Top Ten of the Western Bad Guys


Coming in for the final count down to number ten is Al Swearengen played by Ian McShane in Deadwood.  With his lyrical dialogue and scenery chewing tendencies, Swearengen was a coldly confident tyrant, but eventually, beneath the bluster and showy violence, there may be some moral ambiguity for us viewers. As the harsh realities and the body count of the frontier town pile up, it's easy to wonder what state Deadwood would end up in if not for a strongman like Swearengen.
