Ah, El Rombo!
Danny Dyer's ''Worlds Most Dangerous Men'' is sterling.
Best thing about Human Traffic. Brilliant in Severance, and Tapeheads. Genuinely can't wait to see Doghouse.
I have three of these items in my house: http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2009/may/02/danny-dyer-guidelines
Seeing that website for the first time marked the exact moment when Dyer came out the other side into "Awesome".
So the expendables then, i canny wait :)
Funnily enough, a friend of mine just invited me to the premier screening of The Firm re-make in a couple of weeks. I replied positively and said: "First one to get a picture with Danny Dyer gets bonus points."
Then this thread appeared...timing is everything...
As for Dyer, he knows he's a bit of a prick and life is slightly richer for him being around.
I don't have great expectations, but I'm sure it'll be fairly enjoyable!
I love the bit in the original when 'Jim McDonald' punches the ceiling out of the building where they have the 'big meet' lol.
I'm going to have to go and see that... convincing the girlfriend could prove to be pretty tricky.
Rent her 'Sleepless in Seattle' as deflection.
Also, the bit when Yeti drives his car onto the football pitch - you don't get brazen attempts to kill people like that anymore...
apparently he's appearing a play:
Kurt and Sid
** Did Sid Vicious & Kurt Cobain ever meet**
By Roy Smiles
Directed by Tim Stark
April 1994. A man sits alone in an attic extension on the cusp of becoming a Seattle suicide statistic. This man is no ‘number and name’ to be reported in a local newspaper. He is an icon, albeit a reluctant one. The frontman of Nirvana. is about to pull the trigger of the gun in his hand and join the leagues of rock star deaths down the ages. Without invitation, Kurt has the curious company of a man purporting to be the Sex Pistol’s Sid Vicious, Kurt’s hero.
Whether he is a ghost, a figment of Kurt’s imagination, an hallucination, a dream, or a Punk impersonator remains to be seen as the two musicians, trade quips and quotes about the emptiness of fame, a mutual understanding of drug addiction and self-destruction.
Roy Smiles witty and beautifully poignant new play explores exactly what it means to dice with death when being alive proves to be all too painful and peace seems elusive…
Some selected favourite moments of episodes I've seen:
-Danny shouting 'MUG!' at someone who shouts his name out of a car window.
-Picking up a pool queue saying he's ready for when 'it all comes on top' and then admitting that 'if it alls come on top I'm out the fucking door'.
He's a self-deprecating genius.
The production team hussle Danny into the back of a car...and Danny, with genuine concern plastered all over his face, keeps saying ''let's all calm down...let's be cool''
that he wrote.
Was he offering them some merch? http://www.guardian.co.uk/culture/2009/may/02/danny-dyer-guidelines
i'm in. danny dyer's like a man in his thirties who still talks about that time he was second hardest kid in his secondary school (who was under 5 foot 11 and younger than 14). the idea of an actor being a hardman is something i can't help but be amused by. i don't think being the toughest kid in a performing arts college says much about your ability to mix it up.
Eat my shorts.
Basil Rathbone was an expert fencer!
Eat MY shorts.
are you saying you couldn't take winstone?
i'd be more afraid of ben kingsley, it's the little ones you have to watch.
