It's true; This mayoral candidate has no dick.|
hit_the_leland and I were talking just yesterday about how Peck is in our top ten most hateable villians list. Also? Totally a douchebag in Die Hard one and two.
Speaking of playing the same character in multiple things, Carl Winslow from Family Matters plays a cop in Ghostbusters and the first two Die Hard movies. And on Family Matters, of course. That guy is a cop forever. Just like William Atherton is forever dickless. The end. <3
Just like how James Tolkan
is always that hard-ass bald military dude, whether he's a cop, FBI agent or the principal.
No shittin', he's going against Lewis Armstrong and Louis
Armstrong separately. ::throws up hands::

"May I *please* see the storage facility, Dr. Venkman?"
I love to hate that man.
He also played a cop in Turner & Hooch.
Had I not been there for those conversations I would agree whole-heartedly with you on those points. But seeing as I was left out of the description I will only contradict what you're saying (un-abashedly, and completely unfounded)
That conversation was actually a repeat. Leland's been trying to get me to work on my hated villian list for ages. I'm eating cheesecake!
I recall, ages ago when they aired, being amused that one of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon episodes had one of them mention Peck, saying "We don't want Mr. Peck to come and shut down power to the containment unit again." Considering that his entire role in the film was wrapped in not-kid-friendly dialogue, it struck me as an interesting inclusion.
you haven't posted in, like, six months.
the dude who played carl winslow was a limo driver in crocodile dundee.
Talk about breaking out of your role!
You and I are the only ones on LiveJournal with "chip butty" as a interest. I felt it was worth mentioning. :)
