    I had the BIGGEST crush on this man when I was in high school. He is awesome. Can’t wait!

    He probably fancies you as well… with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

    My favorite comment from Hopkins about his work as Lecter and how he was so effective – He said something along the lines of describing the way he approached something as simple as blinking – He rarely did it on screen as Lecter, and when he did, it seems almost a concious “here, I am going to blink” thought, not subconcious. It helped to amp up the feeling that Lecter was very calculating in each and every thing he did.
    That said, all other Lecter actors are now held to this standard in my brain, and have been let downs across the board.
