i think the article said that tilda swinton would be the keener character's best friend, not PSH's lover... but really, how could anyone resist PSH?

Are you kidding Nat??? Tilda Swinton is so in PSH's league. GROSS.

Philip Seymour Hoffman is a great character actor, but it seems he wants to be a leading man in spite of his character looks. I love Tilda Swinson, but not in love scenes (About Adam). But you said it better. Always excited about the new Kaufman project.
Thanks for the link.

I love Charlie Kaufman! Tilda Swinton rocks. I love that moment between Pedro and Clint. ScarJo is so damn sexy it's stupid!

I'm sure you've seen this, but: La Pfeiffer.

html, obviously, is how that ends.

When will the Phillip Seymour Hoffman's of the world realise we don't wanna see their ugly mugs in lead roles?

:P of course.

Anne Heche 4evah is right! Why does she not get more work? Girlfriend is a warm and wonderful screen presence.

Speaking of her and the La Pfeiffer mention above, just watched the newest episode of 'Men in Trees' -- cute show, by the way -- and was tickled to see a poster of her Catwoman hanging on one character's bedroom walls. Just a short little close-up, but a nice homage of sorts to a legendary performance by a terrific actress.

Long live La Pfeiffer!
