Who is your favourite hellraiser?

Bit of an odd subject, I agree but it just made me think about it yesterday as I watched a bit of `The 4 Musketeers` which was on telly.
For me it just has to be Oliver Reed.
Which reminds me . . . . `What is the difference between Nick Leeson and Oliver Reed?`
Answer - One is a weary banker . . .
I know, I know . . shouldn`t speak ill of the dead but I`m sure Oliver Read would have been happy with that description.
I still remember him on the `Parkinson show` . . one of several times . . he just leaned forward, looked Parky in the eyes . . and said `You f##ker`
So . . . who is your favourite?

Re: Who is your favourite hellraiser?

I'll see your Olly Reed (excellent choice BTW) and raise you a Richard Harris and a Peter O'Toole.

Re: Who is your favourite hellraiser?

Robert Mitchum and I once drank Mescal in Arizona. I don't remember what happened but it took a week to recover.



In the late 1980s, Mickey Rourke and I rode bikes across the south of France. I remember the faces, but not the names:



Robert Downey Jr is a cousin of a friend of mine. We went to a party in Tel Aviv for a wedding and we hung out for the weekend. I don't remember anything.



All of the above is untrue

Re: Who is your favourite hellraiser?

Apart from myself

I have to go for Shaun Ryder.

"I think I look good for 41, too. People forget that I'm that old. They think I'm Peter Pan!" - Shaun Ryder

Shit, is this mine? Did I puke on myself? - Shaun Ryder

Iím not too sure where Iíve been, Iíve just got off a plane, mate. I think it was Spain or Norway or some mad place like thatÖ in fact ask Bez. - "Shaun Ryder at Manchester Airport 1992, after returning from Holland"

Drugs are what makes me the lyrical genius you see before you. Drugs did that. Any and all. - Shaun Ryder

The chicks are always attracted to me enormous charisma. - Shaun Ryder

Re: Who is your favourite hellraiser?

Not quite what you had in mind, perhaps, but can't beat ole "Pinhead" from the "Hellraiser" movie. Legend...

Re: Who is your favourite hellraiser?

As we are on the continent I would throw in a Depardieu (although Reedy still gets my vote)
