My old pal Severus Koskinen once compared me to Hannibal Lecter, possibly because of moments like this scene from Hannibal (2001)
, but actually the character that originally most directly inspired Scar was Hickey from Last Man Standing (1996), because of moments like this
. While it's true that Scar has a jokey but deadpan sort of dialog in roleplay akin to Hopkins in the above movie, what I was really going for was the kind of fellow who would be calmly doing something mundane one moment and in the very next erupts into surprising violence, while still being just as cold about it during and directly after. He definitely has Walken's rasping voice, regardless.
