Dear god, man. It looks like Al Pacino has some official competition the category of Dudes Who Think Barking Their Lines In Movies Is Acting.

Directed by and starring Tommy Lee Jones along with Samuel L. Jackson, "The Sunset Limited" is an adaptation of a Cormac McCarthy play that focuses on two characters, Black (Jackson) and White (Jones) who meet after the former saves the latter from throwing himself in front of the titular train. And then things get very, very talky. And loud. The entire play takes place in an apartment and it doesn't look like Jones opened that up too much. We're definitely....curious. Guess we'll see what it's all about when it debuts on HBO next month. Trailer below. [Videogum]

    Oh, so what Al Pacino, one of the greatest actors in the history of the planet does isn't "acting"?

    Maybe that was supposed to be an attempt at humor, I dunno.

    "Dear god, man. It looks like Al Pacino has some official competition the category of Dudes Who Think Barking Their Lines In Movies Is Acting."

    the smug, pretentious playlist train just keeps on rolling.

    I think it looks very good. I'd love for HBO to do a series of these. There are so many great plays people haven't seen.

    Damn! I thought this was going to be an adaptation of the James Lee Burke novel! TLJ played the character of Dave Robicheaux in Bernard Tavernier's "In the Electric Mist..." (not good) and I was hoping he'd have the chance to redeem himself. Oh well.
