Thief was the one for me, also liked him in For the Boys, and he was hilarious in Elf.

Loved him in Elf. And Mickey Blue Eyes - best part of that film.

And I knew you'd choose Thief - Michael Mann, baby.

I couldn’t look at a sledgehammer without wincing after that movie.

Yep. I also have soft spot from my youth for him in Brian’s Song.

First film that came to me was Bulletproof. Adam Sandler, Damon Wayans, and Kristen Wilson. Kristen has hauntingly beautiful light brown eyes.

I know most everyone's seen The Godfather, but my favorite Caan performance is a toss-up between The Gambler and Thief

Both incredible performances from him. Also underrated in El Dorado , Rain People , Freebie & The Bean, Another Man, Another Chance, and Gardens of Stone.

Caan was a master of vulnerable machismo.

I watched El Dorado a couple of nights ago. LINK

He was great on and off screen, I was a fan.

He had a great confident air about him.

I just loved him in the Godfather, the scene when he beats up Carlo for beating his sister is just brilliant.

Rest in peace James.

Misery was an epitome of that even if an obvious one. Jimmy was the main reason I liked Bottle Rocket (1996) at all as opposed to the more commercial Rushmore (98).

Was a cute Wilson movie. Remember watching that in 96 on cable in the wee hours simply out of boredom and it being on at the beginning. The Wilson cuteness kinda faded. You already saw the entire bag of tricks in those by the time Rushmore came around. I knew Rushmore was done by the same people as Bottle Rocket before I verified it sometime later (I was still comp-less when Rushmore first hit telly, no Dogpile, no AltaVista, no Lycos, no AskJeeves abilities).

Coincidence? I'm making a meatloaf today. I'm mentally tasting spam and ground beef. I'll let you know how it tastes.
