The results are in and the people have spoken! On episode #117 of The LAMBcast (you might have heard it – it’s the one with those LAMMY things on it), we held our first Actor’s Career Draft (I still can’t decide if that possessive “‘s” should be there or not), in which Courtney, Joel, Alan, Nick and I cycled through Tom Cruise’s filmography, selecting films of his to be on our “teams” for our own mythical film festivals. To make it a bit more challenging, we threw out the first round of selections, which ousted the likes of Collateral, Top Gun, and A Few Good Men, amongst others. What remained were enough films to make it through his career, but it certainly gets a bit sketchy towards the end.
Once we did that, we slapped up a poll and asked you fine LAMB members to tell us who came away with the best (or at least, least worst) selection of films. And…I won! See my beautiful collage and the poll results below.
We’ll no doubt have another Actor Career Draft (see? It looks better without, doesn’t it?) on a future LAMBcast. If you’d like to join us for that, or any other LAMBcast, we love new blood. Just go to the Forums and keep an eye out there (or on FB or on Twitter) for the calls for volunteers.
