My cousin, who created this site and made every post for a few years, must be some kind of idiot for not having HOOK posted already. I’m going to give him a pass though because I didn’t think about it until right now when I was deep in an IMDB session checking out what Charlie Korsmo got into after acting (went to MIT, worked in missile defense, went to Yale, is now a lawyer).
Almost Famous is so good, and Billy Crudup was great as Russell Hammond. According to his IMDB page Billy “does not want to be a star, he claims. He’s one of those constantly hard-working actors who’ll shoot the movie, and do as little publicity as he can.”
He’s done a pretty good job. I’ve seen 6 of his movies and wouldn’t be able to recognize him if I saw him on the street. Of course, one of those movies was Big Fish and I didn’t even remember that Danny Devito looked like this.
Happy Birthday to Michelle Rodriquez. IMDB says she is, “known for tough-chick roles.” So it’s not a stretch to throw a steesh on her. She’s also known for her DUIs, which wasn’t in her description on IMDB, but we were all thinking it.
Richard Edson is a character actor, perhaps best known for his joyride in Ferris Buehller’s Day Off. He has 95 other credits to his name on IMDB, and I don’t have much time right now, so he might be better known for something else. Does it matter?
