Rutger Hauer

Post by Snake-Eyes » Wed Mar 14, 2012 9:32 pm

Extremely talented yet still very underrated in my opinion, Rutger is a bit of a cult-hero of mine. His very presence seems to 'elevate' any film he appears in.

He's played many different memorable characters throughout his career, from the heroic to the twisted & villainous and even the almost tragic (that would be Roy Batty) but the man is a very down-to-earth and grounded individual. Listening to the commentary track he recorded for HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN with director Jason Eisener, he comes across as a really humorous and likeable guy too; very non-Hollywood and still has many 'European' sensibilities.


It's really cool the way he never takes himself too seriously and is always up for even the most craziest roles/projects. If you've not seen it, check out the 1987 TV movie ESCAPE FROM SOBIBOR for which he won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor.

Much love for Rutger Hauer. Still love him to bits in The Hitcher. How dare Sean Bean think he can replace the Hauer. Hauer has a unique look, especially with those blue eyes. He does a lot for independent cinema. Good on the bloke
