I've also just finished filming the role of Robert Brown in 'Just William ' which is due to transmit on BBC One at Christmas.
As great as Ed is the wisdom out here is that he can't carry a movie. They'll pay him $3 million to be the second banana in Julia Roberts things. But they won't put up $3 million for an Ed Harris movie.
Brainy folks were also present in Lyndon Johnson's administration especially in the Pentagon where Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's brilliant 'whiz kids' tried to micro-manage the Vietnam war with disastrous results.
The truth is I don't have any problem with journalists - I count some of them as friends - also some of my heroes are journalists I'm a big fan of Robert Fisk - great people or crazy people who are prepared to stand up for what's right.
Don't forget it's daylight savings time. You spring forward then you fall back. It's like Robert Downey Jr. getting out of bed.
Magic and new technology have always walked hand in hand - even back in the days of Robert Houdin.
I went to a college in New York called New Paltz. I studied theater there for four years. I also studied privately in NYC with a teacher named Robert X. Modica.
The big stars I felt a kinship with were never the romantic leads. It wasn't Steve McQueen or Robert Redford - it was people like Walter Matthau and Anthony Quinn. My big hero was Tommy Cooper.
A handful of older romantic leading men like Sean Connery Jack Nicholson and Robert Redford are still landing parts.
I want to do the romantic comedies. You know the stuff that Meg Ryan and Julia Roberts or Reese Witherspoon would choose of course.
Judge Roberts has assured me personally that he has a healthy respect for precedent and the hard-won rights of Americans.
Robert Kennedy was such an inspiring figure. His interest in politics seemed to come not from a desire for power but from a need to help our society live up to its ideals.
I have a lot of nice Italian winter clothes that make me look like a sophisticated Lebanese professor so my friend Robert and I go around pretending to be experts in Arabic politics. It doesn't work in the summer though. I don't have the right clothes.
We read Robert Browning's poetry. Here we needed no guidance from the professor: the poems themselves were enough.
One will never again look at a birch tree after the Robert Frost poem in exactly the same way.
I dabbled in things like Howlin' Wolf Cream and Led Zeppelin but when I heard Son House and Robert Johnson it blew my mind. It was something I'd been missing my whole life. That music made me discard everything else and just get down to the soul and honesty of the blues.
I'll always remember when I bumped into Good Morning America's Robin Roberts on a flight to my mother's funeral in 1994 and how kind she was during that difficult time.
It's rather splendid to think of all those great men and women who appear to have presented symptoms that allow us to describe them as bipolar. Whether it's Hemingway Van Gogh... Robert Schumann has been mentioned... Virginia Woolf Sylvia Plath... some of them with rather grim ends.
It is hard to see Judge Roberts as a judicial activist who would place ideological purity or a particular agenda above or ahead the need for thoughtful legal reasoning.
As a young man I went to Paris and soaked up many hours of film knowledge from Robert Hakim in my efforts to become a producer.
Pat Roberts and I both feel very strongly that when we get to Iran that we can't make the same mistakes. We have to ask the questions the hard questions before not afterwards and get the right intelligence.
Robert Walker as Bruno was excellent. He had elegance and humor and the proper fondness for his mother.
Jake Roberts has a hard enough time being Jake Roberts. The truth is a brutal thing I just hope that the kids take the time to learn about each of the wrestlers in the game and if the kids can learn from our mistakes that would make me a happy man.
Got good news and bad news for you Mr. President. The good news is that Chief Justice John Roberts just saved your legacy and perhaps your presidency by writing for the Supreme Court majority to rule health care reform constitutional.
