Star Trek Beyond is the 3rd greatest Star Trek movie.

I'm not sure which was a better character, Chet from Weird Science or Simon from True Lies. They were both so wonderfully repugnant. They really stole their scenes. He added an amazing flair to his characters.

It's pretty close.  Definitely my two favorite roles of his (love Tombstone, but he was not notable in his role).

When he tells Wyatt "For chrissakes, would you cover yourself!" and hands him the towel it floors me every time. The guy who played Wyatt just barely manages to not crack up.

Not a top notch megastar, but definitely someone who made any movie he was in better. Though his role in Aliens annoyed me. But that wasn't his acting, he played the role beautifully, I just hated that character. Forgot he was in True Lies. Haven't seen that in ages.

That actor who played Wyatt was ATROCIOUS.

But yeah, that is a hilarious moment.

He's one of my top 10 actors of all time because he nailed every role he played. Such a talented guy and then come to find out reading these articles now he appears to have been just a great Father and husband as well. Such a bummer.

Such a bummer when you find out people that died were just all around great human beings.

And utter pond scum just carry on being horrible people in their private life and continue to get lauded and respected.

i'll say no more.

to be clear, we're talking about Wyatt Donnelly and not Wyatt Earp, correct?

Yes. Note that I was responding to the Weird Science quote.  :biggrin:
