Professor Severus Snape, Dr. Lazarus, the Metatron, Sheriff George of Nottingham, Hans Gruber, and the list goes on. What is your favorite role played by the late Alan Rickman?

Rickman, who graced both stage and screen with his fantastic talents, lost his battle with cancer at the age of 69. His brought life to some fantastic characters over the years in 'Die Hard', the 'Harry Potter' series, 'Dogma', and may more. But one of my favorites is the role he played in the cult classic 'Galaxy Quest'!

He plays an out-of-work actor from a previously successful sci-fi series, much like 'Star Trek'. While he and his former castmates bounce from convention to convention to make a few bucks, they actually end up in space! Starring alongside Daryl Mitchell, Sam Rockwell, Tony Shalhoub, Sigourney Weaver and Tim Allen, this movie combines loads of satire, comical sci-fi, and tons of comedy!

Well, Alan, at least now you'll never have to say that stupid line again! Rest in peace.
