Clint & Mark Twain

Nov. 3, 2008by: Omar Aviles

Clint Eastwood Clint Eastwood has mentioned several times that the upcoming GRAN TORINO, in which he directs himself as a cantankerous, racist war vet, would be his last on screen performance, saying he preferred to stay behind the camera these days. That is, of course, if he found material compelling enough to put him in front of the camera again. Well, it seems that he found just that (as well as his next directing project) in a drama titled REMEMBERING MARK TWAIN. Producer Albert Ruddy tells Moviehole: "I'm doing another movie with Clint in the spring called "Remembering Mark Twain". He's directing the movie, and he's gonna bookend the movie playing Samuel Clemens in the hospital. It's a really sweet, beautiful movie. So that's what I'm all about!" Awesome. Hey, being onscreen for 40 years doesn't just go away overnight.

Vitriol

No - that was sarcasm, not vitriol. Ahhh, dear sweert vitriol, the most overused internet term of 2006, and the mark of someone who has frequented the AV Club, looking for new and exciting ways to sounds like a psuedointellectual gassbag.

Well, there's no question, you certainly are an internet journalist, clinging to a small, predictable grab bag of buzzwords. Kudos I give to you sir! Excelsior! And good luck with your site, I enjoy reading it when joblo.com's servers are down.

Oh I hope this is true. Clint Eastwood is too good an actor to pass (himself) up. He's a wonderful director, be sure (as well as writer, musician, etc.), but damn what a fine actor. Don't stop!

Back to the story...

Sounds like a good idea right up until you picture Mark Twain doing the growling voice Clint is doing in GRAN TORINO...

Um...wow. I am amazed at that kind of vitriolic response....to a simple request. Seems that in this day and age people will say awful things with the anonymous protection of the Internet that they would never say in person. Yes, I did plug my site, but other outlets who carried the story did too, so, there you have it.

You should contact the staff directly, instead of whining and plugging your site.

Actually, Mr. Ruddy told Moviehole nothing of the sort. He told my site Cannonball Run Pit Stop [link]. I love passing items onto you guys, but credit where credit is due, ok?

I remember seeing something on here a while back with Val Kilmer in Mark Twain make-up. What ever happened with that?
