    “Now no one gives 2 fucks for Bela.”

    So happy he won the Oscar for Ed Wood.

    Good actor who had a long run and man was he creepy, reptilian in North by Northwest!

    He covered the waterfront, from Hitchcock to Entourage. And look at the other credits: Tucker: The Man and His Dream (Oscar nomination), Crimes and Misdemeanors (another Oscar nomination), and on and on. Hell, he was a terrific Geppetto in The Adventures of Pinocchio. And damned if he didn’t keep on working right up to the end.

    I was watching The X-Files first movie last night and he was in it. He was effortlessly intense and a pleasure to watch. Space 1999 was a fave of mine as a kid. Crimes and Misdemeanours and Ed Wood are masterpieces…IMDB lists 173 credits but I still wish he had been in more big movies. He did a lot of television early in his career. Never did catch the Mission Impossible television series, but I wish I did.

    He was the last guy you would think of when you say MOVIE STAR. Normal looking, would hardly stand out in a crowd yet in the right hands (the aforementioned Tucker, Crimes and Wood) he performed frickin’ arias.

.“People that are liars — lying to his wife, to his children, to everyone — well, they have to turn around and say, ‘Who stabbed me?’ It’s unbelievable that even to this moment he is more concerned with who sold him out. I don’t hear concern or contrition for the victims. And I want them to hear that.”
~ Bob Weinstein

“I really hated the experience. My first American experience was almost my last because it was with the Weinsteins and Miramax. I have got to tell you, two horrible things happened in the late nineties, my father was kidnapped and I worked with the Weinsteins. I know which one was worse—the kidnappers made more sense, I knew what they wanted.”
~ Guillermo del Toro
