I can't say enough good things about Jack Lemmon. He was what every good actor should be: versatile. Whether he did comedy or drama, as the lead or part of a team, in his youth or as an old man, you always believed him in whatever he did. In his best roles, he had an everyman charm that made him relatable, but he could be a right bastard at times, too. His influence can be seen in a number of today's best actors.
It's not his birthday. It's not the anniversary of his death or his first Hollywood role or anything like that. I just wanna do a blogathon for him. It's that simple. I'm teaming up with my pal from south of the equator, Le, on this one, and we hope you'll join us too.
March 30-31 is the time. Anything related to the life and career of Jack Lemmon goes. Duplicates are AOK. I'm gonna write about The Out-of-Towners, while Le will discuss the remake of 12 Angry Men. If you're game, let us know in the comments and we'll see you then!
