let's not talk about his upcoming movie, but rather the past and more current works of the man, steve martin.

he was on saturday night live's latest episode (christopher walken host) in one of the most random cameos i've ever seen ever.  one of my most favourite works of his is 'dirty rotten scoundrels', which is worth purchasing the number of copies equal to your age just for the physical comedy.

Yes, I've been a huge Steve Martin fan since I was old enough to understand what the dirty parts of his comedy records meant! He's not only underrated as an actor, but as a talent in general.

He's been great in so many things. Novacaine, The Jerk... Of course he's made a few stinkers, too ("Man with Two Brains" or "Pennies from Heaven" anyone?) My personal favorite is L.A. Story.

He's so great. A good thread for a well deserving guy.

I just saw on imdb that he's going to be in a film adaptation of "Cheaper by the Dozen." I remember reading that book in the 5th grade. I was all excited just for the nostalgia of it but then I saw that they list Queen Latifah as being in it and now see that this is probably just a mix up with his new movie. This make BonBon sad.

and also his own adaptation of 'Picasso at the Lapin Agile'....

"This comedy, based on Steve Martin's successful stage play concerns a fictional meeting between a young Pablo Picasso and a young Albert Einstein at a Paris Cafe at the turn of the 20th Century. The colorful cast of characters includes the addlepated cafe owner, Freddy, Picasso's sexy young femme dujour, his pompous art dealer, and a mysterious visitor from the future."

martin plays the visitor from the future

I'm the only person I know who has seen, bought, and loved "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid".

And I liked "Man With Two Brains", dagnabbit.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

OK, as a representing old fart "child of the 80's" I resent that.

Sixteen Candles and Breakfast Club had Molly Ringwald in her HOT AS FIRE days, so they must be good for something. Those movies pretty much defined us. Shame on you, JB.

Although I guess I can't be too harsh since I diss the Beatles every chance I get.
