The Evolution of Tim Curry

If it's been a while since you thought about what a badass actor Tim Curry is, here is your reminder. I love this guy. He hasn't done that many movies recently- he's now doing a ton of television, theater and voice over work, but jeez, what a talent. His performance of Pennywise in It left me permanently afraid of clowns. (In case you were wondering, 1993 is actually an episode of Tales from the Crypt, where he played each member of a murderous family.) What's your favorite Tim Curry performance? Clue? Congo? The Wild Thornberrys?

Here are some quick sketches I did this week. Drawn in pencil, with an underlay of tone in Photoshop.

The Evolution of Gary Oldman

When you think of amazing character actors, one leaps to the top of the pack: Gary Oldman. Incredibly versatile, he is utterly convincing in whatever role he plays. The late 80's/early 90's were an especially ripe period where he zig-zagged from playing Sid Vicious to Lee Harvey Oswald to Dracula to nearly stealing the show in his few minutes of screen time as a drug dealing pimp in True Romance. In the late 90's he was well known for his villainous roles, but in the 2000's, he endeared himself to a new generation of fans by playing both Sirius Black in the Harry Potter films, and Commissioner Gordon in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. Only one question remains: why hasn't this man won an Oscar yet?
