Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Movie Preview

My friend Susanna is a film buff. The other day she was reading an old film magazine called Premiere, dating from September 2001. In it she found a snippet about The Salton Sea, which had a premiere date of 25th December 2001 (Christmas Day? C'mon!)

Under the subheading of "Weight Watchers" it said:
Most of the actors needed to drop weight for their roles as junkies(and consulted the same dieticians Tom Hanks used for Cast Away) - except for D'Onofrio, who plays a sadistic dealer. "He said, 'Is it okay if I gain, like, 40 or 50 pounds?'" (director) Caruso recalls. "'Because I see this guy who doesn't take care of himself and has a really bad farmer's tan.'"

This is the result.

Thanks to Eliza for the pictures.

I think it's the documentary on this where the director said that when Vincent came back to the set with the weight and stood next to him, he didn't recognise him. Not surprising really....

Oddly enough I really liked Pooh Bear. He had a very cute and cuddly quality behind the crazy personality.

Yeah Jojo ... I'd do him. LOL

I'm with Jojo,I like Pooh Bear!!! On the dvd there is an interview with Vincent where he says P.B was supposed to be entertaining...thankfully because I was worried when I found him funny :-)

if he wants to lose weight i would love to do some body exercises with him.

In my humble opinion, Vincent can try as hard as he like to look like an ugly bastard, but he fails every time.

So says the woman who confesses she even found Edgar The Bug compelling viewing.
