He's just one of those actors you can't help but like -- and it doesn't hurt that he has the talent to boot -- grabbing an Oscar nomination for Good Night, and Good Luck. Or, if you want to go really old-school, his uber-excellent portrayal of a tough-guy alien in John Sayles' Brother From Another Planet. Strathairn will play the father of two girls who have just come home from a mental institution, and find that home life isn't so comfortable -- between an unbalanced stepmother, who is being played by Elizabeth Banks (The 40 Year-Old Virgin), and a ghost who haunts the home. The film will be the first directorial feature for Thomas and Charles Guard, from a script adapted by Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro. I'm not entirely interested in a psycho-Banks, but hopefully this remake can live up to its potential.
