He'll always be the guy that inadvertently starts the firefight at the end of True Romance for me....

Typecasting?

This is the greatest loss to Hollywood since the retirement of Joe Piscopo....

He's still alive? I thought the Langoliers ate him.

That movie sucked so hard.

That's why it's so awesome. Nothing that bad could have been on accident.

One of those rare incidents where someone left the business and isn't clawing at the walls to get back in nor has turned into an indignant douchebag.

Go cat go.

Yeah, he seems to have a level head and is enjoying what he's doing.

He was a pretty decent James Bond.
 
2012-03-17 03:17:46 AM
I've actually caught a bit of his show, truly passionate about what he's doing - so good for him.

Get the fark outta here....

"In California you say to somebody, 'Could you help me carry this heavy thing?' 'No, 'cause it's bicep day at the gym and I don't want to pre-exhaust the muscle.' "

haha hilarious

This no longer concerns me right? So I'm just going to leave.

I'd buy a house from Balki.

True, but Bronson did a good job playing crazy. I watched it again recently on Netflix streaming just to see him act like a wacko.

No I cannot

I've always wondered why he just sorta stopped doing movies, thanks for the link. However, I still can't get the craziness that he was during his time on The Surreal Life. What the fark was he doing/on?

With a little lemon twist.

Pretty sure Joe still does stand-up.

Sadly.
 
2012-03-17 06:37:35 AM
I think it's awesome he quit Hollywood. I can't wait to watch new show.

This...it takes a mix of brains, serenity and luck to get off the entertainment industry merry-go-round at the right time and not many people can do it. Usually they don't get all the way out, they just get a lot more selective about what they're doing. I'm thinking Daniel Day-Lewis, Natalie Merchant...in sports, Mike Mussina...

Except that this "article" is just an attempt to peddle a farming TV show.

"oh, I've left show business because of my other hobby. Incidently, I have a new show about said hobby that you should really check out!"

Did they ever find a vehicle for Ellen Cleghorne?

Now I'm imagining Mark Linn-Baker--now a bald and fat little man--crying about how he hasn't seen work in twenty years and still holds out hope for a Perfect Strangers movie.

Apparently, he's been active on Broadway.

Also, apparently there's an Internet Broadway Database.

www.perfectstrangers.tv

He looks like he's preparing for a role as "slightly older Jay Mohr."
 
2012-03-17 08:43:47 AM
Now he's so happy he do the dance of joy

Die die die die do die da die da die HEY HEY HEY HEY HEY
(jumps in Larry's arms)

Bronson Pinchot once called me 'Babe', over the phone. It was one of the proudest moments in my life.

I immediately called my wife to tell her.

"I never did love Hollywood, I just loved the work," he says. "In California you say to somebody, 'Could you help me carry this heavy thing?' 'No, 'cause it's bicep day at the gym and I don't want to pre-exhaust the muscle.' "

Heh.

Why would you use this as your face shot on IMDB though? Poor guy looks like hell now. Kinda like the Dad from ALF. The 80s were great to you, everyday since then... not so much.

Too funny!

/Also disappointing if it's true

He doesn't look that bad, actually. At least he's no longer sporting that hair he had back then.

He's slowly turning into Sylvester McCoy!

Hi. How are you? My name's Elliot, and I'm with the Cub Scouts of America. We're... we're selling uncut cocaine to get to the jamboree.

So I take it the bibybabka business didn't explode like he thought it would?

Pinchot has also been narrating audiobooks - he's pretty good at that, apparently.

Yep. Serge was the best part of the whole movie.
 
2012-03-17 01:13:29 PM
Good one, subby. Also, enjoyed his work in Beverly Hills Cop.
 
2012-03-17 01:56:44 PM

I see what you did there.

Pinchot now owns five houses in Harford and restored them all using only only salvaged objects - a process documented in The Bronson Pinchot Project, a new series on the DIY Network.

Yeah, left Hollywood...
 
2012-03-17 03:06:37 PM
Went to high school with the guy but didn't know him personally. Always a bit of a character but never imagined him as an actor so it was very cool to see his success. Go Tigers!

DeathByGeekSquad: I've actually caught a bit of his show, truly passionate about what he's doing - so good for him.


You know, it could be all a ploy....like, he's acting. The final episode he'll break the forth wall and say "KEEEEEDING!"
 
2012-03-17 03:21:22 PM
On second thought...only Kaufman could pull that one
 
2012-03-17 03:22:56 PM
Bronson...Begin again
 
2012-03-17 03:56:56 PM
Axel it's not hard to say Seeerge. Surge? It sounds like a detergent.

Sounds to me like he's combining two things he loves into one. Who could argue with that?
