Sorry for lack of postings....damn FaceBook is so addictive!! (should you want to add me I would not complain..HINT HINT!!).
This is a really addictive little network thingy. I resisted MySpace, but could not with FaceBook.
I have even let My Stuff and Crap slip away slightly because I have been too busy poking people and throwing sheep.
Posting will begin again with regularity I promise!
So here is my latest movie news find...now bear with me...
Patrick Swayze, Kris Kristofferson and Eddie Redmayne (yum!) have joined Forest Whitaker, Jessica Biel and Ray Liotta in the ensemble drama "Powder Blue” which is writer-director Timothy Linh Bui's film. It is about several Angelenos meet on Christmas Eve through chance, tragedy and divine intervention.
Kristofferson will play the head of a corporate crime organization who tries to convince his former employee (Liotta) not to seek vengeance on his former co-workers. Whitaker, who also serves as a producer on the film, will play a suicidal ex-priest. Newcomer Alejandro Romero will play a transsexual prostitute who shares an unexpected bond with the priest.
And finally Swayze will play the sleazy owner of the strip club where Biel's character performs. Redmayne will portray a mortician who falls in love with her.
Why does the news that Patrick Swayze is playing a sleazy strip club owner fill me with excitement. The mans career has not really followed the promise that seemed to peak with “Ghost” yet I have always found the actor to be charismatic and quite sexy.
He last impressed me in “Donnie Darko” as a motivational speaker who has a kiddie porn dungeon in his house.
The man can play creepy effectively. Who knows, this could be the role that gives his career a resurgence!
I do realize this is not really news that is going to excite a lot of people, just allow me to bask in the memory of wishing I were Jennifer Grey being lifted out of that pond in “Dirty Dancing” by a muscled and wet Swayze. ( I do try to erase all memories of him in “To Wong Fu” His Vida Bohemme is not so sexy.
Plus he does have a cool name. Swaaaaay Zeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
