Gary Oldman, the versatile actor who’s played such memorable roles as Count Dracula, Sirius Black, Jim Gordon, and Sid Vicious, among many other non-pop culture characters, turns 55 years old today.
To commemorate the occasion, the folks over at Flavorwire put together a video supercut titled “Gary Oldman Loses His Shit,” which compiles scenes from some of Oldman’s movies where the English actor basically loses his shit. Included are clips from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, The Fifth Element, Romeo Is Bleeding, Sid and Nancy, True Romance, and many more. If you’re familiar with Oldman’s movies, then you know, if one of his characters loses their shit, chances are, someone’s getting hurt. Yes, before he was Harry Potter’s Godfather and helping Batman fight crime, The Dark Knight actor played some pretty frightening characters.
Check out the video supercut here below – it’s the best thing you’ll watch all week.
