-->''Hello to Jason Isaacs!''
-->--'''MarkKermode'''

Jason Isaacs is one of the most [[EvilIsSexy deliciously]], [[DracoInLeatherPants delectably]], [[EvilBrit devilish]] British actors of the present day. He was born in 1963 in Liverpool to a Jewish family, and his family were harassed by ultranationalists during his youth. He often plays despicable characters, despite being a self-described boring suburban man in private life.

!Tropes

* EvilBrit: Colonel Tavington in ''ThePatriot''. Also Lucius Malfoy (although almost every character in that series is British) and Captain Hook.
* FakeAmerican: As Dr. Quincy, Captain Steele, Admiral Zhao, and Michael Caffee.
** And now Michael Britten.
** [[FakeNationality Fake German]] in ''Good'' (in which he, alongside Creator/ViggoMortensen, speaks English, without a German accent.)
* InkSuitActor: Admiral Zhao really does look like Jason with large sideburns.
* LargeHam: One of the largest kosher hams after WilliamShatner. During the filming of ''Chamber of Secrets'', he, Creator/AlanRickman and KennethBranagh had a competition over who could be the hammiest.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: He's described himself as a "cringing, neurotic Jewish mess."
* OneOfUs: He has much love for Film/HarryPotter and his character of Lucius Malfoy. Of the adult actors, he's totally the one having the most fun (even attempting to steal his pimp cane from the set after filming).
** He's also been a huge fan of Comic Books since childhood and has said he had mountains of Marvel and DC books in his room.
* PromotedFanboy: He loves Comic books and got to play Ra's Al Ghul in ''Batman: Under The Red Hood''.
* ThrowItIn: The initial concept for Lucius Malfoy was of a man with short blond hair and a pinstriped suit. Jason argued that Lucius, being a [[FantasticRacism wizard supremacist]], would want to look as different from a Muggle as possible. He put on a blond wig and velvet cloak and suggested a cane for grand gestures, leading to the iconic Lucius Malfoy look.
