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.

Seth Green

Seth Green - Born February 8, 1974 Seth Green should be in more stuff. Whether he is creating (Robot Chicken) or acting (Without a Paddle), Seth Green always brings a smile to my face. Noteworthy Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery - Scott Evil makes this...
