** Leguizamo also has a great animated example as Sid from ''WesternAnimation/IceAge''. The series has a few others: Creator/JackBlack as a smilodon in the first, Creator/SimonPegg as an insane CrazySurvivalist weasel in the third, and Creator/PeterDinklage as a [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys giant ape]] {{Pirate}} in the fourth.

** ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'', where the hammy performance transcends the heavy make-up (and makes General Thade even more chilling).

* Stephen Lang ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', Lang is playing such an over the top R. Lee Ermey type of role.
* Stephan Lang ups the ante as the villain in the ''Film/{{Conan the Barbarian|2011}}'' reboot.

* Stephen Lang Lang's breakout role in ''Film/{{Avatar}}'', Lang is playing such an over the top a ColonelBadass which seemed perfectly fit for R. Lee Ermey type of role.
* Stephan Lang ups the ante
Ermey, and as the another villain in the ''Film/{{Conan the Barbarian|2011}}'' reboot.



* Creator/GeoffreyRush, already noted in the ''Pirates'' folder, is [[http://thedissolve.com/news/4609-geoffrey-rush-goes-for-final-quarter-of-egot-by-st/ singled out]] by Creator/NathanRabin as a "shameless ham", who won an Oscar for "a real-life person who was essentially a collection of hammy tics and actorly mannerisms" and an Emmy for "in a bit of egregious scenery-chewing, he played not only the famous acting chameleon PeterSellers, but also, in fantasy sequences, a number of people in Sellers’ life".

** Erik Lehnsherr cries out at the top of his lungs, "IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME?! IS THIS WHAT I AM?!"
** En Sabah Nur is a goldmine of these, to the point where it almost seems like he has been ripped straight out of the '90s cartoon:
*** "EVERYTHING THEY'VE BUILT, WILL FALL!!! AND FROM THE ASHES OF THEIR WORLD, WE'LL BUILD A BETTER ONE!!!"
*** "No more stones. No more spears. No more slings. No more swords! NO MORE WEAPONS! NO MORE SYSTEMS!! NO MORE... No more superpowers."
*** "YOU CAN FIRE YOUR ARROWS FROM THE TOWER OF BABEL, BUT YOU CAN ''NEVER STRIKE '''GOD'''''!!!"
*** "Charles, I know you can hear me. We're still connected. CHARLES! SHOW YOURSELF! '''CHAAAAAARLES!!!''' SHOW YOURSELF!!!"
*** "CHARLES!!! COME, RESCUE YOUR WEAKLINGS!!! GIVE YOUR LIFE FOR THEIRS!!! CHARLES, WILL YOU DO NOTHING?!!"

** Erik Lehnsherr cries out at the top of his lungs, "IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME?! IS THIS WHAT I AM?!"
AM?!" Clearly Creator/MichaelFassbender was trying to get to IanMcKellen's Magneto, highlighted in the actor's folder above.

* "'''[[Film/HomeAlone HARRY!]]''' '''''[[MemeticMutation I'VE REACHED THE TOP!!]]'''''"

to:

* "'''[[Film/HomeAlone HARRY!]]''' '''''[[MemeticMutation Joe Pesci is hardly subtle in any role, specially given his TypeCasting as either "HairTriggerTemper" (''Film/RagingBull'', ''Film/GoodFellas'') or "SmugSnake-wannabe" (the ''Film/LethalWeapon'' sequels). ''Film/HomeAlone'' not only enables Pesci to chew lots of scenery by [[EvilIsHammy playing a villain]], but [[HamToHamCombat puts him alongside the equally hammy]] Daniel Stern ("HARRY! I'VE REACHED THE TOP!!]]'''''"TOP!!").
* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 2016}}'' had Kate [=McKinnon=] as Jillian Holtzmann, a MadScientist [[GenkiGirl who never keeps still]]. From her [[IncomingHam introduction]] saying [[LipstickLesbian "You come around here often?"]], to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A76LFGvmbXM a dance sequence]], she's enjoying the whole ordeal profusely.[=McKinnon=] is having so much fun in the role the Blu-Ray has almost 10 minutes of her improvising, appropriately named [[https://www.tumblr.com/search/holtzmann%20gone%20wild "Holtzmann Gone Wild"]].

* His very debut was as a henchman in ''Film/LicenceToKill'', not a main Bond villain like the ones in a folder below, but still requiring some ham ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5rUWO1ZUQA "Don't worry, we gave her a nice ''honeymooooon''!"]])



* A voice acting role in ''Film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction '' had Goodman voice BoisterousBruiser Hound, [[https://youtu.be/AUUwBIMsOro taking no prisoners.]]
-->I'm like a fat ballerina who takes scalps and slits throats!



** The overacted scenes were supposed to be practice takes. Mr. Scott was not happy to see himself hamming it up on the big screen.

* Just about every bad guy indulges in EvilIsHammy - [[Film/IronMan1 Obadiah Stane]], [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk The Abomination]] (before transformation, not so much), [[Film/IronMan2 Ivan Vanko, Justin Hammer]], [[Film/IronMan3 The Mandarin]] - [[spoiler: both Trevor, who ''is'' a hammy actor playing the supposed terrorist, and Killian, who once embraces the villainous part gets boisterous]] - [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Red Skull]], [[Film/{{Thor}} Loki]], [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron Ultron]]... [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld Malekith]] and [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Ronan]] are more subdued, but still say every line with intensity. For ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', [[spoiler: the best we've got is Arnim Zola as a VirtualGhost, dropping {{Wham Line}}s in gleefully evil ways.]]

* The villain of ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', Krall, is mostly not very hammy given the heavy make-up doesn't allow Creator/IdrisElba to do so. [[spoiler:Though come the final quarter where Krall's mostly human again, and the angry dialogue just calls for overacting ("I fought for Humanity! Lost millions to the Xindi and Romulan wars.
