Fun Fact,  I don't remember Ed Harris in any hero roles. 
He only plays villains  https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000438/?ref_=nmls_hd

In The Rock, I'd describe him as "The Military Loki" - you didn't sympathize with what he did, but in a way you understood him.

Cinephile.........Ed Harris????? The Right Stuff!!!! Villain? An Astronaut not a hero? I think not.....
Apollo 13 mission commander!!!!!!
Ed Harris in Apollo 13 1995

Plus he's been married one time! Once! That's heroic by Hollywood standards.
And he will have his 36th anniversary shortly.

He is a bad guy in:
Snowpiercer
Truman Show
Westworld

At least now he only plays bad guy.

cinephile, that happens A LOT with character actors. It takes some time to remember non-villainous roles of Brion James. Granted, he often portrayed characters with depth so they were not 100% villains (Leon Kowalski in Blade Runner), but most of his roles had at least some ngative impact on protagonists...

FYC: 
Damon Killian from The Running Man (1987) (he is an amalgamation of at least two characters from the original novel, Killian who was a manager and the host whose name I can't remember from the top of my head; overall he's still one of the fewer characters taken from the novel with certain degree of adaptation).

Isaac in Children of the Corn is the worst even though the movie is not the best.

Congratulations, Paok. I know the movie 'Needful Things' wasn't as successful as 'It', but I voted for Leland Gaunt, because he was the most devilish and intriguing villain I know of Stephen King books. May I suggest you to make a poll about the most intriguing Stephen King characters?

I have already made it, but I didn't include villains, only the heroes, thanks!
