He's best known for the evil characters he has played. Gary Oldman sure is the master of portraying crazy and memorable villains. Here are my 5 favourites;
• Norman Stansfield (Leon) Loves classical music and hates it when his suit gets ruined. Pill-popping Stan is quiet and calculating one minute and exploding with rage the next. Unpredictable and unstable, he may be an evil, murdering, corrupt cop but he is a joy to watch.
• Ivan Korshunov (Air Force One) A Russian hi-jacker who bites off more than he can chew when he tries to mess with the President of the United States (action hero Harrison Ford). He believes in the cause he is fighting for and is willing to give up everything, a dangerous man to be up against.
• Dracula/ Vlad (Bram Stoker's Dracula) I prefer to think of him as the hero of the film, although being a bloodthirsty undead monster does place him in the bad guy category. Gary's brilliant performance as the doomed vampire makes this film worth watching and makes up for Keanu Reeves' awful English accent.
