Haley Joel Osment

Noteworthy

  • Forrest Gump – Osment comes in toward the end of this movie playing Gump’s son. You could really see how good of an actor he was and was going to be. There was so much of the Forest Gump character in his characterization that it was a little spooky.
  • The Sixth Sense – This could act his balls off. He and Bruce Willis were wonderful together and he sold so well you didn’t guess the plot twist at all.
  • Pay It Forward – Maybe my favorite of all of his films. This is such a tearjerker, such a well crafter movie. Osment shines from the opening to the close – well almost to the close.
  • AI: Artificial Intelligence – Another huge role for a very young actor. Not ever at the very top of anybody’s list but it is a good watch nonetheless.
  • Tusk & Yoga Hosers – Here are my two newest favs. Kevin Smith’s Northern Horror Trilogy. These are unbelievably good and fun to watch. Old school rubber monster horror at its 21st century best.

The best advice my dad ever gave me is that acting is believing. Acting is not acting. It isn’t putting on a face and dancing around in a mask. It’s believing that you are that character and playing him as if it were a normal day in the life of that character.

What if the Flintstones Were More Realistic?

Slate.com had a great review of DC Comics new version of The Flintstones. Gone is the goofy group of cave people that lived in a little town called bedrock. Wilma and Fred are still here but they are less like the Honey Mooners and more up to date in a 1 million year...

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....

Michael B Jordan

Michael B Jordan Born February 9, 1987   Michael B Jordan is one of those actors that has already made a huge impact early in his career. From working with Sly Stallone on Creed to being in his second Marvel Comics Movie (Black Panther) you can bet that we will...

Russell Crowe

Russell Crowe Born April 7, 1964   Lorem ipsum Noteworthy The Quick and the Dead - I LOVE this movie. Crowe plays a former gunslinger forced to be one again. He is in a quick draw competition set up by Gene Hackman. Maybe not his best role but a flick that I...

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...
