I finished watching The Big C yesterday and freakin’ cried. Omg, what a great series – even though it got cut short! Guys, if you have Optimum (or Showtime Anytime) you can watch all the seasons! I highly recommend.
But anyway, today I was making Maui Wowee bars (they came out DELISH, by the way. So easy too!) and thinking about the show when I realized the first time I saw Oliver Platt in anything was CinderElmo. It was my brother’s favorite movie when he was a tot, so naturally I’ve watched it many times. We’re only 8 years apart. It just cracked me up contrasting his character then to Paul Jamison whom we see dropping f-bombs, having affairs, snorting coke, and getting piss drunk. I love it. Platt was also in Bicentennial Man, which is one of my favorite movies of all time.
I thought he and Laura Linney made a great TV couple for The Big C. I wonder if it would have ended the same had it not been cancelled…Okay, no spoilers. Watch it!
