    “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.

“Dude, I don’t like the way you talk, bro. How can you tell me that it’s going to be hard? Do you see a lot of people like you writing stories? Give me a break, bro. That’s your strength, that you’re not like us. Go out there and tell your stories. Don’t go out there and try to be like Quentin or me or anybody else. We need you. Tell me what makes you angry, why you’re arrogant, or fearful, whatever it is. Don’t hide anything. Be honest. What is that thing that bothers you and makes you distinct? Everyone’s looking for you. A Mexican point-of-view to tell a story right now? I’m telling you, everybody wants that right now. I desperately need you to tell your story in your way. You are essential.”
