A.W. Merrick- Deadwood

This list is supposed to be about the chracters not the actors themselves, but in this case it was difficult to separate the pedophile from the character. Deadwood is one of my favorite TV shows of all-time, but its disgusting how they cast a convicted pedo.

7. Yeardley Smith

Actress | The Simpsons

Offbeat comic actress and voice specialist Yeardley Smith has made a virtue out of her odd looks, small figure and distinctive, child-like nasal tones.

Takeshi Kovacs- Altered Carbon

Joel Kinneman killed it as Tak Kovacs in Season 1, but when Anthony Mackie took over the reigns in Season 2 his interpretation ruined the show for me. Mackie was completely robotic and showed no emotional range other than anger which was the complete opposite of Kinneman's version. Whether it was just bad writing, bad acting, or a comibination of both.

Enrique 'Kiki' Camarena- Narcos Mexico

Michael Pena's a great actor so this rating isn't a reflection of him. Kiki constantly put his family at risk to fight a drug war in a different country. He treated his son like crap, making fun of him how he played baseball, nearly missed his daughters birth to chase down a maurijuana field and was constantly abandoning his pregnant wife. This character just showed no redeeming qualities, and in a show full of villians, Kiki bothered me the most. Kiki was supposed to be the "hero" of the story but his ego and drive to make a name for himself probably caused the most deaths.
