    I was watching a Quentin Tarantino flick the other day called Jackie Brown and couldn't help thinking that of all the Fonda's, Bridget is my favorite. Et tu?

    Is Jane the Bum video lady ?

    Sadly, I've only heard of Jane and Henry, her dad iirc. But that was so long ago, that i cant decide between the two.

    On Golden Pond.

    Julia. That had Vanessa Redgrave.

    Coming Home.

    Can't recall any others. But she was a pretty famous name (in India) during my kidhood.

    tbh, I was more into Meryl Streep.

    Peter, because I look just like him.
    People come up to me a lot (usually when my hair is longer) and say, "you look just like that actor guy." It's been so long since he was really famous that no one really remembers who he is.

    He'll be 72 soon, you know.

    Most people would know Peter from "Easy Rider." Maybe you weren't much of an outlaw biker.

    I don't think there could be much debate that old Henry had the best body of work. If we're just talking best body, might have to go with Jane, I never paid much attention to Bridget.

    Greatest family in the movies business, along the Barrymores (better than the Douglas and the Quinn´s, certainly)

    Well, I'm at least a little younger than him.

    It's been a long while since I looked like Captain America. I'm about where he was in Ulee's Gold.

    Peter. Ive only seen him once in that movie 3:10 to Yuma, but he seemed like a pretty bad ass old man

    Bridget married Danny Elfman, a film composer who was once the frontman for a Southern California rock band. I think she quit acting when they had their first kid about ten years ago.

    That Southern Cal rock band was none other than Oingo-Boingo. Probably the best live rock performance I ever saw. Almost three hours of high-energy Rock & Roll. About twenty minutes into the set, someone threw a shoe and hit Elfman. The band stopped, Elfman berated the unknown assailant with a few well-placed F-bombs and encouraged the crowd to take the matter into their own hands so the band could continue their mission to rock. At that, the band picked up exactly where they had stopped, going from 0-100mph in an instant. The energy level in the Riviera Theater, already at a fevered pitch, rose to a level of Rock & Roll transcendence.

    Jane doesn't deserve such a nephew-in-law.
