The legendary Christopher Lee has played his fair share of hardcore villains, from Dracula, to Scaramanga, to Darth Tyranus, to Saruman. But none of his characters holds a candle to Lee's larger-than-life (literally: he's 6'5") persona. The guy is a champion sword-fighter, a war hero, fluent in six languages, and is descended from Charlemagne. He does all his own stunts, which means that it's actually Lee hitting the walls in that insane wizard fight in Fellowship of the Ring. Oh also, just for fun? He likes to sing both opera and death metal. WHAT?! We could write a whole book on why Lee is the ultimate celebrity badass, and it would be one million pages long and counting.
