Thumbsucker

Mike Mills, Director
Appeared at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival For his feature directorial debut, music video veteran Mike Mills chose to adapt a coming-of-age saga about shame and adolescence by novelist Walter Kirn. Lou Pucci plays the awkward and insecure 17-year-old son of equally insecure parents (Tilda Swinton and Vincent D'Onofrio) who consults an unorthodox orthodontist (Keanu Reeves) to rid himself of the film's titular fixation. The result is nothing short of a personal transformation. Special Jury Prize winner at the Sundance Film Festival. "Beautifully acted... marvelously crafted" -- Salon.

'Law & Order' star Vincent D'Onofrio hits the beach

'Law & Order' star Vincent D'Onofrio hits the beach for Coney Island sandcastle building competition


He may play a tough-as-nails cop on TV, but it was just another day at the beach yesterday for "Law & Order" star Vincent D'Onofrio.

Spatula in hand, the Brooklyn-born actor teamed with his wife, Carin, and kids to compete in the 21st annual Sand Sculpting Contest in Coney Island, building a nearly 2-foot tall castle - and a scary-looking dragon inside the fortress.

"We watched this morning on YouTube how to do sandcastles, and we just figured it out when we got here," said D'Onofrio, more commonly known as moody Det. Robert Goren on the hit crime drama.

He even drew a blueprint of the medieval structure on a piece of paper before heading to Brooklyn.

"We never thought we were as good as we are doing this," he said.

Team D'Onofrio took second place in the family category at the competition.

About 30 amateurs from across the city, and two professionals, used 50 mounds of sand dumped on the Boardwalk to mold sculptures ranging from dragons to sharks to buxom babes.

Two creative beach bums shared the top prize.

Air conditioning-installer Victor Ozan, 38, of East New York, built a 4-foot-wide elephant using only a shovel. While New Jersey-native Hector Patino built a life-size woman posing in a sexy position.

"I'm with this woman here," said Patino, 52, pointing toward his girlfriend. "She was my model."

Jarrett Rusnak on watching Vincent work

A post from the blog of Jarrett Rusnak, who recently spent time on the set of "Rabbit". Mr Rusnak is a writer, producer and director with his own company, Dacian Productions, Inc. in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Jarrett tells us that he plans on "writing an article about my time on set watching Vincent work." We are looking forward to that!

You can browse through his site and blog posts at www.jarrettrusnak.com

Thanks Jarrett for allowing us to publish your post.
Thanks to Chris C. for the link.

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Two days in a row now, I found time to steal away from the rest of my day to write. Got other things done too. The producers on Rabbit are impressed with my work. Might be some doors opening there too.

My headspace is generally good, so long as I can keep up this pace. Mostly I just need to feel like I’m doing something towards accomplishing my goals. Monday’s musings really helped.

I’m not on set today, so after I’m done my bit of writing, I’ll be looking through footage at home. If I eat my Wheaties, I might even be able to cut a few more segments together out of Damian’s interview. That would be ambitious though, so I won’t make any promises.

[several minutes pass]

Vincent D’Onofrio just walked into Atlantis. We fell into a conversation about the shit that was going through my mind on Monday. He talked about his own issues with juggling projects -- making decisions about when to let some go, and when keep others on the plate. He said it’s something you just learn with age. It’s the most I talked to him this whole show. More than that, he actually seemed interested in talking to me.

I’ve been watching him work and I’ve never been more impressed with an actor on a set (or stage). You could learn so much about the craft, just watching him figure out his blocking. I have a whole thing that I’m planning to write about him later. Won’t get into it now.

Mostly, I feel a burning need to get into my script. I need to write something!


The 10 greatest TV detectives of all time

OC Register, 8.4.11

Several weeks ago, the Watcher asked for readers’ help as he undertook the task of naming the 10 greatest detectives in TV history.

It turned out to be a much more difficult case than I had imagined. There were many opinions, and even more names to consider that were not nominated.

I set a few guidelines to help narrow the field.

First, I limited myself to American series, which probably knocked out many favorites, like Inspector Morse, Hamish Macbeth, Miss Marple and, most memorably to the Watcher, Sherlock Holmes as essayed by Jeremy Brett.

Next, no lawyers. A great case can be made for Perry Mason, but I think legal shows constitute their own genre. Maybe someday I will come up with a list of TV’s 10 greatest attorneys.

Third, the detectives could be cops, but their shows had to be primarily about solving crimes and pursuing mysteries. Serials set in police stations and other police-oriented drama – no matter how good – would be out of bounds. That’s why this list does not include Andy Sipowicz, Mick Belker or Joe Friday.

The remainder I passed through a sieve of reader opinion, historical significance and my own extreme preferences.

And so I settled on the 10 who follow, with apologies to Stu Bailey, Amos Burke, Robert T. Ironside, Joe Mannix, Harry Orwell and all six of “Charlie’s Angels.

excerpted -

2. Robert Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio), “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” 2001-11
The modern Sherlock Holmes, Goren is a character of massive brilliance and equally massive faults. D’Onofrio turned all of Goren’s habits and tics into compelling television, from his barely buried rage to his deprecating jokes to his always-amusing invasion of others’ space. How D’Onofrio avoided winning an Emmy remains an unsolvable mystery.
