Okay this is weird, I just read the posts about Tim Curry/Legend and then the promo for the movie came on the tv! *cue Twilight Zone music*
I didn't have a crush on him but the character that fascinated me in Legend (besides Curry's Darkness) was his henchman goblin Blix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ruAIYMAEYM
). I remember the first time you see him (the character was actually played by a woman) it's the long nose, then these wormy lips swallow noisily and this creepy raspy voice comes out... *shudder* But he was also a hell of a shot with a bow and I was way into fantasy so I found him really compelling...and crafty and funny - one of his lackey's gets banished by Curry for mouthing off and Blix just goes "Wow." Then he has this great line about encouraging his men's initiative.
I used to be so into weird stuff I can't believe I don't have a whole list for this thread...
I'll come back and post if something I've apparently blocked out comes back to me.
