    Perry: Go. Sleep badly. Any questions, hesitate to call.
    Harry: Bad.
    Perry: Excuse me?
    Harry: Sleep bad. Otherwise it makes it seem like the mechanism that allows you to sleep...
    Perry: What, ++++head? Who taught you grammar? Badly's an adverb. Get out. Vanish.

    I look at Connery in the league of extraordinary gentlemen. ... like Jordan playing for the wizards.

    We all pretend that didn't happen.

    There have been some pretty interesting "turn-downs" over the years.

    One that always sticks is how Sean Connery turned down the role of Gandalf to star in that League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie because he didn't understand the story of Lord of the Rings and thought the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen would be a bigger box office hit.

    OOPS.

    although i don't think LOTR would've been the same without McKellen.

    Doc Holliday was one of my favorite movie character in the 90s. I also liked Red Planet even though a lot of people didn't.

    And of course:
    Two very different outcomes would have occurred.

    1. Val Kilmer as Morpheus would have made that trilogy 10 times better.

    2. Will Smith as Neo would have made that trilogy 10 times worse.

    Agreed.

    Yeah, val should've received oscars for the doors and tombstone. I liked the saint, i wished val had made a sequel/franchise for it. At first sight was a good one. Mindhunters was interesting as well.

    Doc Holliday in Tombstone - One of my favorite performances in movie history in one of my all time favorite movies.

    Jim Morrison in The Doors - He was amazing in that movie as well.


    Also Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is one of my favorite movies as well. I love that movie.
    definitely agree about the doors movie, nobody else could have pulled that off like he did.

    Kilmer: 'Career Slump Was My Fault'

    VAL KILMER blames himself for his years in the Hollywood wilderness, because he didn't send Christmas cards to the right directors. After setting the movie scene alight in the 1990s, Kilmer's career tailed off abruptly. And the actor - currently experiencing a mini-revival - admits he is completely to blame. The 46-year-old says, "I really didn't take the business as seriously as a professional as I should have. We are all sensitive and I didn't realise how sensitive we are. People like getting Christmas cards you know. "You just don't turn down certain directors. You just don't. I didn't realise how precious time is. I thought I could work with them again, when I turned them down. "I now realise I won't get another chance. I've turned down a lot of roles. THE INSIDER is one. And I turned down THE MATRIX, LAURENCE FISHBURNE's role."
    Eh that happens to everyone. Will Smith turned down the role of Neo to do that Wild Wild West crap.

    Don't forget Real Genius. I like the scene at the end where Val Kilmer and his colleagues put a big bag of popcorn in their instructor's house and have it cooked by a laser shot from an Air Force aircraft.
