Re: [Clive Cussler fan club] Matthew McConaughey IS Dirk Pitt (R)
- Matthew McConaughey may portray Dirk Pitt But he is no Dirk Pitt. And all the
Hollywood Bullshit on the planet won't make it so! Every actor has fire in
his belly. You dope's haven't even got a script yet your convinced the box
office poison on two legs is the best possible Pitt. Mr. Cussler Please just pull
the plug! Not every book has to be a movie, if they can't do it right don't do
it at all. As my evidence....
"Dirk Pitt relaxed and slouched in a swivel chair, stretching out his legs
until his six-foot-three-inch body was on a near horizontal plane. Then he
yawned and ran his hand through a thick mat of wavy black hair.
Pitt was a lean, firm-muscled man in the prime of physical shape for someone
who didn't run ten miles a day or look upon the exertion and sweat of
bodybuilding as a celestial tonic against old age. His face wore the tanned weathered
skin of an outdoorsman who preferred the sun to the fluorescent lighting of
an office. His deep green, opaline eyes radiated a strange combination of
warmth and cruelty while his lips seemed eternally locked in a friendly grin.
He was a smooth article who moved easily among the rich and powerful, but
preferred the company of men and women who drank their liquor straight up and
liked to get their hands dirty."
