  • Bruce Dern

    I just read a great story called Racing With Bruce Dern: A Memoir from Bright Lights Film Journal. He's up for Best Actor in Nebraska.

    Here's a good quote from the essay. Some of us might relate...
    I took him at face value, however, and judged him to be authentic: a rebel whose outsider credentials were in good order. Track was therefore the perfect sport for him, especially distance running, which has a rich vein of natural angst that makes it ideal for brooding nonconformists and troubled spirits. Those of us who ran the most punishing distances saw ourselves as beyond the pale, a periphery from which we looked back wistfully but condescendingly on normal lives. Born to suffer, we suffered from the pain of training, and from neglect: no one save the odd guilty parent or dragooned classmate ever came to watch us.

    Nice column on Dern written by a track savvy Santa Barbara journalist during the recent film festival here.

      Hard to believe Dern was born with a pure silver spoon in his mouth and had Eleanor Roosevelt as a God-mother. Maybe his character was molded by fighting that. I don't think he'll win the Oscar though. McConaughey has a lock on that.
