The Lion King

Jeremy Irons Scar ("The Lion King") Irons, who won the 1990 Oscar for playing the infamous Claus von Bulow in "Reversal of Fortune," brings that character's frosty disdain to his role as the evil, murderous Scar in the 1994 Disney hit -- a banished lion who will stop at nothing to become the king of the animal kingdom. In one scene in the film, Irons even reprises one of his famous Claus lines -- "You have no idea." And during his musical number, Scar proclaims "my teeth and ambitious are bared -- be prepared."
