RIP James Caan
According to the person running his Twitter account (see down below) the actor James Caan passed away yesterday, which is a sad one! I am sure most of you will say The Godfather when it comes to his legacy but Misery will always be the one for me -- Kathy Bates obviously storms away with the bulk of the attention in that movie but I think he's brilliant in it too. Just now I can conjure up in my mind's eye so many of his sweaty, exhausted reactions to the horrors befalling him, and that's talent.
