    Yeah, Banderas in Desperado WAS cool, good one.

    Speaking of Ocean's Eleven....

    George Clooney exuded some damned good cool in the remake of Ocean's Eleven, as well as Seth in From Dusk 'til Dawn.

    Also worthy of note are some perennial character actors (many of whom are leads as well), including Ed Norton, Michael Madsen, Sam Jackson, Don Cheadle, Lucy Liu, and Famke Janssen.

    Damn, can't believe I forgot The Duke either. True friggin' Grit.

    Let's not forget about ARNOLD in almost everything he's done!
    "Suck a fat one, faggot."
    -MikeL, showing off that sharp wit of his.

    "You may recognize some of these chemicals. Let's start with cyanide...The one the Aum Shinrikyo cult attempted to use to commit mass murder in a Tokyo subway in May 1995...The same cyanide produced routinely--1.4 million tons per year--for use in the production of plastics, adhesives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and so on. It seems that those who put small amounts of cyanide in subways are terrorists. But those who produce it in mass quantities and contaminate broad reaches of soil, water, and air, killing countless living beings, are not terrorists, but rather capitalists, and are counted among the finest and most powerful people on the planet."

    -Derrick Jensen, "What We Leave Behind"

    "You know what's weird to me is Christians who are against the death penalty. After all, if it weren't for the death penalty, we wouldn't celebrate Easter!"
