He was a major part of the largest cinematic undertaking of all time.

Which one, that does'nt thin it down much. Hollywood claims they're all the greatest cinema undertaking of all time, until the next one comes along.

Knowing the film won't help me though, I can see him fine, just not too up to date on modern films, or stars.

The greatest is debatable, but I said largest.

That was a tough one with very good clues! Here's a male performer.

No wonder I did'nt get Sean Astin, never heard of him, or "Goonies" either. Is that the "largest cinematic undertaking of all time", or is it another that I probably haven't heard of either.

Groucho Marx.

I never would have guessed Sean Astin either, Gary, although I'd heard of him (as in being the son of Patty Duke/John Astin). I'm guessing that the "largest cinematic undertaking of all time" is "Lord of the Rings" rather than "Goonies", but I had to look up Astin's movie history to know that he played Frodo's loyal companion, Sam (one of my favorite characters from the trilogy -- I named my first car after him ). I haven't made it through the DVD version of "The Rings" yet, but I can pick up any of the volumes and go to any page, and start enjoying the adventure again... I can't think of any other stories that work like that.

Hi CJ, another fan of Lord of the Rings here. First read it when I was 12 years old, took me 36 hours non-stop to read all 3 books.

Have watched the movies, but don't rate them. I don't like the way they've re-written the story. Adding scenes that don't exist, and missing out many that do, and I don't like the way they've changed the nature of some of the characters.

Like you, I often pick up the book and just dive in, still a great read, though I've read it many, many times.

Getting back to the point of this thread, I did'nt know Sean Astin, but of course am old enough to remember John Astin (who could forget Gomez Addams).

MaryLynn, not trying to hijack the thread -- just passing time until you have a chance to sleep, fix breakfast for the family, get ready for work, etc. and then have time to look at Gary's guess for your pixeled performer.

WOW! I hate to admit it, but it took me a LOT LONGER than 36 hours to read the trilogy -- I almost didn't finish Book One, because I didn't get interested until the journey began -- then I finally "caught on" to the style and started enjoying it.

As for Gomez -- don't speak any French -- he might hear you!
