I can see how an incident like that would really hurt Rip Torn's ascendant acting career at this point in his life.

I wish I would have seen the ad and noticed that it was Rip Torn. I'm sure there were many households with people saying "Hey, is that Rip Torn?"

Rip Torn looked drunk in Wonder Boys.

He stood up on stage at a symposium near the beginning of the movie and said pretentiously, "I am a writer." The camera pans to Michael Douglas, who rolls his eyes at Tobey Maguire.

I should watch that movie tonight. Robert Downey Jr. plays a gay book editor who is hooked on alcohol and pills...basically playing himself, except for the gay part.

I'm not sure why I commented on this...I guess to give my favorite acting memory of Rip Torn.

Definitely Rip's best role was Patches O'Houlihan in Dodgeball! "If you can dodge traffic, you can dodge a ball!"
