Cool Actor Bits

Was watching "The Undeclared"which didn't star Charlie Hunnam but should have. When there is somebody really talented on a series and instead of giving him the lead instead they feature way too much of a charmless untalented guy with the belief that everyman will identify with him, they shouldn't wonder why they get cancelled.

Cow thinks it's a shame that just cause a guy is good-looking his talent is ignored.

The DVD includes an interview where Charlie Hunnam and another actor briefly exit the stage and return having swapped jackets. And nobody noticed!

An episode in college where the professor lectures about Existentialism, causing the actor to question his existence, break down into tears, give up wearing clothes and instead wrap himself in a blanket and slug people for no reason while carrying his copy of "Being and Nothingness." It was hilarious. But is there one comment about this great performance on the audio commentary? No.

This leads to Cow's Theme Of The Day. Audio commentaries should include a fan who is really into the show, who will say "wow-this part is great, why did you do that?" instead of some director who drones on about the panaflex.

Cow, of course, volunteers to be the rabid fan on an audio commentary.

I like fillum festivals because that's the only time you get that experience. Especially if it's a cheap 'n' cheerful one with enthusiastic amateurs chairing the sessions.
