  1. At 1:09 – He mentions this was the birthplace of stars like Sean Penn, Nic Cage and Ally Sheedy? Did not remember Ally Sheedy in that movie and did not see in the IMDB cast line. He must be confused with Breakfast Club.

  2. The Last King of Scotland was simply marvelous. He was deeply enriched and immersed in that pivotal role. I’m a fan of the other roles that he has done over the years, however that role is special.

  3. Arrival…great movie. Very different take a on alien contact. Strong performances by the leading roles actors. IMO, what stood out almost immediately, was the the performance of Forest Whitaker. Just a great job of acting.

  4. I didn't think Ally Sheedy was in Fast Times…and IMDB confirms she wasn't…I found she was considered for "a role"…but wasn't in it.

    Maybe he auditioned with her?

  5. So many of his performances have been so good and so intense, I’m honestly amazed he’s such a chill, zen-like dude. Just further shows how talented the guy is at completely transforming in his rolls.

  6. His ptosis (drooping) in his left eye looks a lot less here. I know it's inherited, but maybe it gets less as the years go on? Or maybe he's had it adjusted, or the camera angle just reduces the appearance of it.
