John Noble, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King (2003)
Mired in mourning, Denethor has let his stewardship of Minas Tirith sink into a sea of corruption and bad advice.
Upon seeing his unconscious son Faramir (David Wenham), he cracks and makes up a funeral pyre for him and his boy. Unfortunately, Faramir’s not actually dead.
“No tomb for Denethor and Faramir. No long, slow sleep of death embalmed. We shall burn, like the heathen kings of old.”
Um, no. Thwarted, Denethor makes a dash for it, only to throw himself off the giant fortress.
