1. Max von Sydow Let’s start this list off with someone who seems like a no-brainer: Max von Sydow, also known as Father Merrin in The Exorcist. However, I include him because he is the only actor who has ever played both God and Satan. He was Jesus in The Greatest Story Ever Told and Satan in the adaptation of Stephen King’s Needful Things, which is actually pretty good. Any actor with those kind of … Continue reading
