Lester Clark is one of the two main antagonists of in the 2013 film Escape Plan (alongside Willard Hobbes). He is the general manager of the Jail Security Firm agency and a wealthy businessman whose only guiding principle is greed. He is also responsible for the abduction of Breslin and bringing him into the Tomb prison facility ship, managed by his right-hand man, Warden Willard Hobbes.
He was portrayed by Vincent D'Onofrio, who is known for portraying The Kingpin in Daredevil, Edgar the Bug in Men in Black, Carl Rudolph Stargher in The Cell, Private Gomer Pyle in Full Metal Jacket, Bob Fittler in Chained, Luca Abele in Dishonored 2, David Hagan in Fire With Fire, and Commander Vic Hoskins in Jurassic World.
He is the general manager of the Jail Security Firm agency and a wealthy businessman who likes to gain money and power and to introduce his main former henchman; Ray Breslin for wardens who their jails are not well secured, which what Breslin is doing. He is also responsible for the abduction of Breslin himself and bringing him into the Tomb prison facility ship, managed by his personal ally Warden Willard Hobbes, which he gets money from him in order to keep Breslin all the time in the Tomb.
Breslin and his business partner Lester "Les" Clark are offered a multi-million dollar deal by CIA agent Jessica Mayer to test a top-secret prison and see if it is escape-proof.
However, this time around, he and his work colleagues are not allowed to know where the prison is, as this helps minimize the risk of outside help when escaping.
Breslin goes against all his own rules and agrees to the deal, allowing himself to be captured in New Orleans, Louisiana, under the guise of a Spanish terrorist named "Anthony Portos."
However, the plan goes awry when his captors remove a tracking microchip from his arm and drug him on the way to the prison, which stops his colleagues from knowing where he has been taken. After that, Breslin was taken to the Tomb, Clark makes everything to hide from Hush and Abigail, his and Breslin's teammates, and that Ray is held inside the Tomb, while he made a deal with Warden Hobbes that if the latter will break Breslin, Clark promised him that he will give Hobbes enough money to produce his prison.
After thinking that Ray is still inside the Tomb and that he was broken by Warden Hobbes, and that he got rid off from Breslin, at a Moroccan airfield, Ross informs Breslin that they discovered Clark was offered a $5 million annual salary to become CEO of the security company, should Breslin's imprisonment prove that the ship is escape-proof. Clark had fled, but Hush tracked him in Miami, and locked him in a container aboard a cargo ship headed for an unknown destination. It is unknown what happened to Clark after he got sent away in a cargo ship that heads for an unknown destination, but it is presumed that Clark, when the container that he was locked in lacks oxygen inside, had suffocated to death in a container during the ship's travel.
In the third film Escape Plan: The Extractors, Clark is revealed to have died inside the cargo ship and his son Lester Jr is out for revenge on Breslin and captures his girlfriend Abigail Ross, who he eventually kills. During their final confrontation Breslin tells Lester Jr. that his father hated him. It's also stated that Clark had actually died from the heat in the container. Clark's death appears not to be common knowledge as another character states earlier in the film that Lester had vanished without a trace.
He acted as a wealthy businessman who likes to gain money and power, despite being running the security company.
