Norman as Brautigan in Let The Devil Wear Black (1999)
This is an appreciation post of Norman’s gestures.
HNNNNNNG, this movie will be mine in a few days!! My body will never be ready for this!!
Norman with a gun will get me going every time. Sometimes I just like some of his bad characters because they’re BAD. Sometimes a girl wants a villain.
I just read someones review on Let the Devil Wear Black and, mainly, Norman’s role in it and apparently Jesse is a lot like Scud just minus the pot, Powerpuff Girls and donuts. I don’t doubt that I’ll love Jesse for himself but fuck if the thought of more Scud-like acting isn’t sealing the deal. I literally cannot wait. Have you seen this movie? Fuck, I apologize in advance for getting the VHS because I have no idea how to transfer something from a tape to the internet otherwise I’d share it with all the Reedusluts!
No, I haven’t seen this one. I’m more attracted to his wolf eyes in the whole thing. I like certain characters of his just because they’re predatory and damn if he doesn’t make you want to throw your panties when he’s predatory.
You should already know full and well why I’m most attracted to his ‘predatory’ characters so I don’t even need to say anything except I whole heartedly agree. He can play the sweet, nice guy well and beautifully - even through the murderous bouts of insanity Harry was at heart a very, very sweet boy and Norman played that off wonderfully and while angry and not really using his brain through the latter half of the movie Jack was soooooo sweet - but fuck no one does bad like Mr.Reedus. Seriously. He deserves to be crowned the king of villainous characters because I’ve never seen anyone do this as well as him.
Just looking at these gifs of Jesse I’m getting all kinds of sordid, insanely hot and morally corrupt fantasies that are just making me more and more excited for this movie. Uggggh, it cannot come fast enough! Also, knowing this is based on Hamlet makes me pine shamefully for someone not completely in their mind to make a movie based off of the Marquis de Sade’s stories and cast Norman in it and omfg if they put him in a frock coat!!!!!nfeonoentehnvdvenfajuw02ur
The thing that always gets me about his villains is that there’s always a quality to them that makes them sort of likable. Marco was terrifying and homicidal, but you sort of rooted for him because he was interesting. Mac was horrible and disgusting, but he was interesting. Jessie just looks like I need to jump him in the back of a car. Or have some sort of weird hostage fantasy.
When the movie comes I will describe everything in painful detail for you until I can figure out how to get it online so you can have the same Jesse fantasies that I am. *_* I cannot agree any more with your hostage fantasy suggestion though, holy shit, hooooooot. He’s an L.A. street smart ‘thug’, dare I say, who sells drugs on the side so I can already see where this is going, mmmmm. All of my sexy feels right now.
And you know, its going to sound REALLY weird but I didn’t find Mac THAT disgusting, rape aside because I already know your feelings on that, I mean all the other crap he pulled. I think what I found MOST disgusting about him was his house, that just made me go
But other then that I just saw a LOT of his actions as those of someone who simply doesn’t know any better because that’s how most everyone is in their town. Their fucked up little town. Hahaha.
Also I just want to say that Marco is, more or less, the perfect guy in my eyes (give or take his occupation of choice, I mainly mean personality/looks wise) and the best part was he had some JOKES. EVERY time I watch that movie and he says ‘There goes your dancing career.’ I DIE. I just die. And then I die again when he says ‘Do I have to read your fucking mind or are you going to tell me?’. I wish the entire movie was from his POV because I feel like there were so many hilarious moments we didn’t get to see. Oh, Marco, if you only you weren’t so vindicated you could have survived that summer!!
Yeah, hostage fantasy FTW with Jesse. I ever saw the movie and I might write it.
