Some individuals are great when cast in a certain type of role, while a lot of actors are great when they’re cast in just about any role. Ray Stevenson has been great in just about everything, even if a lot of people believe that he wasn’t one of the greatest versions of the Punisher. Some folks would put him above Dolph Lundgren and Thomas Jane, but it’s more or less the entire movie he was given to star in that was a mess. But one thing about Stevenson is that when cast into the role of a villain he’s great so long as he’s given the type of dialogue that’s not too hokey and doesn’t force him to talk more than is needed, and when he’s given a role that allows him to make use of his intimidating stature. There have been plenty of movies in which he’s been allowed to be the brooding, heroic type, or the intimidating villain. The reason he’s such a good villain is that when he appears ready to do some damage he could be jovial or he could be angry and look ready to tear something up, it doesn’t really matter. He simply looks intimidating.
