Re: The RIP Celebrities Thread

There are so many great roles Rip Torn had from Artie on Larry Sander to Zed in MIB and everything between. Never gave a half-assed performance. The quality of what he was in didn't matter. He showed up. Whether it was as Albert Brook's advocate, John Candy's pirate mentor, or a crippled dodgeball coach.

The one I'm going to post is from a movie that is not very good, Trial & Error (1997), but there is a scene in it where Rip elevates the whole thing. He's playing a guy on trial that is obviously guilty. He gets on the stand and does this.

Gonna throw in this scene from Walter Hill's Extreme Prejudice. Pretty big spoiler in it if your planning to watch it for the forst time.

"Your honor. I can tell you are a reasonable horse.
I am very pregnant because of what happened with Lupe.
She ate my bus accident and all I wanted was to make Lupe into a book.
I have too many anuses ahead of me to spend my life in a cigar factory."
