An underdog gets his due


Recommended Posts

We remember him as the 'squirt' in "The Day of the Locust", "The Bad News Bears", "Breaking Away" as Moochie, "Losin' It", etc.

 

He gave up acting in the 1990s to run a film/video production company in San Antonio, Texas.

Now back with a passion, actor Jackie Earle Haley is nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award as a child molester in the movie "Little Children".

He has already won some awards including the New York Film Critics Award. Perhaps an Oscar nomination is looming.

 

Married twice and has two children.

 

Go Jackie, Go!

It's great to know that occasionally, there are second acts in American lives, despite the opinion of F.Scott Fitzgerald, Hollywood producers and an often easily distracted, sensation-seeking audience. Every review of Little Children has singled the scrappy Mr. Haley out for praise. Just might have to check this movie out at the theatre. I saw an interview with him recently in which he laughed about delivering pizzas just a few years ago to the industry insiders who used to employ him as a kid. I wish him well.

"I always' wonder who this guy was.Hopefuuly he will get an oscar nod. Is 'Little Children; out yet?

 

I'm afraid it's released and already gone from many theatres. It opened in October in San Francisco. I regret that I missed it, and hope that all the Oscar buzz will revive it at one of the local second-run theatres...
