    He is such an amazing actor, one of my favorites, too. I loved him in “In the Name of the Father”, such a powerful and heartrending movie.

    Great, great, GREAT actor! I’m w/ you Jacob – I hate that he’s hanging up his acting cleats, as well. This is interesting… As I’ve mentioned before, I host a weekly team trivia contest and I actually asked this very question in the final round (without the hint about his last win coming from portraying a President). I have a lot of VERY smart participants that show up weekly and only one team answered this right! Since they tape these shows so far in advance, the news of his retirement would have been fresher on the minds on these players, so I’m going to guess 2 out 3 get it, with the possible wrong answer being Anthony Hopkins (who played Nixon in “Nixon”). And if I’m wrong, heed my warning… “There Will Be Blood”! ;-)

    Again we have a great quote of the day and very true. Why we complicate life I’ve never figured out. As for the CotD getting on the good foot will help especially if it’s the left one to come up with this British actor’s name. DDL is one of my favorite actors. Hate to hear he’s retiring & hope it’s just a rumor.
