no way! pete postlethwaite has 94 screen credits and in '94 he played one of my fave characters ever. that is too cool, right?
the man is known for many big screen movies but he brought such life to the character 'Tigg Montague' in the small screen adaptation of the charles dickens novel 'martin chuzzlewit' that he will live forever in my mind. his performance alone has had me re-watching the very satisfying production over and over.
the great actor passed away this month and i have seen many lovely mentions but no one includes 'tigg.' the man had genius.
