18. I won a trivia contest with that question once!
Last year on an Alaskan cruise ship, my mom and I entered a trivia contest. Out of a couple hundred people, I was the only one to name Phoebe Cates as the topless girl from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. These people clearly had no idea what a profound impact she had on my adolescence...

6. On a side note:
I'll bet "Stuck in the Middle with You" by Steelers Wheel never sounded quite the same again after viewing Mr. Blonde's scene with the cop. Instant flashback whenever I hear that song.

59. Maybe it's because Silence of the Lambs didn't do much for me...
I think of him in several great roles. I thought he was incredible in Oliver Stone's "Nixon" (10 minutes into the film you totally forgot that he looks nothing like Nixon), and I loved his performance as Burt Munroe in "The World's Fastest Indian."

17. Excellent call on Eric Roberts
The first thing I ever saw Hackman in was Superman, so I always see a little bit of Lex Luthor in his performances, however asinine that might be.

Good call also on Scheider.

Edited on Mon Mar-09-09 06:33 PM by Mike 03
Mariel Hemingway didn't have much good to say about her experience either portraying Dorothy Stratten.

Fosse was a fascinating director. He really liked to inflict pain. Genius/Sadist.

He made Roberts live at the house where the homicide happened during shooting.

and he's damn good at it. i love his rendition of the joker in the batman animated series from the 90's

also, michael ansara as mister freeze is just perfect.

took me a while, but michael rosenbaum as wally west sorta grew on me, he definately captured wally's whole attitude when he started out as the flash. still, i'd like to see how he would have handled playing a kyle rayner version of the green lantern....

"no mrs. mcclain, i am an EXCEPTIONAL theif. and since i'm moving up to kidnapping, you'd best behave."

though i admit having read the books, i cannot see anyone else as snape... though i did entertain thoughts of david bowie as professor gilderoy lockhart... kenneth branaugh stole the show in that film.... i wish they had more of him in it... lockhart's character is hysterical. and for some odd reason i had rowan atkinson for the minister of magic cornelius fudge in my head... and chris barrie (rimmer from red dwarf) as stan shunpike.... too bad the role of kingsley shacklebolt was so serious, lenny henry mighta been funny taking a turn at it.

71. I always pictured Hugh Grant as Lockhart
He's a natural-born fop. Probably too natural. Brannagh played against his usual type and was brilliant.

Bowie as Lockhart is an interesting thought. I don't know if he can pull off a comedic role.

If Andre Braugher could pull off the accent, he'd make a kick-ass Shacklebolt. Frank Pembleton with spells.

but at the same time, she's the one who had Rickman cast even though he's technically about 25 years too old for the part.

67. William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles - The Thin Man
And all the rest in the series. I saw them recently in "Libeled Lady" with Spencer Tracy and Jean Harlow and just kept seeing Powell and Loy as Nick and Nora instead the characters they were supposed to be playing.

79. Sometimes it's how I think of the role as well
Jeff Goldblum as Ernie Kovacks

Gary Bussie as Buddy Holly

It's like I didn't fall in love with Ernie Kovacks. I fell in love with Ernie Kovacks as played by Jeff Goldblum. Ya know?

Come to think of it, the entire cast of the original ST - Shatner, Takei, Kelley, Nichols and Koenig to name the most famous - were linked with those roles for the rest of their careers.

100. walter koenig
did a wonderful job as a nasty, amoral, psi cop in babylon 5, the role was a complete 180 from the nice guy that chekov was portrayed as. so much so, the mere hint that he was in an episode was seen as shit hitting the fan.

101. That's true, but he's still Chekhov first, psi-guy second
Just like Shatner got his Emmy for Boston Legal, but he's still Kirk.
