:bounce: This is the kind of homework I can get behind!
Though it may take more than one posting....here's the start:
Favorite roles:
Don Juan de Marco
Roux
CJS (of course)
William Blake
Gilbert Grape

Favorite look:
Don Juan de Marco
Roux
CJS (again)
Jung
Wilmot

Favorite line:
Just about everything Don Juan de Marco says
From POTC I: "You threatened Miss Swann." "Only a little."
From POTC II: "There'll be no knowing here."
From Dead Man: "Are you William Blake?" "Yes. Have you read my poetry?" (BLAM!)
From FALILV: "A drug person can learn to cope with things like seeing their dead grandmother crawling up their leg with a knife in her teeth, but nobody should be asked to handle this trip."

Favorite accessories:
Ganesh

Favorite books:
Happy Days (I wish I could personally thank Johnny for leading me to this gem; I work with elders who live in places just like Happy Days and this story is as accurate as it is touching.)

That's it for now...I'm sure more will occur to me as this wonderful thread continues. What a great idea!

Parlez, welcome to the partay. Oooh, that rhymes. I would say this is quite a recommendation. I look forward to reading it.

To answer your question about the look (I'll make up for my bad behavior here by only posting one answer which makes me even I believe :angel: ) For me it is the Inside the Actors Studio look. Hands down. Also the interview from the Bahamas....and the Leno interview....and the Letterman interview...and the recent shots from the POTC3 filming...and the collar length hair, no glasses, no facial hair...and oh dang...I've done it again. Fine off to the corner again...
:blush:


Hey DITHOT.... does "gibbet" mean anything to you? :lol: Just kidding.


:fear: NOOOOOO! I'll be good...really I will! :please:

Except I forgot something... (I really, really liked Good Omens... :shhh:) you didn't see me...I wasn't really here...

Parlez, welcome to ONBC! :wave: This is definitely the kind of thread that requires more than one posting...not that I would know anything about that... :shhh:

I was going to follow the rules and post my five favorite lines first... but you all are such philistines......or pirates......or maybe the rules are more like guidelines.......

Favorite roles are EASY:
George Jung. He made grown men not afflicted with JDOCD cry over his loss of innocence and joie de vrie.(sorry, can't spell it--it means the joy of life, the feeling of endless possibility)

Bon-Bon/Lieutenant Victor Beautiful, sexy, daring; almost shocking in the perversity of choice, in a GREAT movie.


Gilbert so sensitive and loving; such good hair, such a good kisser, such a good brother, such seething discontent below the surface.

William Blake Says more with the twitch of an eyebrow than most actors do in an entire movie. A transformation from innocence to fatalism accomplished by body language alone. Astonishing performance.

And, finally, since Captain Jack Sparrow is without argument the best character ever created in a motion picture; the most original, engaging, amusing, charming, interesting, etc., in a class of his own, he has to be disqualified for overwhelming the comperition. That leaves



Donnie Brasco Can't get past the staircase scene.
I'll buy you the hat....a really big one.

Ohhhh. I have to go to bed, and my mind is blank. I would like to second Shadows choice of accessories. I feel exactly the same way.

Roles: (can this be subject to change :-? )

CJS
Ichabod
Fred Abberline
Wilmot
Gilbert in a close tie with Edward Scissorhands.

I think.....or maybe Ed Wood.....I think...No No... Corso..Corso...Oh I guess I have to think about this more... :bawl:

Shadow....great idea--showing the looks. I will need to work on that one. And you are our first, I believe, to post your favorite lines. Boy was that ever a toughie--mostly because I can't narrow it down to 5. But I did and here are mine:

I think we've all arrived at a very special place. Spiritually, ecumenically, grammatically.

Buy the ticket, uh, take the ride.

No. I'll shoot the cook. My car's parked out back, anyway.

In my experience, those who do not like you fall into two categories: The stupid and the envious. The stupid will like you in five years time. The envious, never.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Dang it! I forgot about William Blake. Too many roles. And it is hard to get past those stairs, Stroch.

It was good to see everyone tonight :bounce: and I hope everyone that has posted and wants to add a little something to their lists or another list will return and do that. :cool: I also hope those of you that read the question and are hard at work on your lists will return and share them. :writer:

I'm off to my corner for the evening to prepare the lists I have not yet had time to write...

I can only list 5.

Hi Joni. :wave: I thought it very interesting when that book came up on my son's list of books to study this year in the 11th grade. Can't wait to discuss that with him, even though I have yet to read it. :blush:
