I have had many "crushes" on movie stars since then, Johnny Depp....Stephen Dorf.....but this blog is about one man who seems to have struck me in a particular manner. He is my un-sung hero from Public Enemies. His name is David Wenham, and he plays Pete Pierpont in the movie. You don't hear a lot about the man, and I think he is an amazing actor. You might remember him From the Lord of the Rings movies....he played Faramir. He is an Australian born actor who has played a large variety of acting roles.
While Public Enemies was filming in Milwaukee, I was standing on the sidewalk waiting to catch a glimpse of some of the actors. I saw Johnny drive in, Dorf drive in and then back out, and then I finally got to see David. The only problem was, I didn't know it was him until it was too late. He was in a black SUV, and drove right past me. I reckognized him, and tried to say hi , but it was too late! All I got out instead was "Hey, that's the guy from Lord of the Rings!" I felt like such an idiot. Oh well.
I was wondering to myself, why don't some of the other actors pop out to say hello? I am sure that this question has been asked, and answered, time and time again. I just wish that they knew people DO know who they are, and would love to talk to them. Fans line up to see Johnny, and don't get me wrong.....I did too, but I was really hoping to say hello to people like John Michael Bolger, and David Wenham. Johnny is always in the media, and I have barley heard any news on some of the other actors. I just want to let them know that they are a wonderful addition to the movie, and I am a BIG fan. ( I know that sounds cliche) It's not everyday that they film a HUGE movie in Wisconsin, and I feel lucky just to be a part of that. Maybe one day I will get to meet David, but until then.....he is my un-sung hero of Public Enemies.
Here are some pictures of David Wenham for you to enjoy! ( I know I do)
This is David portraying Faramir, From Lord of the Rings
