i hope you weren't leaving "Rescue Dawn" off
the filmography as a conceptual choice because
you hate it? i personally love it and think it was
the birth of Christian Bale. i believe it was during that movie he said those words "i want to be an actor"

cool post.
i love jereme dean, by the way.
(oh, but not like THAT, if you know what i mean,
but his blog is how i found yours)

Christian Bale based the voice of his 'Batman' on the sound of his cat 'Myrtle' bringing up a hairball. He achieved the voice by spending three months eating nothing but sandpaper and sawdust. The resulting growl has been hailed by some critics as 'ridiculous' and 'highly comical'.

sky_wing, i didn't know that.

brian, you should write an entry about yourself and i'll post it on here.

frosting and fire, no, i just didn't know about that one.

Gay...Nah...he's just skinny.
His voice is pushed and it if we notice the voice, we are taken out of the story and think about how odd the voice is. The filmaker should not that as it costs them in the long run. I liked the last film, but something was off in the pacing. Heath stole the show as they say.

Actually, he is gay. Why he was even hired for this role is a mystery to Batman fans, in the least, never mind whatever The Americans think.

Isn't Kate Hudson the asian Kate Hudson? Probably why The Americans don't invest in the stupid entertainment industry over their own real culture. Makes sense.
