Is it Letterman, doing a favor for his guy under the stairs?

That would be in response to
Quote
Earl Hofert appears in the credits of "Cabin Boy."  What is his real name?

It might also be the answer to oilcan's question; but if so, it's entirely by accident, I don't know.

I know it's May and half the population of anywhere is somewhere else, but in case anyone is around....

In what film does Harvey Keitel appear for about five seconds?


Bonus question:  which is better at playing drums  -- stoat, ferret, or weasel?

I haven't a clue on the Harvey Keitel question.  Are there any hints? (hint, hint)

As for rodent drummers, I go with the British legacy of great drummers (Moon, Starr, Bonham, etc.) and say stoat.

hint:  it's a film in which a film is going to be made.

Stoat is probably correct, for the bonus question.  Some have stayed at the Chateau Marmot, as you know.

Well, I looked at Keitel's considerable oeuvre listed on imdb.com and have no clue.  Hope somebody comes up with the answer soon or barton relents.  (BTW, I got all but one of your "greatest spoilers" list (giving self a pass because I hadn't seen the last movie) and thanks for that mini-puzzler.

Well, I'm glad we at least made you wait a couple days to make the Chateau Marmot joke. 

(Is this a bogus question, barton?)

(what could possibly be bogus about the marmot percussionist question?)

ANSWER:












Keitel appears for a few seconds at the conclusion of "Get Shorty," playing in the film-within-the-film that Chili Palmer wanted to make -- he plays the role that is based on the gangster played by Dennis Farina in the film proper.  The final scene cuts from Farina about to open the airport locker, to Keitel doing the same thing.

Whew, thanks for setting mind at rest...or part of it, anyway.

Here's an OTW one: What profession was played by Gary Cooper and Matt Dillon in which each "struggles to maintain his integrity and individualism despite personal, professional and economic pressures to conform?"  (No other similarities whatsoever).

I'm guessing an officer of the law....Dillon in "Crash" and Cooper in "High Noon" ?

Dillon was one of the best things about "Crash" IMO.  Still haven't seen his Chas Bukowski impression ("Factotum"), but it's on my list -- he's a fine actor.

If that's right, the floor is open; if that's wrong, then let me know and I'll resume the headscratching.

Aha!  That's much better than what I was thinking -- Matt Dillon pretending to be an architect in There's Something About Mary and Gary Cooper in Atlas Shrugged.

Yours may be correct barton, I still haven't seen Crash so can't say, but will say thanks for reminder to do so.

Semi-Bingo, harrie: architect it was, but for Cooper it was The Fountainhead and for Dillon I was referring to You, Me and Dupree (dunno about Mary--that may be right too) in which he rebels against the bastardization of his project by his father-in-law. 

Well, I said "no other similarities!"

Now who's got one for us?
