      Its a very good scene. Love that speech and like that movie too.

      Actually was in two minds whether to post this scene or the Scent of Woman scene. Decided to post this one later.

    I turned down Die Hard: Al Pacino

    Veteran star Al Pacino is convinced he gave Bruce Willis his big break in Hollywood by turning down the lead role in Die Hard.

    The Godfather star has revealed he was one of the first actors approached to play tough cop John McClane in the 1988 blockbuster, but he passed on the script, reported Daily

    Mirror.

    “I gave that boy a career! You know who else I gave a career to? Harrison Ford in Star Wars – that role was mine for the taking but I couldn’t understand the script,” he said.

    The 73-year-old compared himself to Jennifer Lawrence, who is currently at the height of her career, saying, “I was the one. Things came to me.”

    But he admitted having regrets about some of the roles he had turned down. “I’m not a very good judge of what’s good.”

    James Rebhorn, Star of ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Scent of a Woman,’ Dies at 65

    Hollywood is mourning one of its most recognized “that guys” as James Rebhorn has died at age 65.

    The veteran character actor, who had an extensive resume of memorable supporting roles in a wide variety of genres from sci-fi blockbusters (“Independence Day”) to gritty thrillers (“The Game”) to Oscar-winning tearjerkers (“Scent of a Woman”), passed away on Friday surrounded by his family, a rep for Rebhorn confirms to Yahoo Movies.

    In all, he appeared in more than 100 television shows, feature films, and stage productions, staking his claim as one of the industry’s go-to “that guy” thespians.

    Rebhorn was born on Sept. 1, 1948, in Philadelphia and moved to Anderson, Indiana, shortly thereafter, where he matriculated from Madison Heights High School. He attended Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio, where he appeared in theatrical productions of Aristophanes’s “Lysistrata” and Moliere’s “Tricks of Scapin.” After graduating in 1970, he moved to New York City, where he earned a Master of Fine Arts at Columbia University and became active in the theater scene.

    Rebhorn made his big screen debut as the Casting Director in the little-seen show business comedy, “The Yum Yum Girls” (1976). Some of his most memorable roles include New England prep school headmaster Mr. Trask in “Scent of a Woman” (1992), Secretary of Defense Albert Nimzicki in “Independence Day” (1996), put-upon actor Jim Feingold in “The Game” (1997), and wealthy shipbuilder Herbert Greenleaf (the father of Jude Law’s character) in “The Talented Mr. Ripley” (1999).

    Rebhorn also worked with his “Scent of a Woman” co-star Al Pacino in “Carlito’s Way” (1993) and his “The Game” co-star Michael Douglas in “Basic Instinct” (1992). Other notable film appearances include “Lorenzo’s Oil” (1992), Ridley Scott’s “White Squall” (1996), “Meet the Parents” (2000), “Scotland, Pa.” (2001), and “Cold Mountain” (2003).

    Rebhorn’s most recent film roles include Marvin in “Real Steel” (2011), Joseph Crudstaff in “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” (2012), and Frank in Mike Birbiglia’s “Sleepwalk with Me” (2012).

    Rebhorn had several notable TV credits, including the recurring role of Reese Hughes on “White Collar” (2009-2013) and appearances on “Law & Order,” “Boston Legal” and “The Book of Daniel.” His most recent television role was Frank Mathison, the father of CIA operative Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), on Showtime’s “Homeland.”
