My Newest Goal
Well, I think that's my new goal. To name a week, every week. Plus, I have to teach in about 3 hours and I can't think of anything else I should be doing right now.
Next week will be . . . National Blog About Your Favorite Under-rated or Low Profile Actor Week.
Here are some guidelines:
This actor should not be featured in People Magazine on a regular basis. And NOT on the cover; NEVER on the cover.
There probably has not been an E! True Hollywood Story about this person.
This person probably does not have a "combo" name like Brangelina or Bennifer II or Vaughniston or . . . you get the picture.
A regular presence on the Red Carpet? Not your favorite under-rated actor. (Is underrated hyphenated? I don't know. I don't think so now, but it looks weird all together like that.)
This person should also not be so obscure that only the brightest art film snobs will know of whom you blog.
For now, let us stick to both big and small screen actors. Perhaps we will do another week where we discuss that Great White Way.
For my entry (I'm getting a head start on next week, see), I give you:
I love him. I love him as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter Series. I love him as Harry in Love Actually. I love him as Metatron in Dogma. And I love, love, LOVE him in the HBO movie Something The Lord Made. (Add to your Net Flix Queue - you won't be sorry!)
That's all. See how easy it was? Let me know when you blog about your favorite under-rated actor. You know, in honor of the National Week and all.
