No, I dreamt about Michelle Pfeiffer in those days.

Wasn't able to pull it up. But, I love it. I really don't like thinking of things in that way. People do what they do. Everyone has their way of communicating and sometimes it's driven by love or hate or fear or kindness or meanness. Whatever. I don't want to ridicule someone's behavior. It's all pretty much okay with me. The only thing I don't condone is intentional cruelty.

She knows. She's just pretending she doesn't know me.

The people from "Community" called and checked my availability at one point. But, John Goodman got the part. I always lose parts to him. We're very alike.

BSPINER1240 karma

No, I was unaware of it at the time. I have been subsequently made aware of the connection. Had I known, I might've pushed more in that direction, but then, it might've thrown things off. I'm very moved that kids with Autism have responded and related to the character.

Of course I remember you...well, not you, but your sister. Not sure I ultimately felt okay about that. But, hey, it's her chest.

BSPINER1030 karma

That's easy. My son.

BSPINER1012 karma

I'm sure it has in someways, but I'm so emotionally repressed I've never noticed it.

You're welcome. Measure of a Man. Sleep. Sleep. Probably not, but never say never.

The make-up was a nightmare. Particularly the contact lenses. Took an hour fifteen. That process was made very pleasurable by Michael Westmore, a genius and a very nice man.
