Mickey Rooney was a staple in our house when I was a kid. I saw a lot of his black and white films when I was young. Honestly I'm not sure how many of his color films I've seen.
John Pinette was one of my favorite stand up comics. I knew who he was long before The Punisher, and if you haven't watched any of his comedy I highly suggest you go do that right now. He was pretty damn brilliant.
