Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball.

I just finished watching Far From Heaven, which I just loved. The acting was great, the cinematography was beautiful (I could have stared at the colors for hours), and the story was interesting and sad at the same time.

I was looking through the extra features and started reading the cast biographies when I had a sudden "Oh my god!" moment. Dennis Haysbert, President David Palmer from 24 (one of my favorite shows), he of the regal bearing and beautiful voice, was Pedro Cerrano in Major League. How could I have not known that?

Yes. It is him. I was a little shocked when I found out.

That's one of my very favorite movies. I absolutely love the way the movie was filmed re: the color.

Far From Heaven is a great movie indeed, and one of my beefs with the DVD is that it features Dennis Quaid as the co-star, not Dennis Haysbert. Quaid is great, but he is not the co-star.

If you like Haysbert, be sure to see Love Field , one of Michelle Pfeiffer's top films - perhaps the best one that she's ever made. Haysbert is tremendous too - once again paired with a pale, "defenceless" Caucasian woman.

And be sure to look at the Douglas Sirk movies of the Fifties that inspired FFH, especially All That Heaven Allows. It's in the Criterion Collection. You'll find that Todd Haymes did not invent his gorgeous palette.
