Words, all words

Here's a great quote I just came across:

One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can't utter. - James Earl Jones, actor (1931- )

It's strange to see quotes of this nature from actors like James Earl Jones. My earliest memory of him is his role in Coming to America, where he played Eddie Murphy's father, the King of Burundi (or some such). As I recall, he was begging his son not to go off the straight and narrow to America, and offering to shower him (if shower is the word I'm looking for) with slinky women in the absolute. Just goes to show that you can never judge an actor by the roles he plays (yes, yes, schwarznaeggar is the exception).

More as the good times roll.

Ummm... I actually love even those roles. The ratty green poncho he wore in the spaghetti westerns will always remain etched in my mind!
