240: Wicked movie roles

The following actors, listed on page 240 of The Billionth Monkey, have all played Satan or a similarly devilish character in major movies:
  • Al Pacino plays John Milton (Satan) in The Devil’s Advocate (1997)  [John Milton is named after the author of Paradise Lost.]
  • Robert DeNiro portrays Louis Cyphre in one of my favorite movies, Angel Heart (1987).
  • Jack Nicholson plays the devilish Daryl Van Horne in The Witches of Eastwick (1987).
  • Before he was Aragorn in Lord of the Rings, Viggo Mortensen was Lucifer in The Prophecy (1995).
  • Tim Curry played the decidedly devilish Darkness in Ridley Scott’s Legend (1985).
  • Elizabeth Hurley plays the Devil in the 2000 remake of Bedazzled.
