Trivia and Quotes

  • Underrated, until now...

    I have been religiously watching Enrico Colantoni on his new hit show "Flashpoint", for which he just won a well deserved Gemini Award as the Best Actor in a Drama series. His portrayal of the cool-under-fire leader of the SRU pack, Sgt. Gregory Parker, is spot-on and truly is the anchor of the hit series.

    I did watch a bit of Veronica Mars in reruns, and while not the key role on that series he once again, was the anchor, for Veronica anyway. Quite a large role too, for one usually considered a supporting role.

    But the biggest surprise for me was watching Galaxy Quest and recognizing the gentle but determined (dare I say, "anchor"??) alien as being Enrico himself! Really fine actor.moreless
  • A versatile actor.

    Enrico Colantoni is a very versatile actor; he was in Just Shoot Me and played one type of character there; and now he's in Veronica Mars, playing a different type of character. He plays both well, and while that's the role of an actor, he plays them so well that I initially didn't realize that it was the same actor in both shows.

    The real eye-opener came when I was watching one of my favourite movies, Galaxy Quest, and was reading the credits at the end, and realized that he's in that too, and plays the lead alien! That was a shock and made me realize what a great actor he really is.

    He should be a bigger star than he is, but that seems to be the way with Hollywood...moreless
