Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy

Do you like Jase as Lucius? Have you imagined Draco's cruel and lofty father like that?

Isaacs is a great actor, he portrays evil in an excellent way (he has played loads of baddies). In the movie, he plays Lucius very well. Althought I han't imagined him like that, I admit his performance is brilliant.

I think Jason Isaacs did a great job playing Lucius Malfoy! He was pretty much as I imagined him- an older version of Draco! Jason acted and looked just like I imagined him. He certainly can play the part of an evil person well!

Jason Isaacs is great!!!!!
The only problem I had is that I liked him too much. I mean, let's admit it, he is fantastic looking. It makes it hard for me to really hate him like I hate the character in the book.
The same thing sort of happened with Snape. Alan Rickman... I mean... come on...
I will try very hard to keep the movie and the books seperate, but now everytime Lucius Malfoy is talked about all I can think about is what a yummy creature Jason is.
Must remember that Lucius Malfoy is very, very evil... but scrumpcious *shut up brain, shut up brain*

Madame Malfoy, I agree with you I must say. He is my favourite actor (Alan Rickman is my favourite as well) and I enjoy all his movies. He really is "so good at being so bad" and can't think about Lucius as a bad, ugly man any more, because he is really charming, though evil...
And you know, I can listen to him forever, his voice is so beautiful.

I like Jason Isaacs too, he does evil so well! But I liked Lucius Malfoy before I ever saw the CoS movie, but then, I have a thing about the Malfoys.

What I liked about Isaacs was his "evil" was rather different than Rickman's "evil". We weren't getting the same kind of thing from two different characters.
I was very impressed.

For some reason I imagined Draco's father to have black hair, despite it was described as blonde. However, Isaccs rose up to my expectations enourmously, he was everything as to how I imagined him. When I re-read the books, I see him, and I imagine him acting that bit. And yes, it works, I can see it immediately. To me this is a good actor.

I agree with you lorna, the evils are very different and it adds depth that it needs for a good story, and in this case, film.

Oh my goodness, he does and excellent job! He is exactly the kind of Lucius I imagined, except with longer hair, ha. A man who is perfectly evil, but also very refined. He is great bad guy! I also loved him in "The Patriot." I bet he really enjoys playing bad guys!

I COMPLETELY agree...I love the last scene, in Dumbledore's office. His eyes look amazing, and his voice is perfect ("and...?" is my favorite part in that conversation)

I don't know whether Jason enjoys playing bad guys, as DWeasley had said but... he does it perfectly! Really I haven't seen an actor who is so good at playing villains yet.
And I watched "The Patriot", too. What can I say here? It was something amazing... But have you seen him in "Sweet November"?

I didn't imagine Lucius like that but I thought Issacs did a fabulous job.

I have to say that I agree with pretty much everyone else here: Jason Issacs is an excellent actor, and no one does "deliciously evil" as well as him.

Insomnia, I did see him in "Sweet November"! Talk about a different kind of role -- a homosexual cross-dresser (and he's really a sweet person too). Whatever he plays, I always love him though.

I didn't imagine Lucius Malfoy to look anything like he did in the movie, but Issacs pulled it off perfectly, and now when I think of the elder Malfoy a picture of Issacs from CoS immediately comes to mind. Alan Rickman, Issacs, and Kenneth Branagh surely raise the acting talent for the Harry Potter movies.

I didn't picture Lucius Malfoy at all while reading the book and Jason Isaacs was a perfect choice. He did a great work and I agree with everyone on that thread.
