Good Morning, World

A very happy 38th birthday to Casey Affleck today - otherwise known as "The Actually Talented Affleck." Alright so maybe I did call him my least favorite leg of the love triangle in my review of the upcoming Ain't Them Bodies Saints but I didn't exactly say he was bad. Ben Foster was just so good that Casey's mumbling never quite stood a chance. Anyway he was absolutely wonderful in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and that's what these pictures are from, so there.

Looking at this scene this morning I find myself wishing it played out a little differently (of course I do) - maybe something like the bathtub scene from The Talented Mr. Ripley? Paul Schdeinder needs to get in there with him, it's chilly outside! But no, never, movies are always splashing cold water on my dreams.
