Mari @ComicLoverMari The whole point of his character is that he's a villain who is just evil without any redemption Crimson Mayhem @Crimson_Mayhem_ I'm sorry, but I am not a fan of Big Jack Horner. I love his design and he does have an occasional funny lines here and there. But his backstory and motivations as a villain is lame. 6:56 PM - Jan 18, 2023 355.7K Views *** OOH, I SEE IEM! ✪.

I love that Big Jack Horner is just a bad guy. He's not a product of his surroundings. No tragic backstory. No redemption arc. Nothing.

He is a bad guy because he's greedy, ruthless, and maniacal. He is bad because he is bad.


I think John Mulaney’s performance as Big Jack Horner proves my theory that every actor wants the chance to give it their all as a mustache-twirling villain you can love to hate.

Doesn't if you're a comedian or Shakespearean-trained actor. Everyone wants the chance to play the bad guy.
