I've been seeing ads for this new movie about Lincoln called... Lincoln. (Good job on that title, guys.) It's directed by Spielberg so I knew immediately it was going to have music by John Williams and I know it's going to be a good movie, but a paint-by-numbers movie that knows all the standard ways to tug at your heartstrings and manipulates you into all these feelings. But that's not the point I'm trying to get at. The point is that the previews have Tommy Lee Jones in them. He's clearly supposed to be some historical figure, but when you look at him, and more importantly hear him speak, you know it's Tommy Lee Jones (or as I like to say, That Guy from Men In Black) because he's one of those actors who can't seem be anyone other than who he is and that makes my skin crawl. In frustration. But it's still crawly feeling.
