Movie star? Me?

I don't think so.

But anti-hero seems to float my boat.

I would like to play an explorer or discover something life changing etc, not so much heroic or evil. rather thought provoking, liberating or completely new and interesting.

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I'd play a villian or anti-hero in a heart beat. Villian if it's a mad scientists or global domination or Anti-hero if it's a nice revenge story.

Thinking of a couple of famous examples I recal a story about Jackie Chan who I believe refused many supporting roles as 'the bad guy' alongside hollywood a-listers before he became a household name in the west.
I also remember an interview with Lee Van Cleef where he spoke about his 'face' typecasting him as the villain. He laughed and seemed reasonably happy with his career but I got the feeling that he would have liked to have been the 'hero' a bit more often. Strangely when you look back at his career he did play 'good guys' earlier in his career and his role as Col. Douglas Mortimer in 'For a few dollars more' is one of the seminal anti-hero roles although of course by the time he semi-reprised the role as 'Angel Eyes' (Sentenza) in the best western ever 'The Good The bad and the Ugly' he was 'The Bad'.


It's interesting to note from the replies so far, how many people would like to explore the dark side of human nature.

Especially the anti-hero types roles. They are a bit delicious aren't they?

Aye, I suppose we all have a dark side.

It all comes down to how our brains are wired.

Thats why I asked the question in this way.
We all have a dark side but most of us would never want to do anyone any harm. So the fantasy of the movie role is the perfect medium to explore the dark side of human nature!
