For years, actor Gary Oldman was the go-to guy for movie villainy, turning in memorable performances in Bram Stoker's Dracula (creep-adelic Count Dracula), True Romance (skeevy pimp Drexl Spivey), and The Professional (psycho cop Norman Stansfield). After a brief hiatus from acting in the early '00s, Oldman returned as a kinder, gentler version of himself, taking on good guy roles in major movie franchises like the Harry Potter series (Harry's godfather, Sirius Black) and Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy (Bat-buddy James Gordon).
Now that Oldman has finally received an Academy Award nomination for the good-guy role of MI6 agent George Smiley in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, it looks like he's ready to return to the dark side. According to THR, Oldman is in "final negotiations" to play the villain in Albert Hughes' new revenge thriller, Motor City. more about Motor City >> Posted 02.03.12 by BrentJS
