Which of These 10 Celebrities Best Pull Off the Horns on their Head?

Daniel Radcliffe (above) is set to star in Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) Horns, based on the Joe Hill novel. Radcliffe seems to be trying really hard to distance himself from his Harry Potter character, going so far in Horns to play an accused rapist and murderer. But he's not the real killer, of course: He wakes up one morning with horns on his head and some weird powers, which he uses to try and track down the actual killer. Here's the full first look of Radcliffe in Horns.


For the purposes of this post, let's say that horns are the big new trend in Hollywood (they are not, but play along, damnit). And so I ask, of the celebrities below, which best pulls off the horns?

Angelina Jolie in Maleficent


James McAvoy in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe


Harvey Keitel in Little Nicky


Dave Grohl in Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny


Jim Breuer in Goat Boy


Tim Curry in Legend


Ray Park in Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace


Ron Perlman in Hellboy

  • F'mal DeHyde

    I'm going to vote for Darth Maul but it has to be a full body shot during a fight scene because the man moves like a big cat. I'm still mourning his early demise.

  • Morgan_LaFai

    How is Tim Hiddleston's Loki not on this list? Cause this should be on the list.
    Is it cause his horns are on his helmet not attached to his forehead? Cause if so that's a foolish reason not to have him on this list. Cause this really belongs on the list. Hell, he was the first person that popped into my mind when I clicked on the header link.

  • dahlia6

    Tim Frickin' Curry. There shall be only one, and he shall haunt my nightmares until the heat death of the universe.

  • Elfrieda

    Tim Curry. Always. In everything.

  • Kip Hackman

    Starting at the top, including Daniel Radcliffe:
    Super Yes
    Not so much
    Extra Yes
    No (it's the ears)
    Clearly the winner, I can't say Yes hard enough
    Yeah, props for having more than usual
    Oh yes.
    I don't know who that is, but the horns don't work. The rest of the costume works, but the horns do not.

  • tamatha_uhmelmahaye

    I was hoping Tim Curry in Legend would be on this list!

  • Crappola. If you hadn't told me that was Daniel Radcliffe, I would have said it was Callum Blue.

  • e jerry powell

    Callum Blue is far too un-cute for that.

  • Poppycock!

    Exhibits A & B. Same dimples, same nose, only eye color and eyebrow bushiness separates them.

    I call separated at birth.

  • e jerry powell

    That and about twelve years...

  • stardust

    If Tim Curry is on a list, he always wins. Therefore, Tim Curry has the best horns.

  • Ted Zancha

    Grohl, Grohl, Grohl.

    Curry already gets the win for freakiest friggin clown. Give the horns to Grohl.

  • Mrs. Julien
  • Blake

    Dean Pelton? Gay Marrige!


  • Hellooooo Mr. Radcliffe.

  • PerpetualIntern

    Dare I say it....a bit horny??

  • celery

    I find him at least 20x more attractive in that picture than I ever have before.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    I know, right?!?! He's looking...kind of... sexy.

  • Sara_Tonin00
  • L.O.V.E.

    Are we having addition problems with these "Ten" lists again?

  • L.O.V.E.

    To fill out the list, I nominate this buffalo from Dances with Wolves.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Ta- tonka?!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I think it's "Tatanka".

  • L.O.V.E.

    A-Plus! But you can call her by her stage name, Buffy. I hear she landed a role in The Lone Ranger. She is blowing up.


  • What??!?? They blew up a buffalo for The Lone Ranger? Someone get PeTA on speed dial.

  • Lindzgrl

    I read the book a while ago, so maybe I'm remembering wrong, but wasn't that intro a bit of a spoiler? He blacks out the night the girl is raped and killed, too, so he doesn't actually know if he did it or not—right?

  • calliope1975

    I'm pretty sure he knows he didn't rape and kill her. And SPOILER, I think he finds the real killer fairly early on. I might be remembering that wrong though.

  • Lindzgrl

    Oh, maybe you're right...Maybe I need to re-read this before the movie comes out!

  • Snath

    Ron Perlman. Like you ever have to fucking ask.

  • Anna von Beav

    I was all "DUH TIM CURRY 5EVA" and then I got to Ron Perlman and I was all "...wait..."

  • L.O.V.E.

    Looking at Selita Ebanks is giving me major horn.

  • TOB

    Looking at Selita Ebanks is aggravating my OCPD - why are her breasts at different latitudes?

  • Vincent D'onofrio's hair horns in The Cell

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Not if he looks like a slug.

  • This list is remarkably robust. With the appropriate inclusion of the smile break that is goat-boy, there's a decided lack of groan-inducing ones.

    Oh, Daniel, I worry for the roles you're going to take, both because you want to be taken seriously as anyone-but-HP, but also, you're so tiny! Maybe you and Ellen Page have to star together in everything.

  • zeke_the_pig


  • zeke_the_pig

    I mean - Dave Grohl. Because metal.

  • Maguita NYC

    I see happy hour started earlier today for Zeke?

    I'm still partial to Andy Hallett's Lorne in Angel. Or any of the horned ones on Angel's final TV season for that matter.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Every hour's happy hour with zeke. ...or I might've just accidentally scrolled down too quickly and posted the first word that came to mind before actually reading the post...

  • Blake

    Monica Bellucci?

  • zeke_the_pig

    Monica Bellucci in everything, forever. Horns or no horns who gives a shit.

  • RudeMorgue

    Oh my GOD that red dress. I'll be in my bunk.

  • damnitjanet

    Tim Curry wins. Always.

  • BWeaves

    Ron Perlman for the win, although McAvoy looks like a demented Bilbo.

    Also, I don't think the "horns" are in that last pic. They're in the person looking at the photo.

  • Agreed. From a personal standpoint, that last pic was all about the horns.

  • mats19

    McAvoy looked/ acted like a creepy child rapist in that movie and that's ALL I can ever think about.

  • Bewegung951

    There is a large, Loki-shaped hole in this list.

  • TK

    In the interest of fairness, Loki wears a horned helmet. He doesn't actually have horns.

  • ZombieMrsSmith

    So, does Maleficent actually have horns, or is that just a horned turban? Play fair.

  • TK

    Hell if I know.

  • Haystacks

    But he does pull them off rather magnificently. Generally and kind of Superhero-related headwear just makes you look like an idiot. (See Magneto)

  • TK

    And Captain America, for that matter.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Perlman and Curry. However they're all fake and therefore just playing at evil. True evil doesn't wear horns. See? *points to head*

  • Em

    Michael fassbender in the blind pilots music video!

  • NanooNanoo

    It's your fault I watched that video. I was never so confused.

  • NoPantsMcLane


  • Kala

    Tie between Ron Perlman and Tim Curry, who scared the bejeesus out me in...well, damn near every role he's ever taken, really.

  • celery

    Even Wadsworth?

  • TheOriginalMRod

    Oh, definitely Tim Curry.

    ..and yes... Hellboy.

  • Cara

    Ron Perlman in Hellboy!!

  • @TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin:disqus you're so tiny! Maybe you and Ellen Page have to star together in everything. WWW.GetPositionBetweenMilliona...

  • southworth

    Ron Perlman. Oh, he's not on the list? GO TO HELL

  • TK

    Alas, Dustin has... issues... with Hellboy. I do not however, and so... FIXED!

  • celery

    What are Dustin's issues with Hellboy?

  • TK

    He hates it, because he's a dickface with no soul.

  • Jezzer

    I'm not going to say that someone who hates Hellboy is someone who'd eat a puppy, but Rowles totally eats puppies. And then he picks his teeth with their tiny bones.

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    You show him who runs this bitch, TK.
