A Brit a Day [#142]

This week I’d like to show off the cast at The Top of Their Game. This will be a thoroughly disorganized and unofficially applied theme as I have not seen each of these actors in every one of their roles. But…

Here is Alan Rickman as Judge Turpin in ‘Sweeney Todd’. It was so hard to pick one character as Rickman’s top contender. My mind always runs to Rasputin, for which he won an Emmy, and his melancholy/quirky part in ‘An Awfully Big Adventure.’ But singing “Pretty Women” with Johnny Depp pushed Judge Turpin into the top spot. [Good work on the part of the make-up department here too. Those fingernails make him almost completely disgusting.]
