I vote John Terry as Leiter in TLD, although he redeemed himself years later, with solid work as Jack's father on, IMO, the best TV show of the last decade, Lost. Actually the best TV show of all-time I might suggest.

Good choice. I hadn't thought of that. Next round of polls we should be sure to put him on. I think Soon Tek-Oh should have been on the list as well; he escaped my mind until after the poll was published.

Nobody's in the same dismal league with Bush.

I'd never frowned at the thought of Cumming until entering this thread.

Grand L.Bush was poor too, though I found Sharky (Frank McRae) rather likeable actually.

It's hard to dislike Sharky/McRae.

Interesting, the way you stack the deck in these polls, Grav.

Again, from the pool of talent selected, I can only give thumbs-down to poor Grand L. Bush, but to be fair it's not his fault that his role was so woefully underwritten.

He and Robert Davi make a great team as Agent Johnson and Special Agent Johnson in Die Hard the year before. He had one of my favorite lines:

Davi (gripping the M-60 in the door of the Huey): WOOO-HOOOO! Just like F***IN' Saigon - eh, Slick?
Bush: I was in juniour high, Dickhead.

Perhaps the polls should be broken into best/worst henchman and best/worst helper. Then you could put Stamper up against Gobinda, and Sharky vs Columbo, etc.

There's no stacked deck. The polls were put together based on actual line delivery and talent displayed. If you look at the categories, you'll find henchwoman, Bond Girls, M, Q, whatever....in the same category. In other words, we are evaluating the actual talent of the acting, not the type of role or the category of the role.

I can't help it if some of the worst acting found happened to be in LTK. On the other hand, the other polls have recognized Davi and Dalton for their excellent performances. But it's the talent that should be evaluated, and I honestly can't say that Grand L. Bush or Frank McRae or the other guy in LTK gave anything but a poor performance.

And, for the record, I voted for Gotz Otto.

Hmmm...my signature has suddenly started to show up.

Gotz Otto, more of a punk than a henchman.

I can't really vote for any of them. I thought they were all quite passable.

Grand L Bush takes the cake. LTK improves immensely the moment he exits the film.

I always felt he need one more scene, towards the end of the movie, where he would how up to plug somebody in the back then say to Bond, "I told you I wasn't just going to forget about it."

Or would that have been too Deus ex machina?

Gotz Otto for me. Grand L Bush is awful but thankfully he has less screentime.

I think every henchman from TND -QOS has been terrible. I hope B23 can end that.

I don't understand why Alan Cumming is up there. Perhaps you don't like his character, but his performance wasn't bad at all. Personally, I think the character is great comic relief, and I think he does a fantastic job at portraying the nerdy, fruitful character. Where is John Terry on the list?

Cumming's accent was simply not credible as a Russian. Even Famke Janssen's accent was a bit better. The audience loved him and he was great fun as a nerd, but the accent was too dodgy. John Terry's performance wasn't great either, but he had so few scenes that he couldn't be included.

I liked Boris. And as a man who speaks Russian--albeit rustily--I found nothing particularly woeful about Cumming's accent. Just a typical western actor faking Rooskie.
