[from a letter delivered to President Nixon’s office on December 21, 1970] Sir, I can and will be of any I service that I can to help the country out. I have no concern or motive other than helping the country out, so I wish not to be given a title or an appointed position. I can and will do more good if I were made a Federal Agent at Large, and I will help best by doing it my way through my communications with people of all ages. First and foremost I am an entertainer, but all I need is the Federal Credentials..I have done an in depth study of Drug Abuse and Brainwashing…

[9/1/98, in interview in “Daily News”, about following his own gut in career choices] I was 18, did a couple of things on TV, then I did Ordinary People (1980) and when you are fortunate enough to be in a movie like that, working with Robert Redford as the director and the movie is as well received as it was, it would be ludicrous to have a master plan for a career. So next, I was in Wayne, PA, doing Taps (1981) and then I was back in New York working with Sidney Lumet doing an ensemble movie called Daniel (1983). And I turned down a starring role in Risky Business (1983), even though all…

[May 1984] When I first came to New York I was a dancer, and a French record label offered me a recording contract and I had to go to Paris to do it. So I went there and that’s how I really got into the music business. But I didn’t like what I was doing when I got there, so I left, and I never did a record there.

Courtney B. Vance (12 October 1997 – present) (2 children)

I would have to say honestly I was very pleased to be in a film whether it was good or bad with De Niro, Norton and Brando even if I don’t have any scenes with them, I thought it was pretty good company to keep.

Happy Birthday: Cam Gigandet

Festival Reviews

camgigandet.jpgCam Gigandet

Born: August 16, 1982 in Tacoma, Washington, USA

(On being frequently cast as a villain) It’s probably, I’m not going to say the easiest thing for me, I don’t know, I enjoy it the most. I don’t know why, I think it’s that there’s more to grab onto, I guess. You can use your imagination a little bit more, where as if they’re good guys or heroes, they always have to abide by a strict set of rules. To this day, I still haven’t been able to figure out how to work around those. It hasn’t gotten fun for me, the good guy. Maybe because I don’t know how to do it, I don’t know. With the bad guys, there seems to be more creativity and imagination involved in justifying what they do. That’s what people hire me for, I’ll take it.

THE ROOMMATE
