Although he played Lestat, many consider Collateral to be the first film with Cruise as an antagonist. Lestat may have had ulterior motives, but Cruise’s Vincent is a cold-blooded killer who isn’t afraid to enlist a weary taxi driver (Jamie Foxx) to ferry him about Los Angeles against his will in order to carry out five hits.  Cruise and Foxx’s compatibility is what makes this film so gripping. Not only did Cruise play the bad guy, but he hit it out of the park.
