Style Icons: Male »Donald Pleasance

donald pleasanceDonald Pleasance (who, according to imdb, has appeared in over two hundred movies), is probably best known as Dr. Loomis, psychiatrist trying to stop madman Michael Meyers in Halloween; Halloween II; Halloween IV: The Return of Michael Meyers; Halloween V: The Revenge of Michael Meyers; and Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers.

Pleasance also portrays the great cinematic Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld (who has a fluffy white cat and lives in a hollowed out volcano!) in You Only Live Twice. Not the worst legacy to leave behind, if you ask me (Pleasance passed away in 1995).

I love character actors! Brad Dourif, Clancy Brown, Pleasance–I love them all–but Pleasance also had the distinguished nickname of “The Man with the Hypnotic Eye“.
