: : I didn't get to see The Crossing, but in defense of Jeff Daniels, in general, he's not really a bad actor. He was my favorite part of the movie, Gettysburg. I loved him as Chamberlain. I've seen him do a lot of things that I thought were pretty good, including an interesting Woody Allen film, the Purple Rose of Cairo, and a kinda spooky thing with Demi (ugh) Moore. But I always think of him as "Flap" from Terms of Endearment. (He didn't just start out with D&D, by any means.)
: : I can't say I can actually picture him as Washington, but if I get the opportunity, I'd like to check it out.
: : MMMM
: Marcia, once again I whole heartedly agree with your comments. I LOVED Jeff Daniels as Chamberlain in Gettysburg! AND I too always think of him as Flap in Terms of Endearment. That movie and Steel Magnolias are my favorites to pull out on a dreary Sunday afternoon when I need to get a good cry out.
: I didn't get to see "The Crossing", but had my Mom tape it and am looking forward to seeing it this weekend!!
That`s funny because the whole time I was watching The Crossing, I was thinking of Chamberlain, and very much so when he raised his sword and sounded that the army will "ADVANCE!!!". I was so empressed with his roll as Chamberlain that I almost found myself cheering for the Yankies.
