If you ever meet Wallace Shawn, don't tell him you loved him in "The Princess Bride"; he will probably smile politely but a little piece of him will die inside. Instead tell him you watched "The Designated Mourner" or some other play he's written, and you'll make his week.

Part of me wanted to know more about the unrest in the country in question, and I was frustrated we didn't get to know more. But I think that's part of the point: none of the three characters give all that much of a shit for the underclass, they're in the same social stratum as the rulers, and the condition of the underclass is an intellectual exercise at best.

Vanya.

How would he feel if you complimented him on My Dinner With Andre?


Has anyone ever mentioned to him that his first and last names are switched?

I somehow feel he'd be more proud of his Princess Bride appearance than his recurring role on Family Guy.

I loved him in Simon, the 1979 Alan Arkin comedy. Seriously, go watch Simon, it's funny.

Tell him you watched The Designated Mourner and skipped around a bit, finding it kinda boring, gave it a few minutes, and turned it off.

He'll be delighted you didn't say "Inconceivable!".

ps titular line at 1:28:17

The first words spoken in this are "The designated mourner ... I am the designated mourner".

I understand skipping around if you start at the beginning and it's not holding your attention, but you got bored even before the first word? Defies human imagination!

He was amazing as the principal in A Goofy Movie.

What if you told him you loved him in Southland Tales?

I loved Southland Tales.
