Rufus Sewell: Pompous Dickhole

Look at that. There is nothing I could say about Sewell's delectably evil (say with me, with a slight sneer: "EEEEEEE-VILLLLLLLLLL") performance as Prince Leopold in the surprisingly solid The Illusionist that isn't already said, better and more concisely by his single assholic look in that still. The slightly upturned nose, the ever so haughty moustache (I would KILL to have a moustache like that!), and his handle on a cigarette that only a royal (or a royal douchebag) could pull off. Ladies and gentlemen, that is how you convey sympathy for the devil.

Bravo, Rufus.

The weird thing is how Sewell -- who was a pretty decent leading man in Dark City -- played almost the exact same part earlier this year in the mostly (and justly) unseen Tristan & Isolde -- the royal douchebag, if you will. It seems to be his shtick these days (I guess Billy Zane retired).

You can tell someone is a great actor is he is known as a world class hottie but men still rave about his performances.

Women want him, men want to be him sort of a thing?
