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.

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

I'm cool with Alan Alda! Every other A-- A-- name makes my brain hurt, though.

confusing chris rock with chris tucker seems slightly less dumb than confusing bills paxton and pullman

i think just the opposite.

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).
