Holy shit, this will be a great series-- and the reader suggestions have been fantastic.

The first ones that popped to mind-- Toht from RAIDERS and Harry Cooper from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (either version, although the '90 version owns every other, IMHO)-- have been nominated already. I'll suggest Michael Rooker's variation on R.J. Fletcher, in MALLRATS, Alec Baldwin in GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS (not just an asshole, but an asshole with dialogue by David Mamet-- "Coffee's for closers!"), and Henry Gibson in THE BLUES BROTHERS. And would there even be a yardstick for movie assholery without John Cazale's work in THE GODFATHER and THE GODFATHER PART II? "It's what Pop wanted!" "It's not what I wanted!" King Asshole.
