* ChronicallyKilledActor: Comes with often being cast as the villain, and [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix sometimes when not the villain.]]
* FakeNationality: He plays a variety of nationalities apart from his native English.
** To the point where (according to an interview on Radio/WaitWaitDontTellMe ) he actually had to work with an accent coach in preparation for ''Film/TinkerTailorSoldierSpy'' .
*** It's become obvious that Gary's original accent has started to fade as a result of living in America for many years, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIaWo-BlBjs as indicated by his PSA against NBA players acting in film]].

* PromotedFanboy: Did ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' because he was a fan of the first one. It also applies to his roles in ''Film/RoboCop2014'' and ''Film/DawnOfThePlanetOfTheApes''.



* {{Typecasting}}: Often cast as villainous or, at the very least, antiheroic characters. Many are insane or just peculiar. A third field is a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, such as [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga Jim Gordon]] and [[Film/TinkerTailorSoldierSpy George Smiley]].

** PlayingWithCharacterType: When he was cast in ''Film/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban'' as Sirius Black, a mass-murderer after Harry, no one was surprised. By the end, it's revealed that Sirius never murdered or betrayed anyone, and in later movies he becomes the closest thing Harry has to family (naturally, this came as no surprise to viewers who'd already read the books).

He ignited controversy in an interview with ''Magazine/{{Playboy}}'' wherein he [[http://time.com/2917097/gary-oldman-political-correctness-playboy/ railed against political correctness]] and defended Crreator/MelGibson and Alec Baldwin. He later issued an apology, although it has [[http://www.variety.com/2014/film/news/interview-adl-head-says-gary-oldmans-apology-reinforces-anti-semitism-1201246504/ not been universally well-received]].

'''Gary Leonard Oldman''' (born March 21, 1958) is an English actor who found fame in roles such as Music/SidVicious in the 1986 biopic ''Sid & Nancy'' and the title character of the 1992 blockbuster ''Film/BramStokersDracula''. Often hailed as one of greatest chameleons of his time, it can be almost impossible to spot him from one role to the next. He is known for portraying real-life figures, like the aforementioned Sid Vicious, or [[{{Film/JFK}} Lee Harvey Oswald]]. Oldman is also known for playing the main villain, particularly [[EvilIsHammy hugely]] [[ObviouslyEvil obvious]] villains whom everyone trusts anyway, in movies (such as ''Film/TheProfessional'', ''Film/AirForceOne'' and ''Film/TheFifthElement'')... except for when he [[Film/TheDarkKnightSaga hangs out with Batman]] or [[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter]], or when he's Beethoven or [[Film/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead Guildenstern]]... We're pretty sure he was Guildenstern. (He's actually [[Film/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead Rosencrantz]], but [[ThoseTwoGuys who's keeping track]]?)
