That may be, but he is in a lot of movies my kids like, so I don't mind at all, really. Not saying he's a great actor but he seems likeable enough.
He doesn't come across as the regular jerkoff Hollywood actor type. Makes some bad movies but , yeah ok, stays out of trouble,
The cane_shaking is heavy in this thread.
I tolerate that deal with the devil flick, on the count of... that Lizzy Hurley
Some great names so far (or I should say "not so great") . . .
Jason Statham always plays the same role. Not bad to look at, but definitely not stretching as an actor.
Peter O'Toole (for the real cane-shakers) was a horrible actor. I couldn't get through Lawrence of Arabia.
Just watched a movie starring Andy Garcia (another one-step pony) about when Mexico tried to ban the Catholic Church (how'd that go??). O'Toole played a priest and so over-acted during his death scene, I started laughing.
Case in point for me. Watching him in FOckers is painful for me. I dont buy it, therefore...painful and labored.
Bracco was always a beautiful chick (fought over by many a hollywood legend), but her delivery is at best off beat and at worst a monosyllabic, stilted excercise in tongue gnashing. Great for porn, not so great for drama.
She should do porn/humor.
That's the appeal of Lorraine Bracco, wierd and sexy, why she was cast as Tony Soprano's crush/psychiatrist.
