Tues Top Ten: Eye Patch Cool

by Nathaniel R

In the new filmA Private WarRosamund Pike plays real life war correspondent Marie Colvin (killed in 2012) who ran straight for trouble to cover it for the Sunday Times.Critics have been enthralled with her work in the film,often mentioning 'Oscar worthiness'.Jeff Schneider recently said "if NicoleKidmangave that same performance we'd all be talking about it as a potential frontrunner".I haven't yet seen the film but there is definitely truth in thae general implications of that statement that some actors carry with them a head start in terms of perception of awards-worthiness.

In honor of Pike's new eye-patched role,and to distract us from election worries,a tuesday top ten featuring one-eyed favs from both feature films and TV series.


10The Chevalier du Balibari(Patrick Magee) inBarry Lyndon(1975)
Magee was one of the best characters actors of the 60s and 70s,wasn't he?Strange that he got so little awards love during his career (apart from that Tony win forMarat/Sade).

Time to play Streaming Roulette.Each month,to survey new streaming titles we freeze frame the films at random places with the scroll bar and whatever comes up first,that's what we share.No cheating.What does Amazon Prime offer us for free viewing this month?Let's survey...

Wasn't your old dog named Digby?

Pushing Daisies(Seasons 1 and 2)
In case you wanted something actually worth binge-watching.This series is so perfect,from its macabre plots,to its quirky romance,to its colorful design,through its curiously moving musical numbers.I miss it so much.Maybe we should watch the entire series again?

Missi - Bzzzzzzzzz!

-by Missi Pyle

PUSHING DAISIES "Bzzzzzzzzz!(2008)"

Bryan Fuller(Pushing Daisies,Hannibal) is sooooo good.His writing is insanely magical.I keep begging him to make me a regular in one of his shows.We keep trying but I never quite get the job.So he once in awhile lets me play someone fabulous."Betty Bee"?Come OOOON!!!!

I actually cut the tip of my finger off on camera while snipping roses in a scene on this job.
I held the tip of my finger to stop the blood from coming out until the end of the scene.They were very impressed I didn't stop the scene right after I cut it.But I'm from the theatre -- the show must go on!
previously on 'The Missi Experience': gone girl, working actor, upcoming projects
