Cross-over roles E-mail

Many actors in Hollywood tend to get typecast for certain roles they can perform.  Some are just really good at what they do, and others are just so-so at acting.  Unrealitymag.com has compiled a list of eight dramtic actors who have crossed over into the realm of comedy and weren't caught with their pants down.  Interestingly enough, three out of the eight happen to be Coen films:  Brad Pitt for his work in Burn After Reading, George Clooney for his work in O Brother Where Art Thou? and Jeff Bridges as The Dude in The Big Lebowski.  I think I see a pattern here, but you probably want to check out the rest of the list.

I also posted another fan email last week that I forgot to mention.  The Preacher wrote in about anachronism.  Hopefully I was the only person that wasn't 100% sure on that meaning.  I had to look it up and found this definition -

1. something or someone that is not in its correct historical or chronological time, esp. a thing or person that belongs to an earlier time: The sword is an anachronism in modern warfare.
2. an error in chronology in which a person, object, event, etc., is assigned a date or period other than the correct one: To assign Michelangelo to the 14th century is an anachronism.

The Preacher was noticing that we tend to look back a couple decades to reminisce about glory days.  Wondering what this has to do with The Big Lebowski? Check out the link below to read his whole email.
