I actually took a sharp intake of breath when I first saw him on screen in the original Harry Potter movie.
He was EXACTLY how I pictured Snape when I read the books. And I hadn't been previously aware of Mr. Rickman.2,06444Perfect fit?

Michael Clarke Duncan as John Coffey in The Green Mile.
Posted by u/brendaishere:
He’s also hands down my favorite character in Armageddon. Michael Clarke Duncan is a treasure and we lost him too early. He was literally known for fans wanting hugs from him instead of photos.

100% agree. When I first heard they were turning this into a movie I was so disappointed because I couldn’t imagine who could fill John Coffey’s shoes. I was wrong. He was absolutely incredible and what I pictured in my head when I first read the book.1,61030Perfect fit?

R. Lee Ermey in Full Metal Jacket.
Reply by u/UrbanWerebear:
Ermey was originally just a consultant on that movie. He impressed the director so much demonstrating how drill instructors act that he just cast him instead of having him train the actor.1,42724Perfect fit?
