Poll: Richard Lynch...A Face You'll Never Forget

Richard Lynch was a superior actor who elevated nearly any movie with his presence. But what set him on a path to cinematic immortality was an accident in Central Park in 1967. He set himself on fire in the middle of an LSD trip. Massive reconstructive surgery followed. This left him with a distinctive scarred appearance, and made him an ideal candidate for being cast as villains in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and action films. He also became a favorite among cult film fans. His films while polarizing, were entertaining to his loyal followers. Also, most all of his films had an abundance of great leading actors too. All loved working with him. Richard, who passed on June 19, 2012, is gone, but not forgotten. Which one of his many Movie or TV roles on this list is your favorite?

    The Seven-Ups (1973)


    Richard was a passenger in a Pontiac Granville being chased by Roy Scheider driving, a Pontiac Ventura II. The Driver of the Granville was the same stunt driver in Bullit. (The Black Charger) The look on Richard's face of being scared during the chase scene, was no acting. The stuntman was scaring the s**t outta him!
