   StormCnter  When we were both younger, people used to tell me I looked like Marsha Mason. Gram's right. This was a fun movie.

   MeiDei  You know Hope, he does have a certain intensity, magnetism to him on screen but he's got demons in real life & his struggles aren't ones I'd wish on anyone. Had his picture ready but found it very hard to post the result of researching - so your input gave me an outlet to use his image & search for an easier subject ; )

   HopeandGlory  OK! . . . I'll go ahead and answer this one. This is Jonathon Rhys Meyers.

   MeiDei  2010
When they meet in second grade, Juli Baker falls instantly in love with her neighbor, Bryce Loski. Bryce, however, does not feel the spark. From that day forward, he tries hard to keep brash and unpredictable Juli at bay. After six years, she begins to feel that she was wrong about him being the love of her life. Unfortunately, that is just about the time that Bryce begins to think he was wrong about Juli, too. Title, Actors?

   Gram77  Don't know the movie and only know one face and that is John Mahoney.

   MeiDei  Right! He's the level-headed Grampa. This movie will have you remembering your Jr. High/early HS years in & out of class, at home and friendships - I can't believe I actually stayed awake for this - and very glad I did.

   MeiDei  IIRC Gram you liked ER - the guy in dark suit was a doctor in it.
One of the mothers was in Risky Business and also appeared in 5 episodes of the ER. The light blonde appeared in Biloxi Blues and Carlito's Way & played Mary Kay Letourneau in a TV production of her scandalous life. The fellow (left between the gals ) starred in Legends of the Fall, Benny & Joon, Crusoe & is currently Cpt. Tommy Gregson - TV's "Elementary" to name just a few for all above.

   StormCnter  While touring in a play in the mid-1970s, he attained a reputation for being a holy terror toward hotel staff members. Among other things, all hotel suites where he would stay had to be painted a certain shade of tan and all kitchens in those hotel suites had to be stocked in advance with "one dozen brown eggs, under no circumstances white ones!" He is one of only nine actors to have won both a Tony and an Oscar for having portrayed the same roles on stage and screen. From a biography of his father, his son states: "In his youth, (he ) was Jean Cocteau's opium supplier."He was the visual inspiration for the original illustrations of the superhero Green Lantern/Abin Sur (created in 1959 ). In January 1985, while dying of lung cancer, (he ) insisted on filming a television commercial, advising everyone, "Now that I'm gone, I tell you don't smoke..."

Can you name him?

   Gram77  I. totally agree with Richdet

   StormCnter  Rich wins and Gram concurs. I've seen Brynner twice in touring productions of "The King and I". They were probably 25 years apart and he didn't age a day.

   StormCnter  A good morning win for Gram.

   Richdet  Nathan Lane was in the news last week, describing the time Harvey Weinstein pushed him to a wall and threatened him at a gala for the Hillary Clinton Senate campaign. Media all around, no mention anywhere the next day, two weeks out from her election. They call it omerta.

Anyway, Nathan's pose above might work handily as a photo illustration for a story about his unhappy encounter with Harvey W.
