What was his role in "In the Line of Fire?" Did he play the man in the wheelchair who brandished a gun if Leary ever comes back?

Yes ... Professor Riger:

Right! :D

I guess this is a pretty hard one to find new pictures for, but maybe you could post a new one in any of our other stalled trivia threads?

It would be nice if we could get a new trivia thread started! :)

AKA, if you're right, can you find another one? A picture that has an allusion to a movie by Clint?

I can't do links I'm afraid but the story I read about the casting  is on the bbc website where it says actors will portray the three when younger.. Maybe it's possible that, that will take up quite a large portion of the film..

Thanks, Gant. Here is the link to the BBC story:

Clint Eastwood's new film about three Americans who stopped a terror attack on a train to Paris will star the real-life heroes of that 2015 incident. Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone will play themselves in The 15:17 to Paris, based on the book they co-wrote with Jeffrey E Stern. Actors will play younger versions of the trio in the film, which is thought to focus on the three men's friendship.

It also says:
The film is the latest in a series of movies Eastwood has made based on real-life people in extraordinary situations. His last film, Sully, told of pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who landed his damaged plane on the Hudson River in 2009.

If made, The 15:17 to Paris will not be the first fact-inspired film to feature non-actors in leading roles. In 2012 release Act of Valour, real-life Navy Seals were shown embarking on a fictional covert mission.

There is a tradition, meanwhile, of the subjects of Hollywood biopics appearing in the films they inspired. Jim Garrison had a small role in JFK, which dramatised his investigations into the Kennedy assassination, while lawyer Erin Brockovich made a cameo in the 2000 film about her life.

Another notable example is Audie Murphy, a decorated soldier who turned to acting after World War II and went on to play himself in the 1955 film version of his memoir To Hell and Back.

Welcome, 66harley! Enjoy the Board! :)

From what I've read actors will be involved as well so maybe the real life heroes part in the movie may be fairly small.. ?

Well, the story linked to on the previous page says ...

The heroic trio is comprised of Anthony Sadler, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, and U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, who play themselves in the film.

I think it extremely odd that Eastwood would choose nonprofessionals to play the three lead roles. ???

Dear Raewyn,

I can only repeat one word from the messages of 2M and Matt: Heartbroken.

Thank you for taking the time, in the midst of so much hardship and suffering, to grace our board with your presence. Speaking of grace, the Hemingway line that "Courage is grace under pressure" might have been written with you in mind. You will be missed by everyone here.

I will be thinking of you and your family in the days and weeks to come.

I wish words didn't feel so horribly inadequate at times like this.

Goodby, my friend.

And since we turned the page ... Matt's new one:

Okay next question will be music -- and this is another that was from my trivia night.  Without listening to the song or Googling -- name the U.S. state mentioned in the song "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay".
