Kilmer on... Mini-Me?

07.22.2008

News today is that Val Kilmer actually came up with the original idea upon which Mini-Me - from the AUSTIN POWERS movies - was based.

[I created] Mini-Me you know... [On] ‘Island of Dr. Moreau’ I told Marlon Brando my plan to save my performance just in case there was a giant hole in the second half - I was going to strap the little man to my chest... And, you know, you can’t get around that visual. And then he [Brando] STOLE my little man! I asked Mike Myers about it myself. He said, ‘absolutely’ [it came from that movie]... Same studio made it. And he saw a screening and said, ‘that’s really funny.’”

So there you have it. Val Kilmer is the bomb. He was Batman, he gave one of the all-time great performances in TOMBSTONE, he was Iceman in TOPGUN, starred in KISS KISS BANG BANG and played the coolest non-De Niro/Pacino character in HEAT. I heard he's in training now to pole vault a hundred stories into the air and nunchuck Voltron. This guy is the man.
Extra Tidbit: He went out with Cindy Crawford back in '96. Why wouldn't he?

HOW can you mention the high points of his legacy without mentioning the King Neek Reevers from Top Secret?
One of the finest performances in film to date.

He may have been the twerp who put a potentially awesome horror director Richard Stanley out of commission (among his "crimes") - but hey, who has never been a sonofabitch at one time of his life? Yet I never forget how funny he was in Top Secret and another cool thing - he was The Doors' Jim Morrison.

Good in my book

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang was terribly underrated in my opinion. What buried it so deeply?

Don't forget about his small yet awesome role in True Romance or Top Secret for that matter!

I'd still love him if he hasn't been such a sonofabitch to Joanne Whalley.

Very funny article! I personally have no problem with Mr. Thoo's writing style!

In regards to Kilmer, the guy deserves more credit than he often gets. He was the shit in Tombstone, Wonderland, Heat and The Salton Sea!

He IS the man

Agreed. Great article... again. I laugh my ass off everytime you write.


Hunglowman, you can check out imdb if you'd like movie news written in the proper form of straight forward english. I'll stick with the shit that makes me laugh my ass off.

Kilmer for President.

I advise everyone to listen to Kilmer on the Kiss Kiss audio commentary. This guy is more clever (and deranged) than most comedians out there. that includes that comedian named Thoo.
