yeah, he's generally a pretty strong actor.


definate appreciation from me. Smile




he's taken on a number of questionable roles/projects, but everyone needs to work, so i don't really hold it against him.

Mrs Tanaka...

Always made me laugh in Blood Sport Smile

And yes, he is excellent in The Shield. How far into Series 5 are you guys in the UK? It's finished until January 07 over here, but I heard they split Series 5 up into two extended parts intentionally. There's at least one more series after 5 concludes aswell.

I saw about ten minutes of Bird - seemed ok, but is it worth going out of my way to watch?

it's ok.....i'd watch it again if it was a totally convenient moment to watch it.


every jazz musician i've ever heard of that knew him, and saw that movie, seemed to think the repesentation was way too dark and brooding compared to what he was actually like as a person. (Even at the end of his life)

however, they didn't attribute it to forest's performance.....

I'll bear that in mind Smile

He did sound like a bit of a joker (if a cunt with it Grin )...

Grrrrrrrrrr.

I've been without the shield for Six months now, and it's another Five months till season Six starts. Mad

They're stoping after season Seven. No more the Shield.

Still, I have a new Prison Break season to tie me over. Grin
