Where to start? This man pretty much uttered some of the most famous, cheesiest lines in movie history and any cult 60's science fiction movie worth watching stars Charlton Heston. His lines have sprinkled pop culture for decades from 'G-d damn you, damn you all to Hell!' to 'Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape', and the biggest spoiler line in history; 'It's not FOOD, IT'S PEOPLE!'. All his. Yet perhaps to most he will be remembered for the one line he uttered that wasn't from a movie, but from his real life role as the President of the National Rifle Association. With the increasing gun violence in America the NRA is often regarded as the last defense for Americans who wish to be able to defend themselves from other people with guns. 'They will have my gun when they pry it from my cold, dead hands'. At the time of his death he had a collection of more than 400 modern and antique guns and true to his word, there probably was some prying going on. Born John Charles Carter, he took on the name Charlton Heston for his first movie role presumably as John Carter didn't sound manly enough (note to Disney) and never looked back. The man was a a timeline of testosterone throughout history, from playing one of the first manly men (Moses) to arguably the greatest slave of the Roman Empire (Ben-Hur) to one of the last men in the world (Neville in The Omega Man). Charlton Heston feared nothing, from Julius Caesar to a world run by Apes, and he knew his calling; to be the greatest, most dramatic actor ever. There was even a rumor started by this website right now that Futurama's great Calculon was based on the man's tremendous acting abilities. Although to be fair, he probably suffered less amnesia.
Been there, done that but not too well. Continually financially restrained. Now (and still) lives in Western Canada and talks some hockey and parenting on ogieoglethorpe.blogspot.ca and watching trailers on 2minutemovies.blogspot.ca.
