#16: William Atherton

Atherton was the definitive, weasely jerk of the '80s. If your film needed a slimy authority figure without a single respectable bone in his body, you cast William Atherton.

Recommended Role: Walter Peck - Ghostbusters



#17: Sean Bean

Bean spent much of his illustrious career as a villain who would die in the end. While the villain part has faded away, the dying part is still in style.

Recommended Role: Ned Stark - Game of Thrones

Sean Bean for me - I remember him from Troy. He was Odysseus in it and created a very dignified and honorable character, made a very convincing character. So, even if there was no Ned Stark I'd go with Sean Bean.

William Atherton, on the strength of Day of the Locust and a long career in movies and theater. He had that funny bit in Ghostbusters (thanks mainly to Bill Murray), but I wouldn't vote for him based soley on his jerk roles.

This may not be fair to Sean Bean, but I haven't seen him enough to vote for him.

I don't get why critics trashed that movie. I loved it.

Although William Atherton was great in Day of the Locust.

It was the very first script I read. Beautiful screenplay by David Bernioff. Someone surely appreciated his writing anyway.

- I remember the reviews being fairly mixed. Maybe you're thinking of Alexander which came out around the same time and was panned.

They said tons against Troy.
"Royal family watching the battles - hollywoodish
Achilles calling Hector, Hector hearing him - hollywoodish
predicting the outcome of a war based on some insects behavior - not true
Helen - the actress not beautiful enough
Brad Pitt didn't bring it, obly Erich Bana did..."
the list goes on and on. I remember because I loved the movie too. Too lazy to check it out on rotten tomtoes, but I'm pretty sure most did not approve the movie.

I guess 54% RT score would have to be considered mixed. I think they're way off, but it certainly didn't get trounced as bad as I recall. I just remembered lots of reviews saying it was an emotionless CGI fest.

I much prefer critics back then though. They were actually critical of films. Nowadays, when I go to mainstream blockbusters with 98% ratings I can barely sit through them. And what was considered Troy level mediocrity now matches up with Maze Runner: The Death Cure.
