I've got a weird love/hate thing going on with Holly Hunter. Or it has veered from love to hate back to love again over the years. Something like that. Loved her in Broadcast News, but hated her for breaking Albert Brooks' heart. Hated her in The Piano, but loved the fact that I didn't have to her her talk. Loved her again in Home for the Holidays, but hated her when she refused to punch her stupid sister in her stupid twat!
Now I love her again. This time in Saving Grace. And I have Gia to thank for that. She just recently turned me on to it in its second season. Normally I can't stand those preachy "religion is gonna save the wicked sinner" shows, but this one isn't very preachy. I like her "angel" and I really like her dog. And dog spelled another way is ogd, or something like that.
Her character reminds me a little of Denis Leary's character in Rescue Me. The show is pretty similar too. He talks to dead people and lost someone close in 9/11. She talks to an angel and lost someone close in the Oklahoma City bombing. Both drink (or did drink) and fuck around. One is a cop, the other is a firefighter. Strong supporting casts. Very similar.
Last Thursday we went to this cool BBQ joint in NYC and we spoke with one of the managers. He told us one of his more famous customers is Holly Hunter. He said she was tiny and gorgeous in person. I can believe it.
Random Wiki: Ankazomboron, besides being one of the most bad-ass words I have ever typed, is a town in Madagascar. It's also a commune. Bunch of long-haired hippie types. Wait...I have long hair now. Crap!
