Please allow Waits to introduce himself; he’s a man of wealth and taste. . .
Pitchfork is reporting that James P. Caldwell‘s man-crush Tom Waits is playing The Devil in Terry Gilliam‘s new flick, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. (It’s also Heath Ledger‘s final film appearance, sniff.)
So, fingers crossed. It would be great to see Tom the Thespian again; he was pretty much the only good thing about Francis Ford Coppola‘s stinkbomb remake of Dracula. (Waits played the bug-eating nutbag Renfield. . . say, I’m a bug-eater now, too!)
Oh, and James — your check is in the mail.
