thor, almight god of thunder

i am kind of always crushing on vincent d'onofrio. i love his quirky behaviors and how he moves around the screen like a flighty bird. i do not like it when my tvguide tells me that there is an episode of law and order criminal intent coming on with him in it only to turn it on and it is in fact an entire different cast ensemble. that ruins my naptime ritual of partaking of said show. also ruining my ritual is when the previous days episodes were on (usa?) i decided not to record an episode because my tvguide had the exact same description on it for two episodes. little did i know it was a two part episode and now ive only seen the first one. i spent the better part of my morning looking around for it online. of course they havnt released criminal intent on dvd past season 3. WHY WHY? do not make me pay for it! so i sulked and read the wiki page on vincent d'onofrio because i couldnt find the episode for free online. i kind of dont believe media of any kind should cost money. remember when vdo was thor on adventures in babysitting? OH MY WORD

Ha! We were just talking about him last night! I have a feeling he regrets his Thor days...

Wouldn't it be nice to get this stuff for free? But then, with no money coming in, no one would be able to afford to make new stuff.

You're talking about the Season 5 episode In The Wee Small Hours? There are people who do downloads. Click on my name and visit my VDO-loving blog. You may meet someone there who can help you. You will certainly see lots of dreamy VDO stuff, from all 7 seasons (even though I'm in the UK where we have only recently seen Season 6, I have every single VDO episode of the show).

I once read that VDO told a magaine writer that he took the role of Thor after his brilliant breakout role as "Gomer Pyle) in Full Metal Jacket for which he had to gain over sixty pounds.

Vincent said that he had lost the weight and buffed up after playing Pyle and took the small role in order NOT to be typecast.

GREAT MOVE on Vincent's part. Instead of an obese suicidal killer we got to see a sexy, hot mechanic-- Thor ruled!

i believe he actually gained upwards of 80 lbs for full metal jacket. what an explosive (ok a little pun intended) role that was!

He's sooo dreamy. My partner thinks I'm crazy!

I would contemplate committing a major crime if you could promise me I'd be frisked by Bobby Goren. After an extensive interrogation, that is.
