Christopher Guest

You've probably heard by now that there's a new Christopher Guest movie coming out: For Your Consideration. It features the usual reperatory of Guest's cohorts -- Eugene Levy (who often co-writes with Guest), Michael McKean, Harry Shearer (McKean & Shearer co-wrote Spinal Tap with Guest & Rob Reiner), Parker Posey, Fred Willard and Catherine O’Hara. For more info on Guest & his films, check out the NY Times article, "The Shape Shifter."
While he may not have written it, when someone mentions Christopher Guest, my first thoughts go to The Princess Bride's six-fingered man.
And then my thoughts go to the Remains of the Day lunchbox.
