Breaking News « Stuff Important to Me »

Well, not really...

I just found out that John Ratzenberger, the only man to have a voice part in every Pixar Studios full-length motion picture, who also got to have a minor speaking part in perhaps the greatest movie of all time, The Empire Strikes Back, on top of everything else, also had a minor speaking role in A Bridge Too Far.

I was watching the credits to see if the Captain who nearly dies was the guy from Eddie and the Cruisers, (he wasn't), and there pops up the name John Ratzenberger. Sheesh!

So I went back to the IMDB to see what other cool stuff he's been in... ...and that was about it. He was a "Controller" in both Superman I and II. He was in Outland and Firefox and Gandhi, which are all cool, I guess.

I'm just wondering if maybe we should have done "6 degerees of John Ratzenberger" instead of Kevin Bacon. Which, if you didn't know, there is at least one direct link between you know which movie?


Wow, the Oracle of Bacon has Ratzenberger with a degree of 2.

I had to cheat on IMDb to get the real result.

(aside: Wedge doesn't need a stinkin' Kevin Bacon Number...)

Yeah, he's not actually credited for his cameo appearance, I guess. It was one of my favorite movies, by the way...
