♚ James “Jim” Moriarty

But in calling Moriarty a criminal you are uttering libel in the eyes of the law — and there lie the glory and the wonder of it! The greatest schemer of all time, the organizer of every deviltry, the controlling brain of the underworld, a brain which might have made or marred the destiny of nations — that’s the man! But so aloof is he from general suspicion, so immune from criticism, so admirable in his management and self-effacement, that for those very words that you have uttered he could hale you to a court and emerge with your year’s pension as a solatium for his wounded character. Is he not the celebrated author of The Dynamics of an Asteroid, a book which ascends to such rarefied heights of pure mathematics that it is said that there was no man in the scientific press capable of criticizing it? Is this a man to traduce? Foulmouthed doctor and slandered professor — such would be your respective roles! That’s genius, Watson.
Sherlock Holmes, “The Valley of Fear”

The one thing that mars Andrew Scott’s otherwise terror-inducing Moriarty for me is that he looks so much like the ex-friend who used to come over to my apartment in the middle of the night to sing show tunes and drink all my beer, and who eventually threw pie at me at Denny’s and then stole my favorite lipstick and wrote “Tiresome” on my window with it.
