  1. Artie is one of my favorite characters in anything, ever, and Torn was great in Defending Your Life.

    Did anyone else know the Easy Rider story?

    “Torn’s reputation for irascibility had already been established inside the industry after a row with Dennis Hopper during the pre-production of Easy Rider, the seminal 1969 counterculture biker movie, that led to Torn being replaced by Jack Nicholson before shooting began. The incident became more widely known after Hopper claimed on a TV talkshow in 1994 that Torn had pulled a knife on him; Torn subsequently sued, claiming that Hopper had in fact pulled the knife on him. The court found in Torn’s favour, and awarded him $475,000 in damages.”
