No such thing exists.
Says you. I've heard tell from a friend of a friend of a friend's cousin's brother that says otherwise.
That's what you think.
Rumor has it Beavis' nickname for AntH is Buttface.
Again I ask the question I asked one of my friends when he first introduced that to me back in March: What the fuck happened to Eric Roberts' career? That came out in 2013, just five years after The Dark Knight did.
You're being shockingly myopic. Just because he had a small roll in TDK doesn't mean his career was going to blow up, Anthony Michael Hall hasn't done much since. They even replaced him in Vacation with Ed Helms. And it's one thing if Mr. Roberts' career was doing swell up until TDK - it wasn't. And it's one thing if Eric Roberts didn't work after - and that's where the magic and mystery of Mr. Roberts come in. You look up an actor like, let's say AMH, and he's done a fair amount of things - TV work, TV movies, etc. Nothing too crazy, but nothing too stand-out either.
Now look at Eric Roberts' filmography. Really look at it. Absorb it. He is quite possibly the hardest working actor in Hollywood, and nothing in his filmography makes sense. His 2016 filmography alone goes on for pages. He does Christian movies. He stars in the Lifetime Franchise Stalked By My Doctor. He does telenovelas - and not just appears but has recurring roles. He apparently does Italian telenovelas, including one from 2016 where he plays "Giovanni Geraldi" and all I can think of is Brad Pitt's Bon Journo from Inglourious Basterds. He does actual American TV shows like Suits and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He does Star Trek fan films. He does Human Centipede 3. And in 2017 he's going to be a Roman Guard in a biopic of Pontius Pilate. So it's one thing if he's done a couple of bad things, but when you're in like 50 bad things a year? That laddy is something worth studying.
A Talking Cat!?! is below even all of those things, though. It's a shitty, almost homemade family film that's desperately trying to resist its natural desire to be a gay twink porno (which it only partially succeeds in doing).
For any other actor, yes. For any other actor, it would be the most baffling thing you can think of. And when I initially started down this road, sure, it was the same for Eric Roberts. But when you really understand Eric Roberts, you realize, it's just another piece of the puzzle. Is he insane? Is he pretending to be insane? Is he doing the craziest things he can find just to do it? Is there a method to his madness? Can you hire him for a quart of gin? Does he sleep? He is like a modern day Hamlet, which will come to pass in 2018 when he plays Hamlet in a straight to DVD version of "Hamlet". Not Blu-Ray, just DVD.
