51. Yes, a scumbag! In another thread,

which was about "unabashed political liberal" actor Burt Lancaster, who was chairman of the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California and on Nixon’s “Enemies List”:

During the late 1950s John Wayne approached Lancaster, suggesting they make a western together. Lancaster laughed off the idea, suggesting they would need Kirk Douglas in the film as well. In reality, Lancaster would not work with Wayne, Hollywood's most prominent Republican supporter who had been actively involved in the McCarthy witch hunts as a founding member and later President of the right-wing Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals.

70. The creator of the show actually addressed this

 

The real Nucky was large and stocky like Gandolfini, but they didn't bother asking because they figured that was the last role he would want to take after The Sopranos.

I think Buscemi does a great job. He's put in his time and deserves a leading role for a change.

Decent cast all around, except for Arthur. Him, I wanted to drop kick.

67. The butterface guy

from Citizen Kane. I can't get any more specific then that. Well the actor I'm thinking of, IMO, was overacting.

69. Anything OJ Simpson was in

Loved the "Naked Gun" movies, but now it's kind of creepy to watch him.

75. Glen Campbell in the

original True Grit. UGH doesn't justifiably describe it. How and why he received an Oscar nomination for that disgrace is beyond me. I like the guy as a singer, but holy geez........that's what he should have stuck with, singing.

85. She didn't ruin the movie, but in "Amadeus"

the woman who played Mozart's wife Constanza completely and utterly sucked. Just sucked. She may be a good actress, but this was a horrible portrayal.
