* Ian Hawke from the ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' film series. In the first film, he discourages Dave from furthering his music career at the beginning, then once the Chipmunks get famous, he proceeds to spoil them, distance them from Dave, and tire them out from constant tours. It wasn't until the Chipmunks see Dave infiltrating one of their concerts that they realise Ian's a [[BitchInSheepsClothing bastard in sheep's clothing]]. In the sequel, he is jobless, but plans to get his revenge by adopting the [[DistaffCounterpart Chipettes]] and putting their Battle of the Bands audition on the Internet. They end up getting the opportunity to open for BritneySpears, and Ian puts it in top priority over the actual Battle of the Bands concert, threatening to barbecue them if they don't comply.
