The Neglected Nemeses: Brainiac
Many actors have been suggested for the role of Brainiac, including Jason Isaacs, James Marsters (who played the role on the TV series Smallville), Jude Law and Hugo Weaving. I went with a different choice here. Sam Neill has been a favorite actor of mine for some time and has proven time and again that he is a very capable and talented actor. His work in Jurassic Park is probably his most widely known role, but it was his part in the sci-fi/horror film Event Horizon, in which he played a possessed scientist, that really impressed. More recently, he played the rather naughty Cardinal Wolsey on The Tudors, as well as one of the main villains in the questionable yet cool-looking Daybreakers. Neill’s voice has potential to add a creepiness and a darkness to any villain and I’d love to see what he could do with a character like Brainiac.
