Although he can also play the good guy....Jack Nicholson, the Shining. And Harvey Keitel - the Bad Lieutenant.

If you have seen the trailers for the new Batman movie, I think Heath Ledger will go down as one of the scariest villans as the Joker!  Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now could also make the list.

Danny Trejo, mostly of Robert Rodriquez films, has to be one of the toughest looking dudes in showbiz. He's crater faced, darkly tanned, jail-house tattooed, and rip to shreds.

In For a Few Dollars More Lee Van Cleef was the good guy (one of them) just out to avenge his sister. Anthony Hopkins can put on a pretty creepy face.

Hey recon,

True, Van Cleef was a good guy in For a Few Dollars More, but they don't really reveal that until near the end. For much of the movie you're unsure of his intentions. So I figured I'd include it.

You could also make the argument that Nicholas Cage was the good guy for most of Face/Off.

What about Alan Rickman who played the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood prince of thieves, Professor Snape in Harry Potter and let's not forget one of the greatest villians of the 80's, Hans Gruber in Die Hard. I hear  he plays one of the main villians in Sweeney Todd too
