O.K, survivor fans,the next installment of the CEWB survivor series begins on Wednesday.The Eastwood Costar "Character" survivor game.I don't think this type of survivor has ever been attempted before here on the board,so let's hope I don't stuff it up.

Ever since the great Bridges Of Madison County debate ended back in September,it's been fairly quiet here on the board, except for the Flags of our Fathers threads. Hopefully this will bring the fans back.

We have over 270 characters from 1964 to 2004,so I hope everyone has a lot of fun with this as we've had in previous survivor games here on the board.You can join the game at anytime,so don't fret if you miss a round here and there as we are going to be here for a while.

We will be going through the characters by decade,so we'll start with all the characters from the 1960's battling it out for the top five positions.Those top five characters will then be rested,and we will then move on and see who will join them from the 1970's,80's,90's and 2000's.So at the end of all that, we are left with 25 characters for the final all out battle.If you haven't seen the lists of characters yet,they are HERE.

The first round will begin at approx. 4:00p.m (AEDST) this Wednesday, November 1, and each round will be open for 24 hours*.

We will be voting two characters off at a time unless otherwise stated.

*Subject to change

In previous character survivor games there has been some confusion as to how people are voting and why.What I'm looking for here is the "Best Performance" by a costar.
The reason I've gone with a character costar instead of just a costar survivor is since so many actors have appeared in more than one Eastwood film.So in the event of say, two of Geoffrey Lewis's characters coming face to face,you would vote off the weaker performance.

Just to clarify, I believe tgy's time zone is 11 hours ahead of UTC/GMT, and a full 16 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time. (tgy just went on Daylight Savings Time, and we in the U.S. just went off it.)

So, in the Eastern U.S., this game will be starting at midnight on Tuesday and the first round will run all day Wednesday until midnight on Wednesday. 8)

Same here. Inger stands out as being very, very, very bad.

I don't know who Rotten Luck Willie is, and I'm not going to watch Paint Your Wagon again to find out. Still, I'm sure he deserves to go.

Inger Stevens - Rachel Warren

Tom Ligon - Horton Fenty

I'm with Lin on this one. For one thing I haven't seen Where Eagles Dare in ages so I don't feel comfortable commenting on anyone's performance in that film.

As for Inger Stevens, eh...sure she can go.

I cut Harve Presnell a break because I don't remember him having that many lines to begin with, and he was probably hired just so there would be at least one person in that film who could sing!

Yup, Harve was the only real singer in the cast of Paint Your Wagon ... he sings one of the best-known tunes in the musical/film, "They Call the Wind Maria." You really need a resonant baritone for that one and Presnell certainly had it back then.

In one of those typical Clint "closing the circle" things, he turns up in a recent Eastwood film. Does anyone know it without looking it up?

O.K.  Horton and Horace is fine with me too.  Although I always liked Horton's line :

I saw that when I was looking up some additional info on Harve (before you put the question out there). Pretty cool!

Is it okay to join in on the next decade? I have not seen Paint Your Wagon. I would not feel right voting without seeing it.

You can join the game at anytime Richard.

I wouldn't worry too much.I don't think any of the cast will get too far in the game.

My dad and I both noticed that during the credits, we were like heh, cool.  It's like Eli Wallach in Mystic River.
