[/size][left]There are two links between these seemingly unrelated films. They were both released this past year and both star the tallest guy in the picture (who is just an inch above [i]Rocket Science[/i] director Jeffrey Blitz). His name is Nicholas D'Agosto. He is an actor, and this past week I've seen just about everything he has ever been in. Was it up to me? No, not really. But I didn't mind all that much. It was Megan's idea, but I went along with it.
I don't want to get into [i]Rocket Science[/i] too much because I'd like you to see it, but its comparisons to [i]Little Miss Sunshine, Rushmore, Donnie Darko, [/i]and [i]Thumbsucker[/i] are all justified. I'd just ignore the one about [i]Napoleon Dynamite[/i]. Actually, I'd ignore that movie all together.
Anyway, back to D'Agosto. Tracked down most of his filmography (including TV appearences, even uncredited ones in "The Office.") He is a pretty good actor - great in [i]Rocket Science[/i] - and looks pretty good in the upcoming low-budget indie flick [i]Inside[/i], which I hope will get some sort of release but may just end up gracing the fourth row shelves at your local Blockbuster. Also, he'll be starring in season two of "Heroes" starting later in the month.
Guess I'll be watching that...
