• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

You shoot him in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.

Consummate Badass actor, born May 13, 1939 in Brooklyn, New York, best known for such movies as Mean Streets, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Taxi Driver, Mother, Jugs, & Speed, The Last Temptation of Christ, The January Man, The Two Jakes, Thelma and Louise, Bugsy, Reservoir Dogs, Sister Act, Bad Lieutenant, Point Of No Return, The Piano, Rising Sun, Pulp Fiction, From Dusk till Dawn, Cop Land, Little Nicky, Red Dragon, National Treasure, Be Cool, and Inglourious Basterds (only over the phone, but trust us, you will recognize him). He also played Gene Hunt in the American version of Life On Mars; much like Philip Glenister in the British original, he was the best thing on the show. A former United States Marine, he is frequently revered as one of cinema's greatest actors for badass roles that nevertheless require emotional range, possibly equaling Robert De Niro despite his lack of awards.
