Who Played It Best? Hannibal Lecter
My Two Cents
This will come down to the Hopkins fans and the television fans. As good as Brian Cox was in "Manhunter," Hopkins was way better and he got the most traction out of the role. I think Gaspard Ulliel tried, but is work in the film was the least of that particular movie's worries. Its really Hopkins who really picked up the role and ran with it, which is why his take on the character is so popular. For the first time in several years though, Hopkins is getting some competition in Madds Mikkelsen. "Hannibal" on NBC is a strong show, and not something you would ever expect to see on a primetime network. But still, if my life was threatened, I would still give the edge to Hopkins.

LAST TIME IN "WHO PLAYED IT BEST: MAX ROCKATANSKY
I am still drunk in love with "Mad Max: Fury Road." So much so that I based last time's "Who Played It Best" on the character. The results are in and here is how the vote shook out.
