I read on imdb.com that Sam Rockwell, who is one of my favourite actors, is playing Zaphod Beeblebrox in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie. That, sir or madam, is very exciting. I hope they use the music from the original tv series because…well, I guess because it’s in my head right now.

Who are my favourite actors besides Sam Rockwell? Bill Murray (everything). John Turturro (especially Barton Fink, Box of Moonlight with Sam Rockwell). Ian Holm (Brazil, Joe Gould’s Secret, Madness of King George, Alien). Julianne Moore (especially Magnolia, Boogie Nights, Big Lebowski. She was the only saving grace of Far From Heaven. She was in a Lovecraftian movie called Cast A Deadly Spell). Alfred Molina (The Impostors, Chocolat. He’s playing Dr. Octopus in Spider-Man 2 – also very exciting). Tony Shalhoub (The Big Night, Galaxy Quest, and a tv series called Monk). Sigourney Weaver (everything). I also like Kevin Spacey, Johnny Depp and Stanley Tucci. And Miranda Otto really took me by surprise in The Two Towers. Oh and Bruce Campbell…for obvious reasons.
