Mark Lanegan, right, seen here as half of the Gutter Twins.
In the eternal contest of who's got the freakiest, darkest eyes on the planet, our good friend and Screaming Trees founder Mark Lanegan has been pushed aside by a quiet demon named Mathieu Amalric, villain in the latest Bond flick, Quantum of Solace. Should have seen this coming. The last time he cozied up to Daniel Craig, in Munich, we saw his potential. But it wasn't until he posed as a green-speaking earth-scorcher in Solace that his ascension was complete. Wait, Amalric's character, Dominic Greene, is the leader of an environmental advocacy and charity group whose real passion is fleecing the poor and the thirsty? Only a matter of days till we read about the first carbon-offset company pocketing the cash and creating holographic wind turbines.
Mathieu Amalric, scaring the neighbors since 1965.
