‘Tis the season for obnoxious lists and boring countdowns. New York Times magazine decided to go a different route and celebrate some of the best performers of the year with their series, Touch of Evil. Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Viola Davis pay tribute to some of cinema’s best villains in videos directed by Alex Prager.
Brad (Hayseed) Pitt as The Madman
George Clooney as the Tyrant
Viola Davis as the Vengeful Caretaker
Brad and Viola’s are my favorites. Say what you will about Hayseed, but he can commit to a character. You can also see Glenn Close get vampy and Rooney Mara as a Droog with the rest of the vamps, crooks and killers here.
