I was just on a thread on IMDb, and got the idea for this thread. This thread is about movies that have been made from books. When reading the book, you get a picture in your mind of what a character looks like / behaves like, etc. Then, when the movie comes-out, you're like: "YES, that's totally how I pictured him (or, her)!"

Jason Isaacs - Lucius Malfoy (Harry Potter movies)
