You know, I’ve been trying to think for almost 10 days now about actors I like, and I can’t find reason to fault Ollie’s list. I’ve only actually seen Vincent Cassel in one film (La Haine), so I can’t comment on that one, but the other four actors are all very close to my heart. In fact, me and my flatmate spent one evening debating over who we loved more: Phillip Seymour Hoffman or Steve Buscemi. We came to the conclusion that whilst Buscemi has been in loads more excellent films, he’s also been in loads more shit too – I mean, he once shared screentime with Sandra Bullock. Whereas the only blemish against Mr Hoffman to date would be having anything to do with Scent of a Woman. I don’t care if it was his breakthrough into Hollywood… It’s. The. Worst. Fucking. Film. Ever.*

However, I do have two words that could bring Ollie’s list shaking to its knees: Judge Reinhold.



Man, it’s goddamned cold.

David can always be relied on to end his e-mails with one of those 'np: blah blah' things in order to remind us of how much more music he listens to every day than anybody else. His interests include rockin ' out in a major style as guitarist in Souvaris, throwing frisbees from tall buildings "just to see what happens" and simply kickin' back with his bitches in a gold-plated jacuzzi.
