Title: Rutger Hauer.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
All those moments will be lost in time...
like tears in rain...
Time to die."

Ye, apparently he wrote the tears in the rain lines himself.
Didn't see him in enough stuff I think.

And his performance in Blade Runner was so iconic he was offered, and took, some really 'B' list Scfi stuff. :(

I haven't seen much of his stuff but I do remember back in the VHS Age watching Blade Runner with my father, and being totally creeped out by Hauer's performance. RIP.

It's odd that they call Roy the baddy. To me he was the hero fighting for his life.

A very moving and emotional speech which bought tears to rest of the cast and crew watching.

Another great one was in True Romance (1993) Between Dennis Hopper and Christopher Walken “And, and your great-great-great-great grandmother fucked a nigger . . . . .” its another classic and can be seen on youtube.
Can some of you think of others?
Just thought of another . . .The Usual Suspects (1995) Kevin Spacey and Stephen Baldwin . . . Keyser Soze speech.

And his iconic performance in Blade Runner rather type cast him :(
