Clint Howard

Clint Howard

Clint Howard

Born April 20, 1959

Clint Howard has been acting, small screen and large screen, since he was a child. His unique look, his acting chops, and the fact that he has been literally acting for his entire life makes Howard someone to look like whenever he shows up in a movie.

Noteworthy

  • Star Trek (TOS) – Balok – Howard played an alien and an adversary to Kirk and the Enterprise.
  • Gentle Ben – This was the first place that I remember seeing Clint Howard. I saw it in reruns but I do remember my mom telling me that he was Opie’s brother off the Andy Griffith Show.
  • Tango & Cash – Howard has a brief cameo in this 80s action film.
  • Backdraft – Another cameo and you can see in his career that it has become a badge of honor having Clint Howard show up in your movie.
  • Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me – He has one of the best running bits in all of these movies. The radar operator bit is a classic.

One of my earliest memories is being inside the recording studio and I see the shadow of a figure that looks an awful lot like Walt Disney. Then the door opened and Mr. Disney walked in and said, ‘Hi Clint.’ I won’t ever forget that.

Chris Farley

Chris Farley Born February 15, 1964   Chris Farley... I don't know where to start. I miss Chris Farley. He was funny as hell. He was as good a physical comedian as anyone ever saw. Noteworthy Saturday Night Live - Some of his skits on SNL are the funniest ever. They...

Jordan Peele

Jordan Peele Born February 21, 1979   Jordan Peele is a truly funny guy. He is a truly talented guy. He is going to be around hopefully stretching his horror movie leanings for a long time to come. Noteworthy King of the Internet Short/Skit Show - Go look for Key and...

Ed Helms

Ed Helms - Born January 24, 1974 Ed Helms is one of my favorite performers alive today. I say, performer, because he is way more than just an actor. Whether he is improvising, singing, or acting, Ed Helms is one of those people that brings a smile to your face. As...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Born February 17, 1981   Joseph Gordon-Levitt just keeps getting more interesting and broadening his artistic sights. It seems as if there is nothing that he will not try and when he tries it... well he rocks it. Noteworthy Snowden - JGL take son...
Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Born April 14, 1977

Sarah Michelle Gellar is was and will always be Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Now that that is out of the way. SHe is super talented and has been involved in a lot of other projects. Very seldom do I go with the 4 “known for” spots on IMDB but they are my favorites so I am rolling with those.

Noteworthy

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Freaking Buffy! This is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. For 7 seasons she was all girl power all the time. Though I would still claim the show was really about the redemption of Spike.
  • Cruel Intentions – SMG as a bad girl. We knew she had it in her.
  • Scooby-Doo – There is not a better Daphne then SMG. This cast was perfect together and it is my favorite of the live-action Scooby-Do movies.
  • I Know What You Did Last Summer – Though she was not the lead in IKWYDLS, she was so stinking good in this. Not as good as Scream but SMG kicked it up a notch.

I actually go to the gym much more now than I did when I was on Buffy. I like to stay fit, because that’s when I feel really healthy. But I never worked out for any kind of image. People have said to me, ‘Do you starve yourself before photo shoots?’ And I always say, ‘No way.! That’s what airbrushing is for. I had french fries last night.’

Top 5 Kevin Smith Movies

I have a bit of a problem when it comes to Kevin Smith projects. By projects, I am including any directing, writing, acting, podcast, whatever. I am a devotee. He cracks me up. Part of it is the fact that we are around the same age and have some of the same influences...

Ark: Survival Evolved – PS4

You Hate Anchovies You Say- Balderdash!

Nicholas Brendon

Nicholas Brendon

Nicholas Brendon

Born April 12, 1971

Nicholas Brendon , playing Xander, was one of my favorite characters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The episode entitled The Zeppo is the best Xander-centric episode in my opinion. The whole plot revolves around him and it isTV perfection.

Xander Quotes

  • Who’s a little fear demon? Come on, who’s a little fear demon?
  • Are you ready to get down, you funky party weasel?
  • You know what day is great for a break-up? Any day but Valentine’s Day!
  • I don’t handle rejection well. Funny, considering all the practice I’ve had, huh?
  • I’m sorry, but let’s not forget that I hated Angel long before you guys jumped on the bandwagon. So I think I deserve a little something for not saying ‘I told you so’ long before now. And if Giles wants to go after the, uh, fiend that murdered his girlfriend, I say, ‘Faster, pussycat, kill, kill.

It was nice to make things right, and I went to prom and actually had a good time in the TV world – the real world wasn’t so much fun.

Like a C5 Like a C5 Rocket

On this day, 1962, NASA made a big announcement. They said they were gonna rocket it Like a C5 Like a C5 Rocket. Ok, forgive my bit of punniness, but I am and always have been a fan of the US Space Agency, NASA. In 1962 they did announce that they were going to create...

Emma Caulfield

Born April 8, 1973

Emma Caulfield, playing Anya on Buffy the Vampire Slayer was just one of the many reasons that I loved that show. SHe was the humor, the passion, and part of the Scooby Gang – or at least Scooby adjacent. For the noteworthy, I would like to present some of my favorite quotes from Anya on BtVS.

Anya Quotes

  • Why can’t you just masturbate like the rest of us?
  • I know you like me. I’ve seen you looking at my breasts.
  • And frankly, it’s ludicrous to have these interlocking bodies and not… interlock.
  • I promise to love you, to cherish you, to honor you, uh, not to obey you, of course, because that’s anachronistic and misogynistic and who do you think you are, like a sea captain or something?
  • I mean, I for one didn’t want to start my day with a slaughter.
  • I don’t understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she’s, there’s just a body, and I don’t understand why she just can’t get back in it and not be dead anymore! It’s stupid! It’s mortal and stupid! And, and Xander’s crying and not talking, and, and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she’ll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why.

There’s no adventure in knowing the outcome of who you’re supposed to be with.

-Emma Caulfield

Robert Downey Jr

Robert Downey Jr

Born April 4, 1965

Robert Downey Jr (RDJ from here on out) has become much more of an actor than in the 2.0 version of his career than he was during the original version. I don’t think that he is necessarily a better actor but I think he has allowed himself to be a more consciously good person and that has come throughin his work. Below is a very limited take on some of my favs of RDJ.

I think that we all do heroic things, but hero is not a noun, it’s a verb.
