So I just watched “Pacific Rim”. Have you ever heard of that? Yep, of course, you have. The thing about this movie is, of course, it’s really amazing, but there’s one actor whom I knew before but never paid too much attention.
Burn Gorman. He’s freaking awesome. And in Pacific Rim I noticed (I mean, it was quite obvious) that he bears resemblance to Colin Clive. If you ask me, they REALLY look alike. Quite the same traits, quite the same body language… and Burn’s voice. Well, I mean, because of his voice I’ve noticed this resemblance in the first place.
There’s definitely something in it…
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3eFAjcOsPI) yep, that voice. That goddamn British accent.
Reblogged this before, but it’s still relevant. Their noses are a little different but they are extremely similar.
An understanding friend drove down University Ave and took a picture so I could see Ralph’s name on the marquee since I can’t get there this weekend to see The Four Feathers. John Clements should be up there instead of June Duprez. Anyway, thought it was a good excuse for a then-and-later toast from Ralph, 1939 and 1983.
Ugh, Colin Clive’s name on a marquee!

Yes, I think the oldest is Olivia de Havilland which I’m all nervous about because she’s a doll and she just turned 98 this year and I think she’s the last of the 1930s stars now that Betty is gone :(
