If Harvey Keitel ever gets to play Philip Marlowe, I may just have to gun him down on the soundstage before his first take. Granted, I have a personal animosity toward the man, but I also admire his acting greatly. But he is so freaking wrong for Marlowe in my view that the very idea makes me a little queasy. And that's not just because of the New York accent. Not to mention he's too old now.
