Cool Videos: Sam Rockwell dancin' up a storm

05.20.2010

I'm posting this because I know how many of you out there are Sam Rockwell fans. Lately he's been on a roll, between MOON and IRON MAN 2, but as it turns out he’s been acting for quite some time. Who knew?

This video is his song and dance audition for CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND, where he’s trying out for the part of Chuck Barris, a game show host turned CIA hitman, a part that he did end up getting in the end.

I just thought it was funny, and it shows a talent of Rockwell you might not have known he had (though there is a little bit of this put into Justin Hammer dancing intro I feel). I fully expect the man to win an Oscar someday, and I’m curious what the role will be that will finally push him over the edge.

Extra Tidbit: Rockwell is…42?? Wow, I would have guessed early thirties.

He tries to get it in every movie -

He did a bit in the first "Charlie's Angels" too... and at the wrap party for that film, he was the last to leave the dance floor.

The "It's George Clooney and Sam Rockwell! They do pornos!" bit cracked me up.

I feel bad for Rockwell in that film. He gave it his all but his character was so horribly written that he came off as a joke.

Had Justin Hammer been set up to be an actual major threat to Tony. Then his lame little dance number may have worked better.

My good sir, I think his dancing in Iron Man2 was one of the few good things in the movie.. At least for me that bit made watching IM2 not a COMPLETE waste of my time

He should have won for Moon. He lost out on that because Sony never submitted the movie to the Academy with the excuse that it might be pirated.

He might finally gain some attention with "Betty Anne Waters", it stars Hilary Swank and he plays her brother, wrongfully convicted of murder. Most actors would get attention based on that plot alone, if Rockwell doesn't, there seriously might be a conspiracy behind him not getting nominated.

Actor - Moon
Supporting Actor - Snow Angels
Supporting Actor - Jesse James
Actor - Confessions of a Dangerous Mind
Supporting Actor - Green Mile

If you guys haven't seen him in Snow Angels, check

He should have two Oscars already. Supporting for THE GREEN MILE and Best for MOON. People have won for a lot less.

He's awesome

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind was one of my favorite movies of the past decade and one of my favorite performances. And he seems to dance in most movies he's in.

Rockwell is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. Moon was an incredible movie and its a damn shame he didn't get nominated. I love when he throws a random dance number into his films. The best is in Moon when he turns on "walking on sunshine" and does that stupid dance. Even more proof why he needs an oscar

Sam Rockwell is awesome

Speaking of his dancing, does nobody remember the small dance scene he kinda did in Charlie's Angels? Some of those leg movements clearly predate his Justin Hammer days!

I'm pretty sure thats the first movie I ever saw Rockwell in way back when I was a young lad. Even back then I remember thinking that guy was a great actor and that dance kicked ass.

Rockwell is the bomb!!

He got snubbed for his part(s) in Moon and Confessions. I always find it funny when I see his small part in TMNT...his age doesn't surprise me since that was ages ago.

Check out the east warehouse over on Lairdman Island.

Yeah, he's been acting for some time. And he's quite good. From MOON to THE GREEN MILE to CONFESSIONS, he gets more "who is this guy? He's going to be big one day" reactions than anyone.
