Holy crap, Durand Durand was the friar in Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet? Have seen both several times, never connected the two. That's some serious range there.

That is one of the freakiest movies I've ever seen.

Intrigued me and scared the bejeezus out of me all at once.

I'm not sure how I'd feel as actor if my signature role largely involved being upstaged by Jane Fonda's (admittedly very nice at the time) tits.

/I'd probably be ok with it.

Brain skipped riiiiight over the whole "Milo O" part and saw "Shia" for some odd reason. Wishful thinking I guess...

Save a prayer for him until the morning after.

I liked his work in Arcadia.

He also appeared in the Duran Duran concert film Arena, one of those misjudged 80s things of trying to put a story onto live concert (see also Abba: The Movie).

RIP Duran Duran


It's funny because that is, in fact, where they got the name.

Best memory of Barbarella was laying in a hospital bed, drugged out of my skull and SciFi was playing it in a late night block.

RIP.

I always thought he was best known for playing Dana Carvey's mentor in 'Oppirtunity Knocks'.

You haven't really seen too many movies, then.  It's cheesy space T&A.  Nothing more.

You want freaky?  Try Liquid Sky, or the unrated version of Caligula.

I figured it was as the judge in "The Verdict."
