Christopher McDonald (Shooter McGavin – “Happy Gilmore”, Travis Cole – “Dirty Work”) – “I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast!”
Smarmy Asshole: Best known for his roles as the guy you love to hate in “Happy Gilmore,” “Dirty Work,” “Thelma & Louise” and even “Flubber.” He’s tried the nice father role in “Monkey Trouble,” but not many bought it. You knew he would strangle that little monkey the first chance he got. He also has the ability to pop up in your heavily medicated
nightmares as a twisted game show host if you don’t watch your ass.
Mark Metcalf (Doug Neidermeyer – “Animal House”, Aquilla Beckerstead – “One Crazy Summer”) – “You’re all worthless and weak! Now drop and give me twenty!”
Twisted Sister Asshole: His role as uber-asshole Doug Neidermeyer caught the attention of uber-goober rockers Twisted Sister and they asked him to star in not one, but two of their music videos, finding his cartoonishly furious character prying out of a sweaty teen the confession – “I Wanna Rock!”
Taylor Negron (Julio – “Easy Money”) – “I’m bad. I’m so bad I should be in detention!”
Shady Asshole: Best known for his role as Julio (or the talking bush) in “Easy Money.” Since then, and even a little before then too, he’s the guy that constantly pops up in movies as a shady deliveryman, mailman, pizza delivery guy, store clerk, or cab driver. He made a quick pit-stop as the villain in “The Last Boy Scout” in the early 90s, but then it was back to minding a liquor store in the “Stoned Age.” Hey, he’s good at it.
Robert Prescott (Cole Whittier – “Bachelor Party”, Kent Torokvei – “Real Genius”) – “You won’t get away with this. You’ll rue the day!”
The Asshole You Love to Push Around Asshole: His most memorable roles found him taking shit from absolutely everyone, even the other assholes in the movie. Not that he didn’t deserve it, I mean, there is a reason why he was almost wiped out by a gigantic Jiffy Pop in “Real Genius.”
R. Lee Ermey (Sgt. Hartman.) – “I’ll bet you’re the kind of guy that would fuck a person in the ass and not even have the goddamn common courtesy to give him a reach-around!”
Major Asshole: Had to throw a classic in here. Whether it be a drill sergeant, a police chief, a football coach, or a drunk at the corner bar, an R. Lee Ermey character will be looking for the next guy to belittle with a barrage of furious insults at maximum volume. What an asshole!
