He knew his lines, delivered them without sounding like he was just reciting words and was able to easily adjust whenever the director suggested changes in pace on alternative takes. Rose attributed his ease in front of the camera to doing many commercials. "I do what the director tells me to do," he said. See more »

The truth
7 June 2003 | by mojonoSee all my reviews

I love this movie because I had a small non-speaking roll. I was the father listening to a game on the radio with my wife and son. I was brilliant, but IMD will not add me as an uncredited roll. But it's me, watch the movie and you will see. I have a pipe and everything. Martin J. Newcott (father listening to the radio)
