Albert Brooks.

I (finally) watched Broadcast News. I loved it. Love James L. Brooks. Love Holly Hunter. The movie was nominated for 7 Oscars and didn't win 1! A damn shame.
But, as I was watching I remembered how I am in love with Albert Brooks. This started with Defending Your Life and got worse after Mother.
He is the greatest. I have an age-inappropriate crush on him.
It doesn't help anything when his character has lines like these:
"Wouldn't this be a great world if insecurity and desperation made us more attractive? If 'needy' were a turn-on?"
Love that.

Fun Facts:
a) His real name is Albert Einstein.
b) His brother is Super Dave Osbourne. (Loved him on Arrested Development.)
c) He turned down the lead in When Harry Met Sally
