We can only hope. I'm finding myself starting to believe that Gerry will always be that "you know you recognize him, but you can't quite place his face" guy. As a fan, I'm ok with that - as long as he stays working! LOL
POTO was supposed to be his "sure thing."
No one thought he'd go unnoticed after 300 -- especially with that carnival of publicity. The excitement associated with the promotion of 300 was palpable.
PSILY was supposed to be the big romantic comedy ... "starring opposite 'Academy Award Winner' Hilary Swank" that would keep him pinned to the cork board.
blah, blah, blah
Yet, here he is, still under the radar. In my opinion, that's a good thing. I know many want to see him splattered all over the likes of People magazine, etc. But I LIKE that he's still our little secret! Of course, I get annoyed having to explain "Gerry who." And it IS nice to be able to say, "Remember King Leo, in 300 ..." and see the light of recognition go off. But for Gerry's well-being -- I think it works to his advantage to be able to still bike the streets of New York relatively unmolested.
Whenever he manages to get into the "entertainment" mags (ie People) I end up pissed off because they're only interested in the "man whore" angle. Although I don't pretend to be one of the "beauty of his soul" types, even I know there's more to him than that and would prefer to see him go "unrecognized" by the mainstream press if "man whore" is the best they're going to give him.
I'm not all that certain the "fame" is as comfortable for him as he anticipated. I think he's a "chameleon" on purpose. And that's fine with me -- as long as he surfaces on occasion. ;-)
Here, Here and well said. I totally agree with you. The more I learn about Gerry and his passion for acting I begin to feel that the more celebrity an actor has the less believeable he/she is in a particular role.
