->When Wrestling/RicFlair talks, it matters. You ''believe'' it matters. That's why the guy is so fucking awesome: it's because he brings a passion that nobody--''nobody''--has in the fuckin' {{Wrestling/WWE}}. You need look no further than Wrestling/RandyOrton, who is a walking sleeping pill. That guy, he's going for "intense", but he's just so static. He's boring. [[AC:he talks in a monotone.]]\\\
"[[AC:[[KubrickStare josh matthews. at wrestlemania. i will be. the wee champion]].]]"\\\
YAWN. Fucking ''YAWN!'' Ric Flair would get in front of that camera, he's like,\\\
"'''''I'M GONNA''''' '''WIN''' '''''AT WRESTLEMANIA! I WILL''''' '''BE''' '''''THE WORLD CHAMPION WOOOOO!!'''''"\\\
That's what that guy brings. You know, watching Ric Flair, that Ric Flair will ''die for your sins'' in that ring.

->Imagine if you will, that Gary Busey was still getting the big roles; all [[SlasherSmile Stonehenge-teeth]] and [[NoIndoorVoice bellowed acronyms]] that [[IceCreamKoan make no sense]]; and in movies that got trailed on TV and opened big at the box office. That’s what’s happening here.

->This is a note to future writes of Creator/SylvesterMcCoy stories…do not give him the chance to overact under any circumstances. ‘Oh to feel the hard radiation! The solar winds brushing across me!’ he croons like some science fiction porn star.

->In a continuing observation, the young Dustin Diamond is a truly horrendous performer, with terrible timing, unclear diction, and speaking every line like someone who’s phonetically repeating words that have no meaning to him, like [[HughMann a stranded alien]].

->"Why, when I was your age I would spend what little idle time I had with an instructive book not that racing form I see that you're now trying to hide. Of course I was not given to late-night dissipation in the fleshpots of the District of Columbia! Oh, you can't hide your ruinous habits from me! I can see by the trembling of your hands what demon rum is doing to you…" The poor clerk was indeed trembling-with terror-as [[NoIndoorVoice the great voice thundered in his ears]] and Huey, particularly if an audience had now filled the lobby, would become prayerful as he invoked the lad's aged mother back in Butte, Montana. "I know how each night she prays for your success-on her knees, little suspecting that all those hours that should be golden with study are scarlet with vice…" [[CrocodileTears Tears would fill Huey's eyes on cue]] as he contemplated that little old lady who had mothered a son so reprobate.

->So, how about that [[Creator/NicolasCage Nic Cage]], huh? At a certain point, soon after the ''[[Film/TheWickerMan Wicker Man]]'' edits hit Youtube, Nic Cage transcended his position as ‘pretty weird guy’ to become the icon of cinematic insanity. Imagine if you will, that Gary Busey was still getting the big roles; all [[SlasherSmile Stonehenge-teeth]] and [[NoIndoorVoice bellowed acronyms]] that [[IceCreamKoan make no sense]]; and in movies that got trailed on TV and opened big at the box office. That’s what’s happening here. Is Cage acknowledging and embracing his own madness? Like the [[Wrestling/TheIronSheik Iron Shiek]] becoming a cartoon of himself as a springboard to [[AdamWesting an irony-laced reinvention]]? Or, like when the studios had some old time movie star with a penchant for murdering call girls, and finally got tired of sweeping the bodies under the rug, is Hollywood accepting that his natural [[BuffySpeak Cageness]] cannot and should not be covered up any longer? Cage became a thing unto himself, where directors be all “just go be Nic Cage and we’ll roll” like some modern day Creator/KlausKinski, riding his craziness like a bucking bull, and pointing cameras at him to preserve it for the ages.
-->--'''[[http://franticplanet.wordpress.com/2011/12/16/my-top-20-movies-of-2011-the-list-part-1/ Stuart Millard]]''' on ''Film/DriveAngry''

->Nicolas Cage is hands down one of my favorite actors working today, and it's not for any respectable reason. It's chiefly due to his bear-who-drop-kicks-ladies opus, ''Film/TheWickerMan'', but also such feel-good hits as ''Film/{{Season of the Witch}}'', ''Film/GhostRider'', ''Film/BangkokDangerous'', and ''Film/FaceOff''. I feel like any acting accolades Cage has ever received were the result of his incessantly being on film to the point that one day they ran out of films to give awards to and all that was left on the table that year was ''Film/LeavingLasVegas'' so they had to give Cage some acting awards for it or just have surplus that they wouldn't get a refund on from the trophy shop. Nicolas Cage approaches every role the same way -- how ''wouldn't'' a real person tackle this situation? This is often executed on camera by a series of facial spasms to shame even Creator/JimCarrey or a TexAvery cartoon, as Cage contorts and tics his way through a serious of either unrestrained emotion or unpleasant bowel turmoil.

->My whole family delighted in Huey Long not for his politics but for his comic speechifying...The Kingfish, as Long was known, began performing when he stepped out of the elevator in the morning and confronted the day in the form of a desk clerk, a meek young man, whom Huey enjoyed lecturing on Success, to the young man's embarrassment. Huey would declaim: "Why, when I was your age I would spend what little idle time I had with an instructive book not that racing form I see that you're now trying to hide. Of course I was not given to late-night dissipation in the fleshpots of the District of Columbia! Oh, you can't hide your ruinous habits from me!
