Zeke Brown: I take home two-ten a week man, goddamn. I gotta pay for the lights, gas, clothes, food… every fuckin’ thing, man. I’m left with about thirty bucks after all the fuckin’ bills are paid. Gimme a break, will ya mister?
Mr. Bird, I.R.S. Man: Mister Brown, there’s nothing I can do. I work for Uncle Sam . . .
Zeke Brown: Fuck Uncle Sam, man! They give the fuckin’ politicians a break! Agnew and ’em don’t pay shit! Working man’s gotta pay every goddamn thing!
Mr. Bird, I.R.S. Man: You shouldn’t say that about Uncle Sam . . .
Zeke Brown: Don’t point at me, you muthafucka! Get out my house! I’ll pay the goddamn money!
Mr. Bird, I.R.S. Man: [heads for the door] You bet you will, you’ll pay it.
Zeke Brown: Yeah I know I’ll pay it! If I had the Navy and Marines behind me, I’d be a muthafucka too!
You know what that dialogue is from? BLUE COLLAR. A Paul Schrader directed classic. That dude can write better dialogue in his sleep than most people can write amped up on vodka Red Bulls. Yeah, the post RAGING BULL career has been spotty but for every CITY HALL there’s been an AFFLICTION. Sounds like Clive Owen is on the Schrader bandwagon as well.
Variety reports the actor is attached to star in a Paul Schrader scripted action film called RECALL. One piece of odd news is that it’s going to be directed by Harold Becker, who hasn’t done a damn thing since DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE. Kind of an odd choice, especially for a project with a Schreder script but, we’ll see how it turns out.
We’ll let you know when we learn more.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
