DPK Wants to Play in The Warriors

“Warriooooors, come out to playaaaayyy…” David Patrick Kelly’s famous line, and the fact that it was improvised, drew me to watch this film.


And yet, the most fascinating part of the movie was how it managed to become so popular. The outrageous outfits (face-painted, bat-wielding baseball players?) and the dance-like fighting techniques (that was only okay in West Side Story) made me wonder…

Turns out, as my research led me to discover, the film was seriously controversial at the time.

Why, Adrien? Why?

The most inappropriate part of the upcoming film InAPPropriate Comedy (2013) would be your participation in it, Adrien Brody. Rob Schneider– slightly disappointing, but not inconceivable. Lindsay Lohan– I won’t even go there.

But you?

You have an impressive curriculum vitae– for the most part. Your dedication to your character in The Jacket (2005) was reputable. Same goes for your contribution in The Pianist (2002), an impeccable performance. And then there was your substantial role in Midnight in Paris (2011) as the Spanish painter, Salvador Dali– a job well done.

But this… This is just for funsies, right? You owe someone a favor? Did you lose a bet? If you needed a break, fine. I’ll watch it, for blog’s sake!

Alas! I am still hopeful for what’s “in the works.” With a cast comprised of Liam Neeson, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, and Casey Affleck (just to mention a few), a romance drama like The Third Person (2013) might just be your shot at redemption. (Although– a good cast doesn’t necessarily guarantee a good movie. I mean, look at Movie 43.) If that doesn’t help, we can just wait with fingers crossed for the comedy drama The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), which also features a pretty good lineup.

In the meantime, I’ll keep your Gillette commercial on loop:
