This Must be the Place (Naive Melody)

I was watching Wonder Boys yesterday and as the opening credits rolled I saw that Rip Torn was in it. As always, I thought to myself, "I hope they work in the gag with the bucket of confetti."

I think that everywhere he goes, a cloud of confetti follows. He's like Pigpen of "Peanuts" that way, just with confetti instead of dirt. Stagehands must hate to see him coming.

I clicked on the link to find out his real name is: Elmore Rual Torn, Jr. Keep that in your brain for the random trivia call at 2am.

SPOILER ALERT:

The picture is Rip Taylor, the link is Rip Torn. This is the Bill Pullman/Bill Paxton of my world.

Good flick... shot in Pittsburgh, I think.

BTW, I have the same actor-confusion problem with Michael Caine and Bryan Brown.

I feel the same way, GKL. Sadly it never happens.

Rip Torn throws dodgeballs and Rip Taylor throws confetti.

Odd how the less bizarre guy of the two has the more bizarre name.
