Meet Edgar in This Scene We Love from ‘Men in Black’

Scenes We Love: Men in Black

It’s Sunday afternoon, time to celebrate another scene we love in our weekly column, Scenes We Love. With the release of Men in Black III — a threequel that turned out to be far more fun than anyone expected — we thought it appropriate to take a look back at the franchise from whence it has come. But as we watched Men in Black II, we didn’t exactly find any scenes worth sharing. Lets all just agree that the second film was no good and skip right back to the beginning, to the birth of the series’ first (and still most entertaining) villain, Edgar. In what is, in the opinion of this writer, his most odd but entrancing contemporary performance, Vincent D’Onofrio shows up as the domestically abusive country bumpkin who is sucked into a whole by a big alien bug and spit out anew nothing but a hilarious meat suit. He became the heartbeat of Barry Sonnenfeld’s tooney 1997 film, a performance amplified by Rick Baker and David Leroy Anderson’s Academy Award winning make-up effects.
