"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams."

Jeremy John Irons (born September 19, 1948) is an English film, television, stage and voice actor, well-known for his deep, gravelly voice, described by one critic as "whipped cream with glass shards" that reeks of Magnificent Bastardry. He has won an Academy Award, a Tony and an Emmy, making him one of the few actors to win the "Triple Crown" of acting awards, as well as two Golden Globes.

Irons is very British in his Hollywood roles, and isn't afraid to have some fun while doing a villain role for cash. It's difficult to make a meaningful anagram out of his name.

Roles:


Tropes:

  • Affably Evil: Often plays this type of character.
  • Badass Baritone: He has a very deep voice that's instantly recognizable.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His characters are often this.
  • Depraved Kids' Show Host: Or rather a kids show host that went on to play a number of depraved characters in films, including a paedophile in Lolita. But he started out as a presenter on the 1970s British children's TV show Play Away
  • Evil Brit: Often cast as a villain in roles that rarely conceal his Britishness, if ever.
  • Large Ham: Expecially as a villain.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Always comes across as a gentleman in interviews. Also has been involved in humanitarian efforts and organizations, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, an initiative aimed at defeating third-world hunger.
  • Rule of Sean Connery: Whatever the role, you can count on him to make it memorable and the film will be better for it. Notably, even the harshest critics of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice praised his performance as Alfred.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's 6'2", has this dark aura about him, and is still quite handsome in his late sixties.
