was in many ways very like Faramir, which is perhaps why they didn't get along. He was scholarly and perceptive, but used his insight for advantage rather than empathy and "was sooner moved to scorn than pity."
I've believed ever since the movies came out that John Noble was completely wrong for the role (much as I like him as an actor); Denethor would much better have been played by someone of the Basil Rathbone/Peter Cushing/Charles Dance sort.
