Shelley Winters had the kind of whining voice that could drive someone to commit murder - kind of like what happened to her character in An American Tragedy.

Christian Bale. He's a psycho. My partner thinks he's a great actor and likes to watch American Psycho whenever it's available.

Michael Rappaport. P.S. I don't think Adam Driver is actually crazy. He's a pretty disciplined actor. And IMHO, the poster child for ugly hot.....

If I live to be a thousand, I will NVER understand what anybody saww in Andy Kaufman, orhis performance style!

He was weird, boring, and cringey all the time, and twee and annoying on Taxi. I will never get the admiration for someone who seemed like he just got out of a nuthouse.

by Anonymousreply 2508/01/2020

Adam Driver is a former Marine so he's at least a little bit crazy.

R25 I did enjoy Tony Clifton

Andy Kaufman pushed boundaries and was against the mainstream. He served a purpose.

Amanda Plummer. The only roles she gets are ones where she has to be retarded or crazy or both.

Fairuza Balk. She seemed a little too real as the crazy girl in The Craft and there were some blinds that pointed towards her being nuts irl.

R25 I completely agree. Andy Kaufman was the cringiest weirdo. My dad and brother thought he was funny somehow. Do not understand his appeal.

by Anonymousreply 4108/01/2020

This thread is so fkin sexist. Most of the thespians listed are female. Its such an outdated stereotype. I'm reporting this site to some news organization or queerty or something. I'm sick of this shit; enough is enough. All the fkin racism and sexism in the world and DL continues to give it a platform on here.

is that you Rose McGowan at r42

[quote]Andy Kaufman pushed boundaries and was against the mainstream. He served a purpose.

Pushed boundaries against what, and for what purpose? It was as if he felt the need to see what level of boredom and uncomfortability the audience would tolerate before throwing rotten vegetables. I don't see the value in that, plus he was dull.

Great job, R42. I honestly can’t tell if you’re sincere or not.

Of all the truly vile threads on DL, the fact that R42 singles this one out as the most sexist/offensive is truly laughable.

"I don't think Adam Driver is actually crazy. He's a pretty disciplined actor. And IMHO, the poster child for ugly hot....."

Well, R24 two out of the three adjectives may be correct, but the third definitely is not.

I'm going to add Jack Nicholson to this list. I don't believe he's entirely crazy, but he isn't entirely sane, either.

Robin Williams, Andy Kaufman and Jim Carrey were all manic and more. I never enjoyed any of them because it was like watching somebody having a breakdown.

Crispin (the nutbag) Glover on Late night was the strangest thing I've ever seen on t.v. and that includes Farah.

Andy Kaufman is a close second. At least Farah you could blame on drugs.

Poor Dave.

Supposedly Crispin Glover was tripping on acid during that Letterman appearance.
