    Hand down it's gotta be Sam L. No one can [email protected]%^[email protected] like him!

    As an aside:

    The worst use of "mutha------" was in Die Hard (first installment, I think) when the villian says it mockingly to Bruce Willis' character.

    I think Matt wins the prize. Nobody spits out an F-bomb like Sam Ell.

    Yes Nick, I was just about to quote that line!! I think that's the only example of using motherf***er twice consecutivly in one sentence. No one else could ever pull that off!!

    I would also like to add Ewan Mcgregor (if only for Trainspotting. "It's Shite being Scottish!")

    Kathleen Turner...something about a Bacall-voice Mrs. Robinson-type spewing out foul language is pretty cool.

    Linda Blair...In "The Exorcist", that is. The crucifix scene...need more be said?

    Sincerely,

    Samuel L Jackson is the coolest.

    I submit Eddie Izzard for consideration as well. He's got great attitude in the bad guy roles he's played to date and in his comedy shows, he throws naughty words around like punctuation. If he ever gets a bad guy/tough guy role in a movie with an R-rating, he will prove me out!

    Anthony Perkins (R.I.P) was awesome with foul words, and when he went verb-to-verb to Kathleen Turner in "Crimes Of Passion", well...read this exchange, and then see the movie to hear how it's interpreted by them:

    China Blue (Kathleen Turner): I never forget a face...especially when I've sat on it.
    Reverend Peter Shayne (Anthony Perkins): Save your soul, whore!
    China: Save your money, shithead!

    Killer lines...delivered by 2 pros in the movie game!

    Sincerely,

    John "Okay, if Kathleen Turner isn't in the current beautiful women tournament, I could always make a 'Lovely Ladies Of The 80s' tournament and give her a shot" Kilduff

    Yeah, Nick Nolte is pretty cool with that gravel voice. Another good one is Richard Pryor.
