YMMV: Christopher Lee

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Christopher Lee did what the rest of us will forever only dream of doing: he landed a role in both Star Wars AND The Lord of the Rings — SIMULTANEOUSLY. note 
    • It gets even better when you think about his role in both franchises a little more: The Two Towers was the central film of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and is the film in which Saruman's threat is at its greatest. Attack of the Clones is the central film of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, and is the film in which Count Dooku plays the greatest role. Both films came out in 2002. The fact that Saruman and Count Dooku are very comparable characters helps (they're both cool old guys that were some of the greatest forces of good in their respective franchises who were then corrupted by a powerful, sinister figure, and were killed in the third installment of their respective trilogies).
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Pretty much every one of Lee's roles is this now, since...well....
