Zorg

A costume fit for a crazy Oldman

Costume designers must love it when they find out they're working with Gary Oldman because he'll wear just about anything. Check out io9's excellent list of Oldman's most out-there movie outfits: The 10 Craziest Costumes Gary Oldman Ever Wore

My personal favorites are the costumes he wore as Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg in The Fifth Element. They were created by French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier.

On a related note, here's what Gary had to say about getting back into his Jim Gordon suit again:
Q: You must be excited in putting on the Commissioner Gordon uniform again soon?
A:  My drab greys and beiges [laughs]. I went to the production offices the other day and there’s all these fantastic pictures across the wall: Catwoman, this, that, and I thought, 'where’s my wall?' I don’t have a wall, I just have a rack of very, very dull clothes [laughs].
