I must be in a chatty mood today. I am home by myself and I seem to be blogging everything that comes into my mind. First, it was about the news media. Now it's about Sam Waterston. When I got disgusted with the news, I started watching a "Law and Order" re-run. Sam Waterston is in it, along with Carey Lowell, Richard Gere's attractive and natural-looking wife (she doesn't appear botoxed or nipped/tucked, unlike a lot of actresses).
I love Sam Waterston! I have loved him every since I saw the movie "The Great Gatsby" back in 1974. At the time, a big deal was made about the movie before it came out and it turned out to be a flop. I wasn't crazy about the movie either, and thought it was awfully depressing. But I loved the actor who played Nick. I loved the character of Nick. He was the only likable character in the movie. He was charming and sincerely nice. And Sam Waterson played the gentlemanly Nick very well. I have liked him ever since.
Until Law and Order, most people seem to have never heard of him. When anyone asked who my favorite living actor was I would name him and they would have a blank look. I was gratified when my late mother-in-law (whom I liked very much) said he was her favorite actor too.
I think I will get up and get out of the house now. I've blogged enough for one day!
