It’s been over 50 years and yet Norman Bates remains to be, in my opinion, the most perfectly casted character for a horror movie of all time. It’s been said that Anthony Perkins’ career suffered horribly after Psycho because nobody could ever see him as any other character again. If that’s not phenomenal acting, I don’t know what is.
i am so in love with him and its killing me
i can finally cross “get punched in the crotch by johnny knocksville” off my list of things to do before i die.
I’ve been very careful to maintain all of them ever since… like sticking to certain mannerisms in certain situations, keeping certain facial expressions, and, yeah, clapping in a particular way. It’s just kinda one of those silly actor things that despite itself, whether successful or not, has helped me stay in character.
This one time I was watching an episode at home, I caught a quick shot of Blaine NOT clapping “a la Blaine” … and I was so mad at myself! I didn’t understand how that could’ve possibly happened.
