Anthony Hopkins in Thor
Playing: Odin, one-eyed king of the Norse gods and father of Thor
Oscar-winning Role: Hannibal Lecter, jailed serial killer with an unusual diet, in The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Typecasting Alert? Lecter, like Odin, lives in a secluded place yet seems to be omnisciently aware of everything happening outside his little realm.
