I call on the bloggers of the world to adopt an actor.
I would recommend you pick a character actor, as they are the unsung heroes of the entertainment world.
By adopting Character Actor X you are not expected to be an exhaustive resource on X, nor are you expected to have seen all movies in which X acted. No, none of that crap.
I would only ask that you promote the actor from time to time, and occasionally keep tabs on their progress (assuming he or she isn't dead). If you want to do it up nice, make a l'il space on your blog where you can have a picture of them.
Now that we have that out of the way, if you're thinking about adopting David Patrick Kelly, FORGET IT. I have adopted him.
David Patrick Kelly is the best part of a lot of movies that he has acted in. His first movie role was in The Warriors where he delivered the immortal line "Warriors, come out to play-ee-ay!"
Directors Walter Hill and Spike Lee cast Mr. Kelly on a regular basis.
He's got this knack for being very natural, no matter how cheesy the lines he's given, whether it's in sorta silly sci-fi movie Dreamscape or the wonderful Ahnold movie Commando.
I had thought up until today that Mr. Kelly was the person who fired the gun that killed Brandon Lee during the filming of The Crow, but after doing a little bit of research it appears that it was another actor that pulled the trigger.
This makes me feel better.
This is the first post devoted to my adoptee, but not the last.
Go, David, Go!
