5. Kraven the Hunter
A Russian immigrant and fierce hand-to-hand combatant, Sergei Kravinoff has taken down the most dangerous animals on earth with his bare hands. His most coveted trophy is Spider-Man, and he will risk any life to seize his prey.
Hollywood's Pick: Viggo Mortensen
Heck, his character Nikolai from Eastern Promises is almost the same as Kraven, if you add a bunch of Russian mob tattoos and a few more bath-house brawls. While I do not doubt the man's badassery, somehow I doubt he would want to be pigeonholed as the same character type... outside that one character who fought the armies of Mordor for quite a few years.
My Pick: Sean Bean
Lovely symmetry in this entry, huh? The other man of Gondor from Lord of the Rings has experience playing Russians and over-the-top villains, including the big baddie in Goldeneye and the lead terrorist in Patriot Games. Bean's advancing age and penchant for characters who die before the credits roll suggest a great opportunity to do the "Kraven's Last Hunt" storyline, a defining moment for the character.
