 people and raped his girlfriends mom. I liked how the actor played the character though.

Jack Gleeson as Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones

Jack Gleeson did a phenomenal job playing Joffrey. He made the entire world hate him with this single role.

Kathy Bates as Annie Wilkes in Misery

I am still terrified of this villain. She was also based on a real life serial killer.

Ewan Rhein as Ramsay Bolton from Game of Thrones

The only person I hate more than Joffrey.

Juliette Lewis as Mallory Knox in Natural Born Killers

Her and her boyfriend were like Bonnie and Clyde but more serial killer-ish.

Sir Christoper Lee as Saruman in Lord of the Rings

No explanation needed.

Heath Ledger as the Joker

He still terrifies me. I just wish he hasn't gotten too into his role.

John Carroll Lynch as the clown from American Horror Story

Would hate to be in the same room as his character.

  • - whoever played Umbridge. 5 minutes in and it was instant, inexplicable hate. But reading the book might have also caused a bias tbh.
    - whoever plays penguin and Nygma in Gotham.

  • Tim Curry also plays good villians, but awesome take!

  • Heath Ledger's Joker HANDS DOWN!

    The worst possible if not one of the worst possible villain that anyone would have to go up against.

    I can see it all in Batman's face, all the frustrations, the anger, all the while The Joker is laughing in his face because there really isn't anything Batman has to actually threaten the Joker with.

  • Wait, Stephen King's book "Misery" was based on a real story?

    • On a real serial killer? Yes.

    • I didn't know that.

      I'd add Anthony Perkins ("Psycho"), Anthony Hopkins ("The Silence of the Lambs"), James Earl Jones ("Star Wars"), Jack Nicholson ("The Shining" AND "Batman"), Daniel Day Louis ("Gangs of New York"), Louise Fletcher ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"), Faye Dunaway ("Mommie Dearest"), Glenn Close ("Fatal Attraction") and Alan Rickman ("Die Hard"). :)

  • If you hate a GoT character more than Joffrey, there is something seriously wrong with you lol. Seriously though, if you've ever witnessed the actor off shooting he's actually a really sweet kid, it's honestly shocking.

    And I hear you on Tate Langdon. -_-

    • He is a nice guy. Sad he gets death threats. I despise Ramsay. He made Joffrey look like an amateur. If you haven't met Ramsay, you are in for a surprise.

  • I mostly agree, especially about Ramsay Bolton, I can't stand him, really good Take.

  • Jack Gleeson, Kathy Bates and Ewan Rhein were amazing

  • Christopher Lee was pretty good as a Star Wars villain too.

  • So much good shit here! Also natural born killers is sooo underrated
