    So I'm listening to a podcast (today's Cracked podcast) and the discussion is about behind the scenes wackiness in major films. So far the first half hour has been nothing but about what an awful hack Marlon Brando was...refusing to smile when needed; refusing to learn lines; insisting upon having a midget nearby; not wearing pants so he wouldn' be filmed below the waist, etc. In Apocalypse now, he's reading his lines from a sheet taped to R Duvall's chest; in Superman, the lines are taped onto the baby. Now, I'd heard he was a kook; I had no idea that he was THAT much of a hack.
    Penn Jillette was told that the key to being an actir was to learn the lines. That's it. But REALLY learn them, so that you could pick up any scene at any cue at random. Brando wouldn't even learn one line.
    Just thought I'd pass this along after that actor war thing; I never got where Brando qualified to be on that list.

    Adam Sandler in nearly every movie... plays himself. Sometimes begrudgingly.
