Today is Kristen Wiig’s birthday. I was going to give her a steesh, but I decided to just do the whole gang from Bridesmaids. This might be my Last Supper.
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.
Famous people, especially Academy Award winning actors, are usually granted a few passes from the general public if they do something terrible. It’s a shame that Cuba Gooding Jr. used his passes on Boat Trip and Daddy Day Camp because he could use one after assaulting a woman in New Orleans.
According to everything I’ve read about the situation (which is about one third of that article above) Cuba Gooding Jr. became upset when people were taking pictures of him at a bar. He then put on a Winnie the Pooh costume and started yelling, “Show me the honey!!” When a bartender asked him to leave he slammed a jar of honey on her head, thus resulting in the assault charge.
Again, I didn’t read the whole article so that might not be the exact story.
I’d bet that 95% of the posts I make on Monday have to do with a mustache I saw in a movie the previous weekend. Here is Ben Falcone, Melissa McCarthy’s love interest in Bridesmaids, and real life husband.
I just caught the end of the movie, but it was enough to remind me that this fine gentleman sported a steesh.
Here’s a clip of Ben on Conan talking about the end credit scene where he and Melissa McCarthy ruin some perfectly good sandwiches:
Darren Aronofsky is the director of such films as Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler and Black Swan, among others. I have no doubt in my mind that this mustache was grown during the filming of Black Swan, specifically during the time he directed the erotic scene between Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
Wallace Beery quit the circus after being attacked by a leopard and became an actor. He eventually became an Oscar winning actor who was in over 232 films in the 1910s, 20s & 30s. I’m sure you’ve never seen any of the films he’s been in, unless of course Tyler Perry has remade about 50 of them as I suspect.
