"You fool!" John Glover barks at a waiter who has just brought the wrong bowl of soup to the corner table of a Los Feliz restaurant. The waiter corrects his mistake and walks abruptly away, prompting Glover to call after him, "You knew I was kidding, right?" Then, the aside: "I've always wanted to say that to a waiter. They do it in movies all the time."

When John Glover was offered the role of comedic villain Daniel Clamp in "Gremlins 2: The New Batch," opening Friday, he quickly went out and rented the hit original. "I only watched about a fourth of it because I got scared," he admits. "There was a nice dog in it and I kept thinking that something was going to happen to the dog." Nothing happens to man's best friend in "Gremlins 2," though the two-legged residents of New York City aren't so lucky.

Imagine you are an actor with 20 years of stage and film work behind you. You are cast in a play as a workaholic composer of modern operas who is struck down by a heart attack, and then a stroke. This results in aphasia--the inability to use or understand words. The character slowly recovers through the rest of the play, putting the pieces and the words back together. As an actor, virtually none of your lines make literal sense. Your job is to give them, and the character, emotional sense.

John Glover was so bad last year that he accumulated such tags as "The man moviegoers love to hate" (Playboy), "Everyone's Favorite Bad Guy" (Premiere) and "The Prime Rotter of the '80s" (Pauline Kael). The rub: Glover's not so sure he wants to be crowned the King of Cads. "I love it, but--well, I know there are some people who will abuse it, who'll stick me in a pigeonhole," the 44-year-old actor said.

Australian officials on Thursday invoked the country's Cultural Heritage Act of 1986 for the first time and refused to grant an export permit for an Australian painting that sold at auction to an American for $1.4 million, the highest price ever paid for an Australian artwork. "The Bath of Diana," a 1937 painting by John Glover, was sold to an unidentified American at auction in April.
