Blanchett spells her name wrong, setting herself apart from all the other British Kates.

What about Reynolds's much-heralded "comeback" circa Boogie Nights?

That was just the one film, and it wasn't even something I paid much attention to. I still haven't gotten around to seeing that movie. This may sound dysfunctional but I'm not really interested in anything porn-related, because the thought of it bores me. Anyway.

Dan, I confuse Chris Rock and Chris Tucker because they're both called Chris, they're both comedians, they both broke through in the movies around the same, and I'm not too familiar with their acts to know what differentiates them. There's no hidden racism there, I confuse white people with similar names and backgrounds too, like the aforementioned Bills Pullman and Paxton.

Admittedly, I wouldn't confuse Chris Rock or Chris Tucker with a white comedian, but unfortunately skin colour is one of those traits we tend to notice about people.

While watching Little Miss Sunshine last night, I realized:

Alan Arkin / Adam Arkin. I can never remember which is which. The father/son combo is just a cruel joke.

Because they're both WHITE GUYS NAMED MATT! IT CONFUSES ME!

I once dated two white guys named Matt, at the same time. total confusion hilarity.

I dated two blond Polish girls called Anna who were in the same class at school one after the other.

because Paxton and Pullman are both kinda 'forgettable' as actors?

vita susicivus (blueski), Thursday, 25 January 2007 14:55 (7 years ago) Permalink

i guess, i only vaguely recall either and i wouldn't know either if they standing next to me. i think i know which one paxton is but i may be mistaking him for pullman. was one of them the president in men in black?

It's hard for me to confuse Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman because I keep forgetting Bill Paxton exists.

I basically think of Bill Paxton as Coconut Pete in everything he's in now, whereas I think of Bill Pullman as Lone Star (which made Lost Highway freaking AWESOME).
