Vintage Michael Biehn
by M. Lizabeth Currain
Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. Sunday gets a bad rap. It’s not her fault that she is the last day before everyone usually has to go back to work. That’s just the way the cookie crumbled for old Sunday. But no longer shall she be associated only with the dread of going back to work or school! Think of Sundays as your chance to see what weird crush I’ll have this week!
This Sunday, my gift to you is Michael Beihn!
I am naming Michael Biehn as a vintage crush, because I have loved him ever since I saw Terminator. Kyle Reese is probably one of my favorite characters in a movie. Mainly for delivering this line (scoot to about 51 seconds in):
When I was in high school, I wrote a speech for a competition about how Terminator was the greatest love story of our time. I still stand by this. HE TRAVELED ACROSS TIME FOR HER! The speech was pretty epic and went over well with my peers. I think the judges at the competition didn’t know what to make of it. Obviously, those judges had their heads planted firmly up their asses in the year 1984 when Terminator came out, otherwise I would have won.
Some basics according to IMDB:
Full Name: Michael Connell Biehn
Born: July 31, 1956 in Anniston, Alabama, USA
Height: 6′! Mama like.
Films/Television: He’s acted in 85 titles. Including Tombstone with fellow Vintage Crush, Val Kilmer. He’s also written and directed two things that no one probably cares about.
Fun Fact: Or ‘Sad Fact’…it said that the studio pushed for a nomination for best supporting actor for his role in The Abyss (excellent movie!) but he didn’t get it. Boo! He should have been nominated for Terminator.
…and, just tell me a time and place.
The last part of this is about to get to’ally nerdy.
“Was there someone special?” “Special?” “A girl, you know?”
“Sorry, I’m so sorry.”
“Pain can be controlled. You just disconnect it.” “So you feel nothing?”
“It was very old, torn, faded.”
“You seemed just a little sad.”
“I memorized every line, every curve.”
You don’t even want to know how much time I spent on that! But hey, at least I’m not making fan videos set to the music of Sarah McLachlan.
Have a good night everyone!
