Hey....Hey Chris Cooper. I just wanted you to know that I think you are a really really (really) good actor. I first saw you act in "American Beauty" where you portrayed that really hard line father of the protagonist. The ex-Marine who collected Nazi memorabilia and turned out to be a closeted homosexual. I thought that....well (uh oh, I'm blushing a bit) when you were so defeated in the scene with John Doman in "The Company Men" and you made yourself allllllmost cry but your character was so quietly and unassumingly masculine that you gulped it down. Wow. That was also really really great. Mr. Cooper, I just wanted you to know....that....well, if I came across a magic genie, and the genie was all like "Hey, I will grant you a wish...just one." I would probably be like "Well, let me think about this one." And I'd think about it for a while, a few minutes probably, in silence. I would emerge from said think tank of solace and say..."Hey, Genie. I want an acting career where I am respected by my peers, work regularly and get to play awesome roles and am not swarmed by crazy fans*. I am wishing for an acting career like Chris Cooper's."
Poof! I'd get it, and it would be really fun, there would be much rejoicing.
Thanks. I guess. Now if you would please let me finish my meal, I would appreciate it. Best of luck to you, by the way.
