No Country For Goonies

In a follow-up to my blog article on the Cohen Brothers and No Country For Old Men I thought I would mention something funny that I noticed last night. It was family movie night at the Unperfected Jew's house last night and we broke out The Goonies for the first time. I had not seen it since the 80's and was never a big fan (sorry big fans) but I felt that it was time for the kids to see it. Even though there are a few Jews in the film including Corey (sigh) Feldman sans Corey Haim (also a Jew) this post is not about them. The big surprise for me was seeing a teenage Josh Brolin speaking almost with a lisp and at one point in the film riding a 4 year old girls pink bike with training wheels and I thought that is a far cry from the tough Texan he plays in NO Country for Old Men. He is also is not Jewish even thought his step mother (Babs) is. Another piece of trivia is that the top 3 kids billed in the film were all sons of already famous fathers in Hollywood. Brolin son of James Brolin, Feldman son of Bob Feldman [(mother was also a playboy bunny just in case that counts). Also slight tangent after checking on "The Wik" I found this:[edit] Relationship with Michael Jackson
Feldman was once a friend of Michael Jackson until a visit to Manhattan, where Feldman claimed that Jackson abandoned him while he and his kids left the city. During the 2005 Jackson molestation trial, Feldman alleged in a 20/20 interview that Jackson had shown him nude photos.[6] Corey was subpoenaed as a witness and placed under a gag order. He is quoted saying the following in reference to what occurred between him and Jackson:
"The book was focused on venereal diseases and the genitalia and he sat down with me and he explained it to me, showed me some different pictures and discussed what those meant. I was kind of grossed out by it. I didn't think of it as a big deal and for all these years, I probably never thought twice about it".] and Sean Astin son of The Adam Family's John Astin but since that he was not his biological father, his mother Patty Duke will more than cover the child of celebrities moniker. I was just blown away again when I found out that we have a 4th child start of a famous parent, Martha Plimpton daughter of Keith Carradine. I just found that out from this blog posting: It has some fun facts about where all the stars were 20yrs later at the Goonie reunion. Kerri Green who played Andy (the girl) might be Jewish..does anyone know? It was written by Steven Spielberg
