You guys don’t understand. I used to watch these two as Rooster Hannigan & Lily St. Regis in the 1999 Disney version of “Annie", which was an important movie in my Broadway upbringing. So the fact that they still keep in touch, show their affection for each other, and that they may be in another movie together, it gives me some hardcore childhood feels right now!
When I was younger I used to have a tendency to go for the bad guys in movies. Whether it was Gaston (beauty and the beast), King Einon (dragonheart), or Toad (x-men). I always found them more attractive and cooler than the good-guys. The only exceptions being Twister where I wanted to be the good-guys and Lord of the Rings (because the bad guys aren’t even human/hobbit/elf/dwarf -hahah- and they’re gross).
So, when I was little I used to have a huge crush on Rooster in the movie Annie.He was funny, he didn’t look too shabby, and he was just a slick, witty bad guy.
i was just thinkin about how i havent seen the 1982 version of Annie in forever. how can you go wrong with this trio?? (and, yes, i put Carol Burnett, Tim Curry, and Bernadette Peters above the rest of the cast)
