To be fair, the guy was picking his feet in Poughkeepsie.

To be fair, Neil Diamond has a medical need to choke hobos.

Before slapping the man Hackman was heard exclaiming, "You wanna talk some jive? I'll talk some jive like you've never heard!"

Cant slap the homeless. Thems the rules.

Yes. Oh, yes.
And Gene Hackman will slap you silly if you act the fool.
Everybody knows this.

He's from the 70s and he just don't care.
He's like the honey badger, baby.
He'll slap your shiat.
 
2012-10-31 10:07:39 AM  
Did he call the guy "Coltrane"?
 
2012-10-31 10:10:34 AM  
And?

It's cool, the guy used to play ball for him in college back in Ithaca.

"No I will leave you IN this, Carl!"
 
2012-10-31 10:19:34 AM  
And that's why you're homeless. Bad life choices.
 
2012-10-31 10:20:30 AM  
I do not tolerate assassins and hobos in this town.

Guy thought he was farking with Gene Hackman, Actor. Forgot he was farking with Gene Hackman, USMC

People die every day. And for what? For nothing. What do we do? What do *you* do? You take care of the ones you think you can save. Good doctors do the correct thing. Great doctors have the guts to do the right thing.

I guess you think I'm kicking you, Bob. But it ain't so. What I'm doing is talking, you hear? I'm talking to all those villains down there in Kansas. I'm talking to all those villains in Missouri. And all those villains down there in Cheyenne. And what I'm saying is there ain't no whore's gold. And if there was, how they wouldn't want to come looking for it anyhow.
 
2012-10-31 10:45:04 AM  
Where do you think this is, Otisville?

Golf clap.

Yeah, the homeless are fascinating animals. Dumb as a fence post but very intuitive. In that way they're not too different from high school girls: they may not have a brain in their head but they do know all the boys want to fark 'em.
 
2012-10-31 10:51:44 AM  

HotIgneous Intruder: Golf clap.


loki see loki do beat me to the reference. And if I hadn't been so eager to post I would have had the mind to replace 'villians' with 'homeless'.
 
2012-10-31 10:52:19 AM  
When told it's inappropriate to slap homeless people, Hackman replied, "That's true. It's still frowned upon. But then, what isn't these days, right? "

PsyLord: Times are hard for Otis after his plans for Otisburg fell through...


Not sure if serious...

Gene Hackman is a former Marine. He joined the Core when he was 16. If he had meant to hurt the guy, he would have hurt the guy.
 
2012-10-31 11:07:33 AM  
Don't worry, I'm sure that after he sues Gene, he won't be homeless anymore.
 
2012-10-31 11:24:17 AM  
I do get in fights with panhandlers sometimes. Its an outlet for my rage-aholicism and need to verablly abuse

Your hobo is slapped.

(Not that anyone cares, but this is one of my top ten "clicking through channels and will stop to watch, even though I've seen it a million times" movies)

(also, it kills me that "The Quick and the Dead" has Hackman, Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, Gary Sinise, Lance Henricksen, and Keith David in it and Sharon Stone is the headliner.
 
2012-10-31 11:38:51 AM  
The authorities are still figuring out what he meant by "There's no whore's gold here!"
 
2012-10-31 11:41:40 AM  
"You heard me, Coltrane."

The hobo refused to kneel before Zod. Rookie mistake, lucky just to get off with a slapping.

/was also ogling Miss Tessmacher

Don't forget Sven-Ole Thorsen! That guy is awesome!
 
2012-10-31 12:05:12 PM  
That's nothing. Gwyneth Paltrow is so superstitious that whenever she starts a new movie she kills a hobo with a hammer.
 
2012-10-31 12:07:20 PM  
You been talking about that Queen of yours, again, Bob?

Everyone in New Mejico knows that Gene doesn't like people approaching him. If it had been an autograph hunter, the poor bastard would be in a coma.

/Have met him several times. He was adequately civil once.

The phrase "killed a drifter to get an erection" stands out in my mind (rrrOWR), but I think we can give subby benefit of the doubt.

The panhandlers around here seem to be getting more and more aggressive. Makes me want to stop going downtown all together.

Dwight_Yeast: Did he call the guy "Coltrane"?


No, he didn't. But if he did... you wouldn't be able to do anything about it, would you?

The guy called his wife a coont, according to the story in the Daily Mail. (I don't know what this link says, because I can't see it.) Go ahead and hit him

I'm a little saddened that this is the only 'Hoosiers' reference so far.
 
2012-10-31 01:18:19 PM  
I hope he gave him a Popeye Doyle slap and not a Royal Tenebaum slap
 
2012-10-31 01:33:53 PM  
For a moment I had him confused with Gene Wilder which made this whole thread seem very, very strange.

A message seeking comment was left for Hackman's publicists at Guttman Associates in Beverly Hills..
