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 will not be topped and they will go down in the annals of that show. Whether he was dancing as a Chippendales dancer with Patrick Swayze or living in a van down by the river – he was always on.
  • Tommy Boy – He and David Spade were made to make movies together. His man-child act at its greatest.
  • Beverly Hills Ninja – If you don’t like this movie you have no soul and you probably don’t know funny. The great white ninja – cracks me up just thinking about it.

People… need a time to laugh. It’s up to us to bonk ourselves on the head and slip on a banana peel so the average guy can say, ‘I may be bad, honey, but I’m not as much of an idiot as that guy on the screen.’

Ali Larter

Ali Larter Born February 28, 1976   Ali Larter, cheerleader in a whipped cream bikini... what is not to like. All kidding aside, she was terrific in Varsity Blues and much more than the character let on. Noteworthy Varsity Blues - Darcy the cheerleader. Again,...

Burt Reynolds

Burt Reynolds Born February 11, 1936   Burt Reynolds! There is almost nothing more that I can say about him. His name might as well be a noun, pronoun, and verb. I cannot say that he should be an adverb... but maybe. Love his movies and whether you hate his...
