The New York Times has put together a wonderful video collection of modern day actors recreating classic villains from cinema history. The gallery is called Touch of Evil and it's "inspired by nefarious icons and featuring the best performers from the year in film" some of these actors include Brad Pitt as Eraserhead, Rooney Mara as Alex from A Clockwork Orange, Gary Oldman as the Menacing Dummy, Kirsten Dunst as the Siren, George Clooney as the Tyrant, Glenn Close as the Vamp, Viola Davis as the Vengeful Caretaker, and more. You can see some images of the actors sporting their villainous looks below, but you can click here to watch the videos. I thought this was a great little spread, check it out and tell us what you think!
