The Yes Indeed Papers Salute...

Alan Rickman

Alan Rickman Is my February pick for the unappreciated actor. Alan Rickman is the man! He is great in every role. He has so many roles that have just been just so good. I mean the guy is one of the best movie villian's of all time. He's Hans Gruber for crying out loud. Awesome! Rickman killed it as the Sheriff of Nottingham. He has one of the best death scenes in movie history from that movie. The guy can also do comedy. His performance as the Metratron is perfect and he practically carries the movie Galaxy Quest. But one of his more famous roles besides Die Hard has got to come from the Harry Potter series. Severus Snape is kind of a bad ass for a PG-13 movie series that stems from a kid's book. Alan Rickman is awesome in every movie he's in. Here are some of his more memorale roles:
  • Die Hard
  • Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • Rasputin
  • Michael Collins
  • Dogma
  • Galaxy Quest
  • Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone
  • Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix
  • Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince
  • Harrry Potter and The Deathly Hallows part 1
  • Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows part 2
  • Love Actually
  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  • Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
  • Alice In Wonderland (voice)

Alan Rickman is a brilliant actor and I'm shcoked that he hasn't won an Oscar yet. He is awesome in every role he's in and I'm sure he'll have more to come. So from everyone here at The Yes Indeed Papers (and by all of us, I mean just me), Alan Rickman.....we salute you! Yes Indeed!

And Dogma... FABULOUS! Hitchhiker's as the depressed robot.
