The joker’s joker. An expert in on-set improvisation. It’s not often mentioned that Who Framed Roger Rabbit? was originally an all-live- action film, and Zemeckis only added the animation at the eleventh hour to detract from Bob Hoskins’ bizarre accent. On the merits of Forrest Gump, the jury is always ‘still out’. ‘Cheesy flag-waver for American interventionism or scathing satire of the mentally handicapped?’ ‘Either way, you can’t ignore it!’ Actually rather good at doing slapstick.
