Some of my older readers may remember my stint as a comics reviewer a few years back. In the comments field for this review, a discussion began on what actors were the "definitive" versions of the characters they played on screen. The commentators, including several friendly blog authors, bandied about several names, including Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, George Reeves as Superman and Patrick Warburton as the Tick. Then came the comment of The Opinioness (who went by a different moniker back then), recommending the legendary cowboy actor John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn. My first reaction was obvious: "Who the bleep's Rooster Cogburn?"
|Marshall, the best picture award got away!|
|I'm %#@&ing Matt Damon!|
|If the hat doesn't fit, you must acquit!|
|Rooster needs a smoky smoke to make Mattie more bearable|
|Someone's True Grit is spilling out on the ground as we speak...|
|Like La Beuf with his poor aim, Damon has no shot at an acting award this year|
|"I'm just going to close my eyes now. You just keep on talking"|
