9. Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), "Django Unchained"
Tarantino has created a lot of bastards (and, er, Basterds) in his past scripts, but there's a special place in movie hell reserved for Calvin Candie, the guilelessly sinister plantation owner who serves as Django's biggest hurdle in "Django Unchained." In a startling change of pace, DiCaprio recognizes just how much a little Southern charm can mask an absolute and almost childish ruthlessness within his character's uber-racist bones. The owner of "Candieland" and the biggest Francophile in the pre-Civil War South presents the most interesting wrinkle in Tarantino's latest adventure.
