Michael is a Smiths fanboy! [Jun. 25th, 2010|08:01 pm]

We go for so long without any new photos, and suddenly there's tons!

Last Sunday, Michael attended the Smiths/Morrissey fan convention in L.A. Love that he still goes to conventions as a fan! Last year, he attended a similar convention for Depeche Mode.

From an article about the Con: "I would love for them to get back together for one night," says actor Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor on Smallville. "It would be the biggest concert ever."

Michael has said he would love to play Morrissey in a movie. As a huge Smiths fan, I would love that too! All that creative and sexual tension between Morrissay and Johnny Marr: Rrowrrr! Michael's hair might even be a tribute to Morrissey's famous "quiff."


Link

kantayra gave me a prompt for the Actors meme! If you'd like to play, comment and I will give you ten actors and ten actresses. Then post in your Livejournal with your favorite films of theirs.



Actors

1. Sean Connery

Not a huge fan. Dr. No, I guess.

2. Willem DaFoe

As "Max Schreck" in the "Shadow of the Vampire."

3. Hugh Jackman

Hottie! Loved him best as Curly in TV's "Oklahoma."

4. Samuel L. Jackson

This is a hard call because I adore him. "The Red Violin", because he brings intensity and star power to a great little Canadian movie.

5. Val Kilmer

Gay Perry in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"! *loves*

6. Bill Murray

Jeff Slater in "Tootsie". Never better!

7. Jack Nicholson

Bill Rorich (the arrogant anchorman) in Broadcast News.

8. Bill Pullman

The none too bright Earl Mott in "Ruthless People."

9. Kevin Spacey

Verbal Kint, Usual Suspects. Knockout performance.

10. Denzel Washington

Alonzo Harris, in "Training Day". He had such a great time playing a baddie for once. I remember the theatre going "whoa!" upon realizing Alonzo wasn't a bad-ass, he was BAD.

Actresses:

1. Embeth Davidtz

This is TV but love her as the "desperate to leave NYC" Rebecca on "Mad Men."

2. Ruby Dee

Mother Abigail Freemantle, in "The Stand"!

3. Jodie Foster

Clarice!

4. Katherine Hepburn

As madcap Susan in "Bringing up Baby!"

5. Helen Hunt

Heh, NOT a fan. I guess "Girls just wanna have fun" for nostalgia reasons!

6. Virginia Madsen

As Katherine in "the Prophecy"!

7. Elisabeth Shue

Has to be "Adventures in Babysitting", again for nostalgia reasons.

8. Alfre Woodard

As the tough but awesome Mom in "Crooklyn."

9. Catherine Zeta-Jones

Minxing it up in Chicago!

10. Zhang Ziyi

I've only seen her in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and she was great!

As if I need any more reason to love him. I love The Smiths/Morrissey.

Meanwhile, FML, he tweeted that he was at the Psychedelic Furs/She Wants Revenge concert last night and I was thisclose to going but was I was too cheap.

8. Alfre Woodard

She is my favorite female actor.

My love for him grew even HUGER when I read about him standing on his seat to sing along with "Please let me get what I want" at a Morrissey concert a few years ago. I can just imagine him holed up in his room with Strangeways in high school!

Meanwhile, FML, he tweeted that he was at the Psychedelic Furs/She Wants Revenge concert last night and I was thisclose to going but was I was too cheap.
Aw :( Well, if they come round again, he'll go see them again and maybe you can too. He's very faithful to his bands.

What's your favourite performance of Alfre's?

What's your favourite performance of Alfre's?

I would have to list the first thing I saw her in: an episode of "L.A Law" as a woman in jail with leukemia who killed her rapist and it was the first time I recognized good acting. Like I wasn't just watching TV, I could get a sense of her bringing this character to life. But I really loved her in "Miss Firecracker".

That episode sounds brutal, in a good way.

Never seen Miss Firecracker but must seek it out - you're the second person to rec it this month!

Michael's ability to fanboy while being a celeb himself is what makes him so awesome. :D

I'll give the actors/actresses a shot. lol Hopefully, I'll be able to post in a timely manner too... and not procrastinate like I usually do. :P

It's why he's so great at Cons as a guest, I think. He totally gets the fan perspective. *squishes him*

Some great picks here! Though I might quibble about one.

7. Jack Nicholson

Bill Rorich (the arrogant anchorman) in Broadcast News.


I adored him in "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" as Barbra Streisand's ex-step-brother.

You should see it! Aside from Nicholson's character being awesome, Streisand is purely amazing (and so, of course, is the music). In one scene, her character seduces a man across a crowded dinner table without a word being exchanged. Talk about sexy...!
