    Gollum was'nt evil per say...More twisted by the ruling ring....Melkor/Morgoth made,Balrogs,Dragons,tortured and twisted captured Elves into the Orc race and scared men into believing Illuvators gift to men(death beyond middle earth)was a curse....Hence the downfall of Numminor....Morgoth by a mile..

    I'd have to say Grima Wormtongue is my favorite. Mainly because he's a traitor, and besides I pitied him. At times he didn't seem to want to stay on the side of evil.

    Witchking of Angmar while riding his winged terror. Come on, he's terrifying! He made Gandalf his bitch...temporarily.

    I went with Saruman as he in my eyes is the most interesting character, and with his attcking the Shire even after all is lost for him, you see just how far he has fallen. While he is not the incarnation of evil like Sauron and Morgoth, I like how you can see how he has, or at least had, human sides.

    Usuaully I'd voted Gollum but in my opinion he's not evil in the first place.

    I picked other cause I'm a loser and haven't finished reasing the whole books. My fave is the goblin/orc/uruk commander in the big battle scene. Don't know why, but he amuses me.

    Witch-King - Lord of the Nazgûl - Wraith-king; just beacuse he is so fierce looking with that helmet and the giant mace and he rides that totally awesome Nazgul! It is unclear in the books if he is killed by Eowyn... but I LOVED in the movie where he says "No man can kill me" and Eowyn ripps off her helmet and says " I AM NO MAN!!" Wow! Moviemaking at its finest!!

    Saruman
    He just represents a corrupted soul. He is just sooo cool, in the books and in the film. His magic is cooler than Gandalf's and he is a master of deception, secretly defying Sauron himself. Saruman is obviously the BEST Evil charcater. (though Gollum and Grima are also cool)

    Either Gollum or Saruman, both great characters in their two separate ways.

    I think Saruman, since he was a traitor.

    I know this comment is like 3 years old, but I'm pretty sure Jim was talking about Shelob.
