The main character in the movie, "Slingblade." It has been awhile since I saw the movie, and his name escapes me at the moment. He loved "mustard `n biscuit and fried pertaters." LOL

Another great character is the sweet black inmate who had supernatural powers in "The Green Mile." I loved that guy! He was so big, gentle, and good-hearted! " I`m just tired, Boss, tired of folks bein` ugly to each other."

You may be referring to Billy Bob Thornton. He received an Academy Award nomination for his role in that movie.

The role portrayed by Michael Clarke Duncan who left us in 2012 at age 54.

I liked Mrs. Robinson. "Mrs. Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?" I am a fan of Dustin Hoffman as well. "Is it safe?" In spite of his politics, I was always an Eastwood fan? "Do you feel lucky?" Donald Sutherland, "The only way I can keep a Tiger busy is by letting him shoot holes in me." And, then, there is always, "Frankly my dear...."
