    Probably best known for playing villain Hans Gruber.

    I too, remember him for his role as the bad guy in Die Hard... a brilliant, and unique, actor. RIP

    The movie was hilarious, but Alan Rickman played his part like a chronic sourpuss.
    If he did any work where he didn't play the role as a sourpuss, please list them so I can go check them out.

    He can be heard in the song "The Bell".



    The Edinburgh live performance with a different M. C.:
