OMG, I didn't realize Laurence Olivier had played Othello!

What about Yul Brynner in the King & I? That missed the list.

^ Etc, Etc, Etc! I have not read the list yet but I am surprised that is not on there either.


Johnny has always said he has Cherokee heritage, which I am aware how common that tale is, but I honestly do not doubt it. I've always seen it when I looked at him and those beautiful features, but I do live near Cherokee and many of the people on tribal roll are whiter than me. And I am pretty darn see through.

I have read articles where people dismiss that all together and some where people ask if he is native enough. He does come from an area with a large Cherokee/Creek population. Some are not happy that he was adopted by the Cherokee or given a name by the Comanche. Most people I know could care less and are more than willing to give the movie a shot.

He said he got inspiration from a painting of a warrior, which is how he wanted Tonto to be portrayed (as opposed to the side kick) and he felt the need to embrace stereotypes for a moment, to turn them on their head. I'm curious to see how he portrays him.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I'm glad this reminded me of the article I read about his character motivation. I need to find that again. I wanted to see the painting. I know it was by a female artist, and it sounded pretty interesting.

The warriors face was divided in 4 quarters, which he found to be intriguing, and his guide was a bird in the distance. That is where he got the inspiration to put the bird, Tonto's guide, on his head.

Let your mind be your guide, and all that

I saw the movie on Sunday...loved it. I'm googling to try to find a black bird to wear on my head with my costume for Halloween. Jim thinks I'm crazy, but he gets it.
