Let's not forget, he's also played Frankenstein's monster, Grigori Rasputin, Fu Manchu, both Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, Ramses the First and Second, the Jabberwock, the Grim Reaper, Lucifer, Lord Summerisle in the original Wicker Man, and Willy Wonka's father (yeah, I know it was a misbegotten idea, but still) . He's acted in over 200 feature films, and that's not even counting his TV and video-game voice-over work. On top of that, he was in the SAS Special Forces, the Special Operations Executive and the Long Range Desert Group during his service in World War II, and he's fluent in at least ten languages.

So, yeah.....Christopher Lee is truly, indisputably a badass. I think we can all agree on that.

He is also the only cast member of the lord of the rings to have met J.R.R. Tolkien

User avatar #128 to #18 - rawrursaurus (03/02/2014) [-]
Hes done more in the last ten years then i will in my life. This makes me sad.
User avatar #129 to #18 - grebllejk (03/02/2014) [-]
He's fluent in 5 (English, German, French, Italian and Spanish) and can get around with 3 more (Swedish, Greek and Russian). Fun fact, he also volunteered in the Finnish Winter War. And he is part of an Italian noble family (so to the people who say you have to be pretty much noble to have lineage to Charlemagne, he is).
All hail Christopher Lee, master of the universe

User avatar #5 to #1 - monswine (03/01/2014) [-]
that's just plain factually incorrect.
User avatar #8 to #1 - listerthepessimist (03/01/2014) [-]
as if I've only just realised this is Christopher Lee
User avatar #117 - arkadia (03/02/2014) [-]
Only cast member of LOTR to actually meet J.R.R Tolkien
User avatar #132 to #117 - onderdonk (03/02/2014) [-]
Tolkien's cousin. Read LotR once a year. When filming the movie and Saruman is supposed to stab wormtongue in the back, they told wormtongue to yell real loud. Christopher Lee says, "That's not the sound a man makes when he gets stabbed in the back." alpha as ****
#154 to #132 - anon (03/02/2014) [-]
It's the other way around. Wormtongue stabs Saruman in the back, and Christopher Lee played it differently to the way Peter Jackson wanted, because he knew better.
User avatar #167 to #154 - onderdonk (03/02/2014) [-]
Ah, right you are. Still, it was Lee who said it.
#25 - whyamihereagain (03/01/2014) [-]
Heh. A knighthood they say.
He received ******* two knighthoods, from the Orders of the Birtish Empire and of Saint John of Jerusalem, respectively.
User avatar #13 - aabbccddeeffgghhii (03/01/2014) [-]
When ever someone says something like "Nazi Hunter" I think that person deserves any damn job he wan'ts. Actor? Sure! Knight of the Realm? Why not! Heavy Metal Musician? ******* go for it!

I'm not sure I want to call it exactly metal, but he sure can sing, I would love to hear him cover Lou Reed's sing "Perfect Day"

The game the whole family can play.
User avatar #6 to #4 - monswine (03/01/2014) [-]
no, statistics.
User avatar #20 to #6 - metalmind (03/01/2014) [-]
Wrong statistics ignoring social facts.
User avatar #19 to #3 - metalmind (03/01/2014) [-]
No, it actually doesn't.
That "study" or "calculation", is wrong.
First of all, it supposes that distance, especially between comoners did not matter, and that class did not matter e.g. that it's just as likely that some dutch sheepshagger marries a southern german dutchess as that that dutches marries a count.

Although Charlemagne and several of his decendants had multiple partners (at once), all of their decendants, even the illegitimate ones, were of nobility, and up till basically the 18th century married only among themselves.
Also, it presupposes an equal number of decendants, and that no lineage ever dies out.
So unless you're at least partially of nobility (I am) , you can't claim with 100% certainty that you're decended from charlemagne.

That's pure and utter ******** , based on wrong assumptions and wrong calculations.

i heard it on QI.
i belevie Stephen Fry over you and always will, you big FannyFace
#151 to #24 - anon (03/02/2014) [-]
QI gets a lot wrong. Thats why every series they post a list of addendums correcting themselves.

It's a show for entertainment first and knowledge second. I love it but they purposefully go for information that relies on technicalities and specific interpretations of data. Stephen Fry is a legend, but he's just as susceptible as anyone to be taken in by an official-looking report containing ******** . Metalmind explained the reasons why the report fails - all it requires is for you to use your brain and actually glance at it, rather than blindly following the TV.

He's right, by the way.

You have no idea how bastards work
Charlemagne didn't acknowledge any of his bastards, so if he had knocked up some prostitute, the son would remain a commoner
#165 - Paczilla ONLINE (03/02/2014) [-]
I think he sucks
#133 - anon (03/02/2014) [-]
yeah, Sean Connery is so cool
