TGT11: Actor to Actor #9


What's the "Actor to Actor" series? First I pick out my twenty favorite performances of the year. Then I mix those twenty names all up and pick out two names at random. And then I imagine what a conversation between those two characters would be like. Rinse and repeat. For fun! So let's get to it. Here's MNPP's ninth pair of favorite performances of 2011....

The Artist's George Valentin (Jean Dujardin)
and Young Adult's Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron)

Mavis: Well are you gonna say something 
or are you just gonna stand there smiling
like a fucking serial killer?
George: ...
Mavis: I can't hear you! You're just flapping 
your goddamn lips like a deaf-mute or some shit.
George: [does a little tap dance]
Mavis: And he wins an Oscar.
