    Peter O'Toole RIP

    I will not be a common man. I will stir the smooth sands of monotony. I do not crave security. I wish to hazard my soul to opportunity.

    It's not enough simply to be the king. You must look and act like one.

    Loved him in "My Favorite Year."
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    My favorite interview of all time. I still watch it a couple times a year and it never fails to delight.

    One of my absolute favorites. His two turns as Henry II (Becket, The Lion in Winter) were fantastic.

    His performance in King Ralph was sublime.

    I loved him in a lot of films...but none more than Lawrence of Arabia. Definitely in my top 5 of all time movies.

    And VP, thanks for posting the link to that Letterman interview. Simply priceless.
