Both of those were great but my favorite character was Drexel Spivey, the white pimp (Gary Oldman).

Al Swerenger and Drexl from True Romance for sure.  I swear Gary Oldman could have starred in Menace to Society, great acting all around in True Romance.  Pesci was pretty much the exact same character in both movies, but thats a good thing.  No one can play a crazy mofo gangster like him

I love the entire cast of Boardwalk Empire but esp Arnold Rothstein.  His speech to Nucky about waiting for the perfect bet was absolute classic.

Damn, I forgot about Drexel..I need to watch that movie again. I've seen it probably 8 times but it's been about 12 yrs since I saw it last.

check out Sir Anthony in Fracture (2007). Ted Crawford definately his best "non-Hannibal Lecter" villian. it's GREAT plot. you KNOW Crawford shoots his cheating wife's but HOW is his gun NOT the weapon? oodles of great "twists and turns"

Jean Reno in Leon plus Gary Oldman's character from the same movie .

Jean Reno as Leon, Gary Oldman as Stansfield, and then 13 year old Natalie Portman as Mathilda, along with the movie itself, could have ALL been nominated for Oscars. I can't BELIEVE that Oldman's Stansfield isn't on the AFI's Top 50 Villains list

Totally agree Oldman's character is one of the sickest villans ever
