12 Actors Born To Play A Villain
These are the faces you will NEVER see rescuing damsels in distress or protecting mankind from whatever colossal threat it may encounter, simply because they’re most likely the person causing the havoc. The 12 actors listed below have embodied the darkest characters in cinema and TV we love to hate, and in turn villains they were born to portray.

1. Margaret Hamilton - In the spirit of Halloween, let’s top the list with the Wicked West of the West from “The Wizard of Oz.” The primate-loving, shoe-obsessed green-skinned villain ranked Number 4 in American Film Institute’s 2003 listing of 50...

Michael K. Williams
Actor Michael K. Williams struggled through a major identity crisis after his hit TV drama The Wire wrapped in 2008 because he could no longer separate himself from his character.

The 45 year old portrayed Omar Little, a gang member who robs drug dealers for a living, and he credits the role with pulling him out of a deep depression brought on by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But, while the job gave him a new outlook on life, it led to his eventual downfall.

He tells New York Magazine, "When the character died, I didn't know how to let it go. When people screamed 'Omar' on the street, it ...

“I don’t want to raise expectations, but this is going to be the greatest second half of any television show in the history of the world.” He may be joking, but Community star Joel McHale’s upbeat attitude perfectly echoes the feelings of the legions of fans who have been anxiously awaiting the return of TV’s most inventive and creative comedy. After being put on hiatus by NBC back in November (never a good sign for a show which has struggled to increase viewership), Community returned last night with a long-awaited new episode called “Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts.”

“John [Goodman] is terribly disruptive. He parked his car on the stage and said ‘This is my parking space,’” Joel McHale says of the sitcom legend who is guest starring on this season of “Community.” Goodman clarifies, “I parked it on a stagehand.” The two are joking, obviously, but this back and forth banter is a perfect example of the hour-long “gush fest” the two actors engaged in when discussing the new season of “Community.”

McHale returns for Season Three as Jeff Winger, the cocky ex-lawyer who runs a small, ragtag study group at Greendale Community College. Goodman will appear as Vi...

‘Community’ Recap: Biology 101

community
One of the most entertaining aspects of NBC’s “Community,” now entering Season Three, is its ability to never take itself too seriously. From “Pulp Fiction”-inspired episodes to claymation hallucinations to Sergio Leone-style paintball competitions, “Community” is one of the most inventive shows currently on television.

The episode kicks off with an over-the-top musical number featuring the entire cast (save Chevy Chase’s Pierce Hawthorne who left the group at the end of last season) which describes the characters’ goals for this year (meaning season). As it turns out, the sequence is just...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Daybreakers,' 'Youth In Revolt' & More

January 4th, 2010 9:44am EST
Daybreakers
A belated Happy New Year to all. I hope you each had happy holidays and got a chance to view all of the movies you wanted to see.

I haven't seen James Cameron's "Avatar" yet, although it's the top movie on my list right now. I've heard the film showcases some impressive visual effects, but that its dialogue and character development are not as strong. Regardless, I'm still anxious to see for myself.

2010 starts out with the release of "Daybreakers," "Youth in Revolt," "Leap Year," "Crazy on the Outside," "Wonderful World," and "Bitch Slap."

By 2017 a plague has ...
