That Guy Actor of the Week: Adam Baldwin

Oddly enough I first saw Adam Baldwin as a mean bully in the 80s movie Reckless.   That was a pretty cool movie about a rebellious type in high school who gets involved with the typical blond cheerleader.   Darryl Hannah is naked in that film and Adam Baldwin plays Mr. Jock butt head.

Most of you know Baldwin as Animal Mother in Full Metal Jacket.   But Baldwin’s been around the block more than once in Hollywood.  His other notables include a starring role in DC Cab and playing a military man in Independence Day.

All tolled, Baldwin has 104 titles to his name so he’s no stranger to the screen.  It’s hard to believe this guy is 50 now.   Actually he turned 50 yesterday.  Happy birthday Adam!

    I wont add anything original to the comments…
    The Man they call Jayne!
    He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor,
    He stood up to the man and he gave him what for.
    Our love for him now, aint hard to explain,
    The hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne!”
