That's Donald. Charlie's too shy to have his picture taken.

I think he's reminiscent of Lou Reed...

Heihachi Hayashida: Yeah, yeah. But I'm better at killing enemies.
Gorobei Katayama: Killed many?
Heihachi Hayashida: Well - It's impossible to kill 'em all, so I ususally run away.
Gorobei Katayama: A splendid principle!
Heihachi Hayashida: Thank you.

Wow, he looks nothing like he was depicted in the movie, lol. That makes it even more innovative...he created a completely different version of himself.

The only award besides best pic and best supporting actor that I fully agree with.

Paul Thomas Anderson deserved this one. The Kaufman's had no reason even being nominated. Contrivance is star studded these days.
