One of the best things to come out of Comic Con yesterday was from the Sherlock panel. I LOVE and ADORE Sherlock. At the panel, they played a pre-recorded clip from the actor who plays Moriarty (oh so fabulously). The best part is in the last 5 seconds:
That's one of Moriarty's iconic sayings -- "Miss me?". He is so psychotic. I was so squee-ing each time I saw it (I replayed it about 25 times) and apparently the hall at the convention, filled with hundreds of people, just ROARED.
It must be so fun to play a great villain. One of those scene-chewing you-love-to-hate-them villains. I don't mean bad guys. Bad guys are a dime a dozen, run-of-the-mill. I mean VILLAIN: a character whose evil actions or motives transcend the plot of the movie or TV show.
Some of my favorites are:
- Moriarty from Sherlock, played by Andrew Scott:
- Loki from Thor/Avengers, played by Tom Hiddleston:
- Hans Gruber, Die Hard, played by Alan Rickman:
- And to be equal opportunity, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, voiced by Pat Carroll:
- And I already did a clip yesterday of Dr. Horrible, played by Neil Patrick Harris, but here's a gif for extras:
I mean, they ENJOY it. Being bad isn't bad, it's something to embrace and revel in.
No plans for the weekend, other than the usual stuff. Now go out and be bad.
