adrien brody (I've oly seen him in the pianist and summer of sam, but that is a big enough transformation for me)


You weren't lucky enough to see him whimper for the camera once or twice for about twenty seconds in Mallick's three hour "Thin Red Line"?

aw

Oh yeah, I forgot that one, that's a very cool film.
Does he have a line in that, I can't remember...


Off hand I cannot remember (though I'm sure someone will be nice enough to fill us in).  I do know that he had a handful more before Mallick's six hour cut became three hours (I'd kill someone to get a copy of that work print).  I remember reading something (that was probably exagerrating a bit) that related that before the big cuts Brody was convinced he had one of the lead parts in the film.  

I read the book and his was a really neat character (w/ shades of homosexuality, infurtiating cowardice and, soon after, what some refer to as "the little man complex").  

Good actor, great film...

aw

That's amazing!
Richie the weirdo, a gay soldier and Wladislav Szpílman. Now that's reinvention.

Email or pm me if you ever get a copy of that, jokerspath.
