It wasn't until the climax of 2005's "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" that Voldemort first appeared in the flesh, but it was well worth the wait as we beheld the beastly Death Eater in all his noseless glory.

We're not saying Ralph Fiennes isn't perfect for the role (in fact, Ralph Fiennes IS pretty perfect for the role), but what if the filmmakers had gone elsewhere when casting Voldy?

We did the dirty work and imagined eight other actors as Voldemort.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Johnny Depp

Christian Bale

Denzel Washington

Jude Law

Paul Rudd

Charlie Sheen

The Rock
