Day 29 - A piece of trivia from a favorite film

Another one of my favorite films that I haven't had a chance to talk about yet:

The movie where I fell in love with William Peterson as a badass mofo fifteen years before CSI. Amazing visuals, a haunting score by (don't laugh) Wang Chung. Willem Defoe and John Turturro very early in their careers. Lots of balls....and the best fucking car chase ever.

To Live To Die In LA

And here's my favorite piece of trivia about it:

Gary Sinise had originally auditioned for the part of Chance. When he was denied the role, he recommended William Petersen to William Friedkin.

Go figure.

Seriously though. This is an awesome movie. Put it on your Netflix queue. NOW!

Almost done!
