    Default John Hurt

    John Hurt is best known as playing The Elephant Man. He also starred in All The Little Animals alongside Christian Bale

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Great voiceover artist - I can still hear him doing that AIDS PIF from 1986 "it's just the tip of the iceberg" etc.

    John Hurt was also in ALIEN. The famous chest buster scene.
    Who cared about rules when you were young?

    Mentioned previously, but his role as Quentin Crisp in The Naked Civil Servant was the first time I became aware of him as an actor. He was also very good as Timothy Evans in the chilling Ten Rillington Place and in Midnight Express. Agreed that his voiceover for that AIDS PSA is scary as heck.
