What’s the most you ever lost on a coin toss?

From the film “No Country For Old Men”, comes Javier Bardem as the ruthless Anton Chigurh. The Coen brothers sought to cast someone “who could have come from Mars” to avoid a sense of identification. Empire.com ranked him #46 in their list of the 100 Greatest Movie Characters Of All Time, praising the look on his face when he strangles a cop with his own handcuffs. When American novelist Cormac McCarthy wants to throw a dark character at you, it’s a safe assumption that you’re not going to be able to get them out of your head for a good, long while – if ever. With the kind of unholy relentlessness usually reserved for horror icons, the hired killer has an almost supernatural ability to track his prey, and is rather short in the mercy department, preferring to leave the tough decisions to a coin toss. And that bowl cut is utterly terrifying.
