    The theme of this contest is portrayals of the Devil -- a.k.a. Satan, Lucifer, Mephistopheles, Beelzebub, the Prince of Darkness -- in movies and television. An entry can be dramatic, comedic or musical, as long as it's a portrayal by an actor and not an animated cartoon, comic book or graphic novel. You many enter as many times as you wish.

    Standard avatar rules apply -- maximum dimensions 200 by 200 pixels, maximum file size 1 MB.

    So, here's to the Evil One! My entries:

    Ray Walston as Mr. Applegate from Damn Yankees

    Elizabeth Hurley in Bedazzled (2000 version)

    Is that a puppet or a human actor in costume? If it's a puppet, I'm sorry but it doesn't qualify.

    Let me be more specific about the rules: An entry can be dramatic, comedic or musical, as long as it's a portrayal by a human actor and not an animated cartoon, comic book or graphic novel -- or puppetry.

    Otherwise, all good entries so far -- including some more recent films I've never heard of!

    Thanks for the clarification, it is indeed a puppet so I shall substitute this devil from Santa Claus Vs the Devil:

    Technically, John Candy isn't playing the Devil; it's Steve Martin imagining him as the Devil. But it's such a funny image that . . . oh, what the hell, I'll allow it.

    He's playing the role of the Devil, so it's kosher.

    Damn*, I forgot about that show. Well, the show itself was a bit forgettable, especially since it was so short-lived, but Wise was fantastic in it.

    *no pun intended
