Happy Birthday to my other Mister

Do not worry. The Mister knows about him. ;0) My other Mister is the talented James Dean. The man behind the red jacket, fast cars and legendary pompadour. I cannot really pinpoint the exact moment I discovered him. I honestly, I think I knew everything about him before actually watching any of his films all the way through, which is only 3 by the way. (well, starting roles…)
My admiration grew for him after discovering he was a pioneer for method acting. You know that question every actor/actress is asking regarding how they got “in character,” and they say something like, “Oh well, I went to their hometown, read what they read…” blah blah blah. Well that researching they are doing is called method acting.
Whatever it is about James Dean, I love but cannot really express why. Maybe it was the films and the passion he gave his characters, maybe it was his rebellious style, or his coy sense of humor; I am completely enthralled by him.
And yes, sometimes I question it too. ;0)
Here’s to Jimmy Dean….
