"If you hire Robert Duvall Not to Flinch, He Damn Well Won't Flinch"

I'm a fan. He tends to avoid crap

There's a great comfort in being a Robert Duvall fan in the 21st century. You know you'll never have to watch him joke about his prostate with Morgan Freeman in a movie about old guys vacationing in Las Vegas. He's never going to be a retired black-ops agent with something to prove, or a terminally ill guy with something to prove.

He looked pretty silly - in a good way - in "Kicking and Screaming" which is the first movie that came to mind.


Phil Weston: Hey, I almost had you!
Buck Weston: What do you call that again, when you almost win? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah... Losing!

Buck Weston: Oh, this oughtta be good. If we live long enough, we'll see Iron Mike and Aluminum Phil coaching the Tigers.
Mike Ditka: I couldn't really hear ya, Weston. My Superbowl ring was making too much noise.

Mark Avery: Hey Buck, remember when we beat you at the championship game?
Buck Weston: Oh yeah, well remember the time when I shoved that kid into the pool?
[kicks Mark into the swimming pool]

Buck Weston: We've got balls!
Phil Weston: And vitamins!
Buck Weston: But mostly balls!
Phil Weston: [with all the kids from the Tigers and Gladiators teams]
Phil Weston: AND VITAMINS!

Michael Greenspan

He was great in 2012's Jack Reacher. He made his lines seem so natural, when he spoke I forgot he was acting.
