For me, that’s what makes Spielberg films so special. The guy has got an eye for finding the best actor for the best role. That’s a gift. He truely did follow his right career path. My favourite casting is Dr Grant from Jurassic Park. Sam Neil is a great Australian actor who in my opinion fly’s under the radar somewhat. I never grow tired of watching him on the big screen.
You mentioned at the end of your blog that Spielberg is in his 70’s…now that alarms me. I personally intend to be retired by the time I’m 70. I hope he doesn’t have plans to do that. I hope he’s one of those guys who works right till he can’t any more. What a magnificent career he’s had.
