Anton Ciguhr in No Country for Old Men
Anton Ciguhr was so freakin' frightening in No Country for Old Men, but he kind of came out of nowhere in the big picture sense of things. Cast Oscar winner Javier Bardem in a movie that takes us right up to the beginning of No Country for Old Men. That, we would like to see.
