Trivia and Quotes

  • average actor...

    Beau Bridges is a pretty average actor, at best. I've only seen him as General Landry on Stargate SG-1 and he doesn't do a very good job on the show. First thing, he has an annoying voice. Second, he just does not have the presense the other actors do. Third, he's just not good. Many actors could play the general just as well, or better, than Beau does. I was surprised to see that he was nominated for an emmy as a supporting actor in another show. Maybe he's just bad in Stargate and good in other shows. I don't know.moreless
  • He just isn't that good.

    I think the only reason he's had any kind of a career is because of his family. His brother is way talented and he's probably just ridden his coat-tails. The I don't think he is believable in anything he does. Especailly in touching moments when he is suppose to care about someone ... I don't get any sense of real feeling at all. His comedy is also a little too muggy for me if you know what I mean. I don't want to see him just make faces - that's not funny. I just hope someone in Hollywood stops giving him parts because of his family name.moreless
