Gratuitous Brunette: Guy Pearce

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketEnglish-born, Australian-raised Guy Pearce appeared on both Neighbours and Home and Away before bursting into the public eye in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, in which he was a little too convincing as angertwink Adam (aka Felicia JollyGoodFellow). Not that there's anything wrong with that.

His American career since has been hit-and-miss: L.A. Confidential - hit, The Time Machine - miss. Such is the way with Hollywood films, where hundreds of millions are spent on special effects, and screenplays are scribbled on napkins. Not that I'm bitter.

Pearce always has Australia to fall back on*; between his more high-profile appearances he returns home to make indie films and appear on stage.

*Even though I'm sure Australia would prefer he'd fall forward on them - I know I wouldn't mind!

Don't forget "Memento", a cult movie. One of the first propiciated by the rise of the internet. A Chris Nolan movie. Yes, the same that did the last, and ever best, "Batman".
