Well, Vickie wanted to talk about Sam but of course she mentioned it in the train wreck that was the Green Mile thread. But it's definitely a subject for the moment with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind on the way and Sam having an apparently excellent role in the film. I agree that he showed some strong range going from Green Mile to Galaxy Quest. Not only that but I thought he had many of the funniest lines in GQ. "Is there air out there? You don't know!" I also thought he was one of the stronger points in Charlie's Angels (a film I enjoyed in it's cartoony ways for the most part). His Eric Knox is fun and colorful in a way that makes you remember he was there. But then he comes back with his effort in Made, and to me that really shows his stuff. That character is again highly different from Knox. And then you lay all 4 roles side by side and you see very little overlap between them. Even the less confident characters from GQ and Made are different in how they are weaker personalities. One is the whiny jerk while the other is really just trying to be nice and do his job well. We derive humor from Fleegman getting put in his place while we are highly discomforted to see that hotel clerk get pushed around like that. I can't remember what I thought of him in Heist to be honest. And now comes what looks to be a role with incredible range and personality. I have to tell you that when he puts on the hat in the trailers, I see Chuck Barris in his behavior. Granted that Barris has a very imitatable (not a word) personality, but still it represents yet another unique character for Rockwell. I suspect that Confessions is going to make Rockwell a semi-household name come January/Febuary. Even more so if he's in the running for an Oscar nom. He certainly will be on the press junket hitting all the major talk shows, etc.
