Brad Dourif has almost as many serial killer roles in his resume as the United States has actual serial killers. This week, Andrew and Stephen break down the career of one of the hardest working character actors ever. Over a nearly 50 year career, Dourif has acted in prestigious Oscar-winning dramas like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, surreal sci-fi epics such as David Lynch’s Dune and given voice to an evil doll in the Chucky franchise. Others will know him as the Gemini Killer in The Exorcist III, Luther Lee Boggs in The X-Files episode ‘Beyond the Sea’ and as Grima Wormtongue in The Lord of the Rings. A regular collaborator of Werner Herzog as well, Dourif has always sought out challenging work throughout his career.
