Containing Multitudes Since 2004
For #12 I'd like to see Mickey Rourke, also pretty mad and great.
Ill take McQueen, who walked the walk. Not only could he act, he was one helluva driver. Eevn with a bum leg, it took Mario Andretti in the last surviving Ferrari to run him and Peter Revson down at Sebring one year.And they were in a private Porsche, to boot. BCNU
Am I missing something, why was McQueen mad? I can think of many words but mad isn't one that immediately springs to mind. I know little about motorsports, but saw only last week on TCM UK a documentary on McQueen. He was also into and very good at motorcycle racing and used to do that with some stunt men friends of his. I do think he was a good actor, and hadn't really appreciated that before, probably because he is often held up as such a 'style icon' which turns me off. 'The Getaway' is a great film, but 'Bullitt' is terrible, if ever there was a case of a triumph of style over substance...
