Everything about playing a villain is appealing to me.
It's interesting sometimes when an audience can empathize with a villain.
In the summer after sixth grade, I took a class at St. Robert Bellarmine. My first role, I was the villain in a play, and I forgot all my lines. I think I cried my way through the performance.
My favorite movie villain? Oh, that's easy. Hannibal Lecter.
I don't think playing a villain is my greatest talent.
The other thing is we have an incredible villain. And we worked very hard to have villains that are connected to the hero. They have an effect, an emotional effect. They never become out-of-this-world, crazy villains.
As a kid, you either wanted to play Bond or a Bond villain.

I can go anywhere in the world and I am known; it put me on the international map.
I think everybody likes to play the villain. They're always much more interesting characters.

I was playing the villain 'Falseface' on Batman, and I got wind that they were going to pay a young starlet $25,000 to be in the same episode. Well, I wasn't getting anywhere near that amount of money, so I refused to let them put my name in the credits.
I've always wanted to play the villain. But the young girl is never the villain.
The great thing I like about the sci-fi genre is there's a lot of different latitude for a lot of different kinds of behavior. You can be a very larger-than-life villain, or a very naturalistic villain, and all of it seems to fit.
The only way to describe my involvement in 'Planes' is that it's an absolute dream come true for me. Getting to be a bad guy in any project is fun, let alone being a Disney villain. I can't imagine anything getting better than that!
Roger Craig Smith
I try to do different things. My main goal is to choose roles where I won't repeat myself or where I will not be doing the same role over and over. I try to do a villain, the best friend to the lead, and then a lead. I try to vary it up because if I don't, I will get bored.
It's so fun to play a villain. I get to tap into a side of myself I thought I never had.
Audiences just naturally hate me on screen. I could play a role in a tuxedo, and people would think I was rotten. You can do much more with a villain part.
Lee Van Cleef
I'd love to play a villain in a movie, the kind of bad guy you would never think of me being able to play. Like most people, I have a darker side I'd like to explore onscreen.
I'll tell you the secret. When you begin with a character, you want to begin by creating a villain.
After my wife and I were married, we obtained a rescue dog from a family that didn't want her anymore. She was a beautiful Collie/Shepherd mix named 'Precious.' It then came to pass that our first marital 'debate' was whether we should change the dog's name away from the same name used by the wacky villain in 'Silence of the Lambs.'
I played characters with villainous aspect. But out-and-out villain? No.
I feel like life is much greater than a hero or a villain: there's good people that sometimes make mistakes.
I like playing the villain.
I usually do get to play the very sweet, charming roles... but I'm not an obvious kind of villain.
It's fun playing the villain now and again; villains are so simple, and you don't have to worry about the audience loving you.
I would like to make it known, on this program, loud and clear, that I would absolutely embrace with all five of my arms being a Bond villain.
I don't necessarily prefer playing villains. I know a lot of people say they are more fun, but if the scriptwriter has done their work well, you can find something realistic in a villain and find the mistakes in a hero - it's all down to the writing.
