There aren't many scary characters in the Coens' Southern reimagining of The Odyssey. Everett McGill (George Clooney) and company generally get in their own way just as much as anyone else does. Big Dan Teague is the major exception. The smooth talking Bible salesman is the film's Cyclops, a one-eyed brute. He predictably resorts to violence not long after meeting our hapless heroes.
Viewers quickly learn that his violent outburst is only the tip of the iceberg, when Teague trades his seersucker suit for a Klan hood.
