A brilliant career reduced to one stupid movie...


Watching Law and Order with my niece, Alicia, who is 18 years younger than me:

"See the black guy? That's Jesse Martin. He was in Rent on Broadway and in the movie too." I said
"Yea?"
"Yea. He was on The Ellen Show and Ellen told him she had no idea that he was a Broadway actor. He said that's a common mistake that people used to make about Jerry Orbach. Did you know that Jerry Orbach was a big Broadway actor when he was younger? As a matter of fact, he originated the role of "Billy Flynn" in Chicago. That's the part Richard Gere played in the movie."
"Wow."
"You know who Jerry Orbach is, don't you?" I asked.
"Sure," she replied, "He put baby in a corner."

Thanks for the post. I didn't know you ever read The Boo-Log.

I think that most women will know the movie... it's a cult classic. Well, actually, not so much a "cult" classic.... it was fairly successful when it was released.

At first I was too ashamed to say so, but Alicia's dad gave me the courage. I don't know what movie you're talking about. Please reveal the title. I want to know. Really.
