I've been trawling [pun intended] through all my old video tapes deciding if they need to be transferred to DVD, bought on DVD or just dumped.
Found an old movie from 1981 called 'A Whale for the Killing' with Peter Strauss and Dee Wallace.
Bruce McGill plays an arrogant, argumentative - lets face it - total a**hole!
Shows his diversity I guess, but this character had NO redeeming features whatsoever. Surely not one he'd want to be remembered for? :disbelief
My point: He's very versatile. He definitely knows how to play a bastard as well as a kind guy.
Agreed. Part of why he's one of my all-time favorite 'that guy' actors. I've loved him since the first time I saw him in 'Animal House'.
Did you see 'Lincoln'? It's one of those roles where you don't immediately recognize him unless you know he's in it.
