It's possible that JK Rowling had him in mind when creating the character. It would be hard to pick between Galaxy Quest & and Robin Hood. Plenty of other good ones, of course, but I love those two roles.

The problem is trying to limit yourself to defining his "best" role. And frankly, I've never seen him be less than awesome no matter what he was in.

Another British actor and comedian, John Sessions, was on QI once and did some of the best impressions of Alan Rickman - he was spot on. He wasn't doing a comedy routine, the panel was just talking about him (Emma Thompson was on the panel, too). I've linked the clip up there - his answer to the little girl about him always playing villains made me snort.

That, I doubt, because of the way she described him physically. Skinny and snivelly, etc. Physically he was nothing like Rickman, but Rickman still nailed the character.

Yup, perfect.

That is good to know. Did you know they're also remaking Clue? I can't imagine how it could possibly be anywhere near as good with a different cast.

I watched philosophers stone last night.

He was literally the only good performance in it. the rest of the big name cast were treating it like a school play and hamming it up. He acts his way through it.

I might even suffer Chamber of secrets tonight. Might!
