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.

Sherilyn Fenn

Sherilyn Fenn - Born February 1, 1965 Sherilyn Fenn first popped on to my radar and a lot of other peoples when she was starring in Twin Peaks in the early 90s. This show was a huge change in TV and it still holds up to a re-watch or two or three. Noteworthy Twin...

This Ain’t Your Daddy’s Freebird

It never fails, I’m walking through a farmers’ market and I hear someone in a hushed tone say ‘oh my god, did you see how much that (fill in the blank) was?’  Usually, it is because of an $18 hen, $8 dozen eggs, or a $38 New York strip.  These prices seem...
