Like I said a couple of weeks ago, Thursday 13 was to much to keep up with, so I'm going to try Thursday 3. :D I have a limited amount of time and if I eliminate 10 things from the list every week, that's a good thing.
So, this week I'm listing three "experienced" actors that I love.
1. Peter O'Toole
- I love this man's voice. He used it so wonderfully in Ratatouille
as the character Anton Ego. I also remember him vividly in the 80's miniseries Masada
in which he played a Roman general.
2. Kirk Douglas
- Of course, he played the title role in Spartacus
. I needn't say more, but I loved him in The Man from Snowy River
, where he played two roles (twin brothers.) I don't remember what he said during an awards acceptance speech, but I do remember he made an impression on me as a man who has loved his life and despite his stroke (?) is determined to enjoy what is left.
3. Mickey Rooney
- He's a teddy bear. I wanna hug him. Did you know he was the voice of Kris Kringle in the Christmas special, Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town
? Most recently he was in Night in the Museum
, that flick with Ben Stiller, which I enjoyed.
