ohmygawd! I totally second the Chet nomination. To this day, everytime I make myself breakfast, I remember how he stole Wyatt's, spit in it and then said, "now make yourself some." It's totally worse too because they're brothers.

How can you forget the Captain from "Pan's Labyrinth"?!?!

simogene Jun 27th, 2008 07:25 AM

Hedley Lamarr from Blazing Saddles. Not only is he an asshole but he loves his froggy in the tub.

Colewolf Jun 27th, 2008 03:12 PM

What about some of Tim Curry's roles? He can play a good asshole, and a creepy one to top it off.

Fear N Loathing Jun 27th, 2008 07:43 PM

almost anything Bruce Campbell played in... Ash in 'Army of Darkness'... Elvis in 'Bubba Ho Tep' I mean he's not like a maniacal asshole, just an <i>asshole</i> asshole ya know? Like when Ash forgets his line in the cemetary... all I could think was "What an asshole...."

Three Words... Judge Elihu Smails

Played by Ted Knight in the epic classic, Caddyshack. Not only did he have great memorable one-liners like, "Spaulding get your foot off the boat!", "Don't you people have homes?", and "Well the world needxs ditch diggers too." But he wrote a beutiful poem about being an asshole.

It's easy to grin
When your ship comes in
And you've got the stack market beat
But the man worth while
Is the man who can smile
When his shorts are too tight in the seat

Nothing says smuggness like that. He's so much of an asshole that he makes Ty Webb (a tremendous asshole character) seem like a charming guy throughout the whole movie.

Perhaps a drama movie like 'This boy's life' is not really suitable for a list like this one, but for me there is no bigger asshole then Dwight (Robert DeNiro)

Copper Jun 28th, 2008 01:41 AM

Seeing the Judge Smails poem reminded me of another lyrical asshole...Dom Deluise's Melvin P. Thorpe from "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." I mean, nobody thought twice about the Chicken Ranch until he decided to put it on television. Even when I was younger, I was booing him *laughs*

And another Atherton asshole...Jerry Hathaway from "Real Genius" (and his sidekick, Kent, played by Robert Prescott) Not only did they make life miserable for the main characters, they totally lied about their plans for the laser.

Tom Foolery Jun 28th, 2008 03:25 AM

Jerry Hathaway! Now that's an asshole I haven't heard about in years. He was asshole of Walter Peck proportions.

I noticed Viking Lonfgren was played by Clancy Brown. That's the guy who played Kurgan, the huge bad guy Mcleod had to defeat in the end of Highlander. Now putting your enemies girlfriend in a car with you as you play chicken at high speed through the streets of New York. Now that's an asshole!

resident-adam Jun 28th, 2008 05:55 AM

I gotta agree with Bolo Yung being on the list.. man that guy is scary!

Blaster Atoms Jun 28th, 2008 08:19 AM

I'm glad people mentioned Hans Gruber, Francis Buxton, Shooter Mcgavin, and Luther. Some suggestions of my own would be Dick Jones(or Cohagen...), Stiffler, John Goodman or Ted McGinley in Revenge of the Nerds, That weasely guy or the entire O'doyle family from Billy Madison, The evil German ping pong champ in Balls of Fury, and the entire Spursbury Police Department(and Farva) from Super Troopers.

Kilgore Cod Jun 29th, 2008 01:09 AM

BRICK TOP.

And Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, even though he eventually learns his lesson.

But my numero uno pick goes to Clarence Bodickker.

Lostmayhem Jun 29th, 2008 04:34 AM

Hey ROG
I was just submitting that according to IMDB Walter Peck will be rearing his ugly head again this fall when The Ghostbusters game comes out for the XBOX360, hopefully it will be better than that exact movie to video game release of the Ghostbusters for the NES. Also a couple of my favorite movie assholes are: Sylvester Stallone as Machine Gun Joe Viterbo in Death Race 2000, and Michael DeLuise as Matt Wilson, the bully in Encino Man. SHUSH

Shadow40000 Jun 29th, 2008 12:37 PM

Scutt Farkas from "A Christmas Story"

Nick Jun 29th, 2008 01:59 PM

Finally someone who actually likes the movie Popeye.

Lonán Jun 29th, 2008 10:02 PM

Wow, great list. The on tremendous asshole I remember that wasn't named yet (and kinda fitting giving the recent article on Patrick Swayze's 'Renegades') would be Brad Wesley from 'Road House'. Bullying town people, setting farms on fire, crushing all the cars in a car salesman's yard... Sure, he didn't do all this stuff himself, but doing all this crap through his cronies makes him an even bigger asshole - especially since he's such a dick towards his employees throughout the whole movie.

That, and he killed Wade Garrett. What an asshole.

RadioNinja Jun 30th, 2008 04:11 PM

How about Gene Wilder in Charlie and the Chocolate factory?

"But...Mr. Wonka..."
"GOOD DAY SIR!"

Also, The hunchback from 300. What a dick.

Anti.5 Jun 30th, 2008 04:23 PM

The soda can scene in "Bad Boys" is one of the greatest moments in cinematic history. I still get chills of pure elation every time I watch that shit.

Danny 4 Eyes Jun 30th, 2008 05:40 PM

There is some top arsehole-age going on there Rog. I have to agree with whoever said Shooter McGavin, that dude is a top-notch arsehole. "Choke on that BABY !!!!"

MartinSargent Jun 30th, 2008 06:28 PM

Cooper from Night of the Living Dead. Gotta have him on the next list.

Art Vandelay Jul 1st, 2008 02:05 AM

Hardy Jenns from Some Kind of Wonderful.

James Spader in Pretty in Pink.

The principal in The Breakfast Club.

FRANCIS from Pee Wee's Big Adventure!!

Kirbykid Jul 1st, 2008 03:16 PM

What about Mallrats? That movie had two assholes for the price of one! Also I'd have to say Ash form Army of Darkness. yeah, he is the good guy, but he's still an asshole. And let's not forget about the "Extreme Sports Punks" from Harold and Kumar.
My final suggestion is something I don't think anyone would say: Lord Rothbart from The Swan Princess!! No really, That guy is pure asshole set in human form!!
There are more, but they have been said already, I think!

Great article! can't wait for the next one!

0dd1 Jul 1st, 2008 10:08 PM

I LOVED/HATED R.J. Fletcher!!!

Danny 4 Eyes Jul 3rd, 2008 08:15 AM

Don't think anyone has mentioned Chaka Luther King (Chris Rock) from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. This guy screamed arsehole, especially in the way he just rides poor Jamie Kennedy's assistant character. Still a very, very funny character, even though he's only in it for about 10 minutes or so. Pure arseholeage.
