Bill Nighy can add a splash of fun to any fantasy film, from "Flushed Away" to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." He's even enjoyably outrageous in a small scene-stealing role in "Wrath of the Titans." This weekend, Nighy has the chance to be memorable once again, in "Jack the Giant Slayer." Here he voices the primary head of a two-headed giant named General Fallon. John Kassir, best known for voicing the Crypt Keeper, is his other, lesser half.

Fallon is the latest in a long history of extra-large characters dominating the big screen. Will he rank among the greatest giants, monsters, robots, and legends we've collected below? We'll find out soon.
