Five time Oscar-nominated British acting great, Albert Finney has passed away at the age of 82. I’ve loved him in every movie I’ve seen him in, from Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Tom Jones, The Dresser, and Murder on the Orient Express, to Erin Brockovich, Annie, The Gathering Storm, and Skyfall. He was a brilliant actor and while I haven’t seen every film of his, the ones I’ve seen left me with a deep admiration for him.


I don’t think we necessarily lie. I mean, we make our living by pretending that we’re someone else. I don’t tell tall tales. I always tell the truth.
