*Alan Rickman: Why You Love Him

I feel as though I should give you some reasons why you love Alan Rickman...beyond the awesome Snapeness and Sheriffyness and Gruberness and so forth.

He has been with the same woman since he was like 19 years old. And she is/was an economics professor or something. I can dig that.

He once told Kate Winslet while they were standing in line waiting to meet the Queen that if she curtsied, he'd kill her. He's not into the whole servility thing when it comes to royalty, and as an American, I can dig that.

He likes America. Seems to like it better than England in some ways. And as an American, I can dig that.

Now, since Shank says he likes the movie quotes game, I'll probably continue it. I think Johnny Depp is the logical choice for the next actor. He was mentioned in the previous Rickman post, and this Friday is Talk Like a Pirate Day. It'll be a challenge not to do Captain Jack Sparrow quotes on the daily, but I'll try.
