Hugo Weaving is the Red Skull

Hugo Weaving is one of the best actors and one of the most familiar faces in the area of action-adventure fantasy-sci-fi. He was Agent Smith in The Matrix trilogy, V in V for Vendetta, Elrond in the Lord of the Rings movies, and the voice of Megatron, among many other roles...

In addition to that is that we will soon get to see him as the Marvel comics nazi supervillain named RED SKULL in the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA movie which is currently in pre-production. Marvel Studios is currently in talks with Weaving who is their (so far) only mentioned choice to play the role.

In the Marvel comics, Red Skull has been Captain America’s archenemy since 1941, when he engaged in espionage and sabotage as Hitler’s right-hand man. In his final battle with the superhero, he was buried under the rubble of a bombed building but — as would occur later with Captain America — fell into a state of suspended animation. Both were revived in modern times.
