This is pretty much how I know Rick James, as played by Dave Chappelle. Thanks to Chappelle’s Show, a younger generation of people who have no business knowing who Rick James is can tell what his favorite drug was (cocaine).
Robin Williams heard that I posted Dustin Hoffman’s mustache from Hook last week and promptly grew a mustache of his own. No matter what you think of him, you’d have to admit it’s a nice looking tickler.
I have mixed feelings about Robin Williams. I remember watching one of his stand-up specials in high school and thinking, “Man that’s a lot of water bottles,” before falling asleep.
As an actor, he is all over the place. He obviously great in Mrs. Doubtfire and Jack but then you look at some of the other garbage he was in like Old Dogs and RV and you wonder how much does cocaine actually cost?
If you couldn’t tell, I watched Boogie Nights last night…. for the first time. I suppose it’s no surprise that a movie about the pornography industry in the 1970s and 80s would be stupid with mustaches.
Here is Alfred Molina who had a small but terrific role in Boogie Nights. Now whenever I picture a drug dealer’s house it will always have an Asian man lighting off firecrackers one at a time.
In 1978, Tim Allen was arrested for trying to sell a cop 1.5 pounds of cocaine. He was sentenced to 5 years in prison, of which he served 2.5 years because the warden was a fan of his steesh. I guess he took that time to develop his edgy comedy where he points out the differences between men and women.
