Jason Isaacs in Harry Potter Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy
Jason Isaacs has to have one of the coolest filmography's for an up and coming actor. The guy played the miniscule role of research scientist in Armageddon, later showed up as the English bad guy in The Patriot, then re-appeared in Black Hawk Down, and then caught the biggest role of all-- Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films. Well, his role in the film is not that large due to limited appearances from Malfoy, but the demand from fans couldn't be greater. So what does Jason Isaacs have to say about playing one of the most villainous characters on film?

Isaacs on Malfoy

MTV was able to catch up to Jason Isaacs and get him to speak a few words on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and what he does to prepare himself for the flowing - blonde - hair role of Lucius Malfoy. It turns out that Isaacs takes his role as Lucius Malfoy very seriously, and does what he can to keep the Potter fans hating him. Check out a snippet from the Isaacs discussion below:

To remain in character, the actor has even gone so far as to avoid answering his fan letters. "I'm carefully cultivating an entire generation of people who despise me, because when you're in 'Harry Potter' films you get a lot of fan mail ... I haven't answered any of it, so they will hate me even more than they did to start with. They probably spent their pocket money sending me a stamped, addressed envelope." The British actor recently insisted that while he's enjoyed developing the character, the real payoff will come in the next few films. "Number four is finished. I'm not signed up for number five; I haven't got a script for [it] yet, but I understand I have some things to do in the book and, if they ask me, then I would be hoping to be in it.

To read the whole report, head over to MTV.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire comes to theatres on November 18th, 2005.
