  1. Nothing happened to him, he was a bigger fan of the stage (unsurprisingly, he'd later become an artistic director for the Scranton Public Theatre) than appearing in movies. It's not uncommon for a lot of stage-bred actors to do this, Paul Scofield comes to mind with that.

  2. My guy... seasons 21 and 22. I've worked on over 30 TV shows. We don't put in fake contestants, especially when there's a 250k salary on the line.

  3. I see...So I am guessing they are really just that incompetent.

  4. Ha! They must have been. To error is to be human. Also, they don't get a lot of sleep, so that probably contributes to it. They average around 5 to 6 hours a night.

  5. I think he's also underrated for his ability to adapt stage plays. A lot of directors struggle to either let the play breathe and feel more expansive than the source material, or the opposite, they can't quite use the stagey-ness of the material to make us feel in the room with them in that same way. Friedkin is a master of both. The Boys in the Band, Bug, and Killer Joe (all excellent films) are inherently claustrophobic and in your face, when they need to be, but also interestingly staged and shot to disguise the staged roots of the source material.

  6. You Know, you mentioning Stage Plays made me realized that I forgot that Friedkin directed the 1997 Television Movie, 12 Angry Men with Jack Lemmon, George C. Scott and Hume Cronyn.

  7. I couldn't agree more! I'd swap so much of season 3's plotlines and characters for Bernie back.

  8. I think the reason why she wasn't there was the fact he was filming a new exorcist movie

  9. It'll be rubbish. Look at the cast. Now, had he listened to me and gone the dark comedy route with Nic Cage...

  10. D.B Sweeney will be Commissioner Hart and Apparently Giancarlo Esposito will be Mayor Cicero.

  11. Idk how indicative this is of the quality but having almost none of Coppola’s top choices be present in the final cast isn’t a good sign

  12. Hah, Coppola has been trying to make this since the 1980s, he almost did in early 2000s, with Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Newman, Uma Thurman, Robert DeNiro Exc.

  13. Not sure why you're being downvoted. Yes, he did a bunch of crappy Westerns where he always played a villain. In fact, most of his filmography is schlock, forgettable Edgar Wallace films etc. The ones which he is still largely remembered for are the Hertzog ones. Without him, he would be forgotten.

  14. He was also in The Great Silence which is probably one of the greatest spaghetti westerns released at the time. He was the Villain, but it was a very memorable performance.

  15. By that logic, Alfred Hitchcock—one of the most celebrated directors of the original French auteurists—is also not the auteur people think he is, since most of his films were adaptations and he also did not write his films.

  16. It's not so much the remake, it's more of the fact that it is what Tim Burton would least likely to do. Also, The remakes feel very soulless and feel they were only made to make Big Money.

  17. It's a Shame that Florek had to heave Law & Order and also SVU, He was a great character.
