Or an android from the future.
So I’m late jumping on the “Mourning Pete Postlethwaite” train, but, guys, I had to work! Admittedly, not very hard, but solitaire wasn’t going to play itself, was it? WAS IT?
Anyway, I’ll always remember Mssr. Postlethwaite for his role in Usual Suspects, and also his many roles in movies that I never saw, but saw him in the trailers and went, “Oooooh, Pete Postlethwaite! I love that guy!” Also for his role in Romeo + Juliet, which I have lately felt nostalgia for.
Since he hadn’t aged in, like, 40 years, I just assumed he was some sort of perfected robotic acting machine or possibly a time traveler. It never occurred to me that he was a real person who had cancer.
So, Pete Postlethwaite, I will never be able to pronounce your name correctly, but that doesn’t matter, because you were one of the greats. You will be missed.
