Amanda Plummer

Born March 23, 1957

Amanda Plummer never plays my favorite character in a movie but damn if she isn’t always one of the most interesting actresses on the screen. Her passion for every role she plays shines through and she is memorable. Every single role is just – memorable.

Noteworthy

  • The Fisher King – One of my all-time favorite movies. The whole cast is phenomenal and Amanda Plummer is no exception to this rule.
  • So I Married An Axe Murderer – If you have never watched this flick, it needs to be on your list. Amanda Plummer is so perfect in this role. Plummer weird delivery, mannerisms, and interactions make an already great movie even better.
  • Pulp Fiction – We start and end the movie with a scene including Plummer. She is Honey Bunny. She is going to rob a restaurant with her boyfriend. Her visceral reactions, her emotion, her frantic interactions with the rest of the cast. Love her in Pulp Fiction.

Producers generally don’t like me; directors do, generally. Convincing the producers is hard. They can’t see the commercial value behind such a face, nor would they get a commercial value, necessarily – and I don’t mean that in a good way or a bad way.

Where did all the good commercials go?

Matthew Gray Gubler

Matthew Gray Gubler Born March 9, 1980   Matthew Gray Gubler has long been one of my favorite characters on Criminal Minds. There is something about the character of Spencer Reid, the brains, the wit, the naivete - that makes the character work. But Gubler is a lot...

Michael Rapaport

Michael Rapaport Born March 20, 1970   Michael Rapaport has been around since 1990 as part of our pop-culture. Starting with China Beach, he has appeared on TV, on the big screen, been pumped into your ear on his own podcast and is a documentarian in his own right....

Call Me Lucky

Call Me Lucky is a 2015 documentary about Barry Crimmins. This is his story. The good the bad and the ugly of his life. I added this doc to my queue on Netflix because Bobcat Goldthwait was involved. The first half covers his comedy career - his comedy club - this...
