    He has such a magnetic presence. The apartment scene in Pulp Fiction is one of my favorite scenes of any movie ever.

    The weirdest decision of the Star Wars prequels is to take an actor known for loud, commanding performances and have him sit in a chair and do basically nothing.

    Too many classic performances to count at this point. Pulp Fiction, Unbreakable, and The Hateful Eight are three of my favorites of his.

    Such an amazing actor. The ending scene in Pulp Fiction is incredible.

    Snakes on a Plane only works because of him going 200%.

    So good that Ultimate Marvel essentially modelled their Nick Fury after him years before he was cast haha

    the villain he played in kingsman is among the most i’ve enjoyed him as a screen presence. he was clearly having the time of his life playing valentine

    More of a fan of his early work, by which I mean the time he helped hold the board of a college hostage as part of a black power movement demonstration

    Always do the right thing. Supporter

    Obviously his works with Spike Lee and Tarantino have a pretty solid hit ratio. He's been in so much stuff it's almost tiring to think about

    Die Hard 3 is a top performance of his.

    he campaigned to be in the prequels because he was a die hard fan as a guy in his early 30s of the original trilogy

    What’s the most out of character he’s ever been?

    I remember his performance in that 187 movie being very subdued for a lot of it until the end
  21. Morrissey


    Are you implying that the man himself is a character?
  22. Marx&Recreation


    ? no, just that he pretty much always plays the same kind of person.

    make a bagel without the hole

    It wasn’t a good movie but he was great in it and literally the only thing I remember about Lakeview Terrace. Went 2000% in that role (as expected) and it’s frightening and almost hard to watch at times just by his presence, facial features and tone.

    Mr. Glass from Unbreakable was a bit different than his usual
