Let’s start with some musically inclined actors…

Tim Robbins…Bruce Willis
Billy Bob Thornton…Jeff Bridges
Juliette Lewis…Gina Gershon
Christopher Guest…Harry Shearer

Next, how about a few fictional movie bands?

    Six packs – Tim Robbins, Jeff Bridges, Gina Gershon, Christopher Guest.
    Shot Guns – Willis, Thornton, Lewis, Shearer
    That wasn’t easy.

  2. cliff sovinsanity

    Six Packs – Stillwater, Blues Brothers, The Oneders, The Commitments
    Shot Guns – Dragon, Hammer, Originals, Bluesbrothers
    That was too easy

    My challenge would be
    Jared Leto (30 Seconds To Mars) VS Russell Crowe (30 Odd Foot of Grunts)

    This exposed some huge marital divides, starting with Tim vs. Bruce. I think TRobbins is the cat’s meow (note tacky pony tail boyfriend in “High Fidelity”) but Mr. Royale says, “I have one scene for you: Bruce Willis coming down the stairs with a samurai sword in “Pulp Fiction.” Uh oh. Thank goodness we both agreed on Beer for Bridges and for Gershon, and our mutual ab-whore-ance of Juliette Lewis and BBThornton. There was discussion about Shearer vs. Guest, but since neither was Squiggy, I was happy to split the 6 pack with 3 beers apiece (cheating, I know).

    As for the films: Sixpacks for Stillwater (Billy Crudup! Jason Lee! Mark Kozolek!), Blues Brothers, Oneders (Steve Zahn!) and The Commitments. Easy as pie (mince meat, at this time of year).

    Challenge: Mince meat vs. Pecan
    Challenge part deux: Truffaut vs. Godard
    Challenge 3: Crocs or Uggs
    Challenge 4 (for HStan): Terry Jacks or Edward Bear

  5. Challenge: Mince meat vs. Pecan
    Challenge part deux: Truffaut vs. Godard
    Challenge 3: Crocs or Uggs
    Challenge 4 (for HStan): Terry Jacks or Edward Bear

    Pecan, Truffaut, Uggs, Terry Jacks.

    Shoot, I never thought I’d have an occasion to choose Uggs!

  6. Cliff summed up my answers quite nicely, although I’ve never heard music by either Gina Gershon or Julliete Lewis. But if we’re judging on non musical achievements, I will say that the more interesting question is Juliette Lewis’ cameo in Shit Girls Say ( vs Gina Gershon’s performance in Bound.

    No one is supposed to care about Sherlock Holmes, he’s an insufferable prick who happens to be a consulting detective genius. Downey is actually pretty good casting if you think about it a bit. The fact that he has a love interest in these movies tells you all you need to know about how closely they hew to the books. I haven’t seen the sequel yet, but the first one was entertaining, despite the way they make a few fight scenes something out of CSI.

    Beer: Willis, Bridges, Gershon, Shearer, Stillwater, Blues Bros, Oneders

    Buckshot: Robbins, Thornton, Lewis, Guest, Steel Dragon, Blues Hammer, New Originals

    I guess Commitments since I can’t place the other.

    How about some brothers?
    River vs. Joaquin Phoenix?
    Ray vs. Dave Davies?
    Groucho vs. Harpo Marx?
    Edgar vs. Old Man Winter?

    I want to hear Happiness Stan’s take on Sherlock.

    Six packs around for River, Dave, Groucho & Edgar. I will always love Dave Davies for his pride in the guitar solo for “You Really Got Me,” even if he didn’t play the iconic riff.
