Nicky Katt.

b. May 11th, 1970

Nicky Katt! His official website claims that he is "a kohl-eyed actor who has oozed a steady stream of low-key testosterone through a series of films..." Gross!
Nicky Katt! A career of playing police officers, SWAT officers, detectives, businessmen, bullies, thugs and other manly roles! Including Hitler, in Full Frontal! And also an "ill fated, racist child rapist, in A Time To Kill", according to wikipedia, which is a film I'm pretty sure I've seen but don't remember anything about!
Nicky Katt! I first noticed your angry shirtless antics in Dazed and Confused, where you beat up Adam Goldberg! And then in SubUrbia where you wore a sexy muscle t-shirt and were really mean to Giovanni Ribisi! And then in Insomnia, where you told that "What has two thumbs and likes blowjobs? THIS guy" joke, and I had never heard it before and thought it was so meatheadedly stupid that I laughed more than the joke warranted! And then in The Burbs, where you are only a child but were even then playing hulking bullies!
Nicky Katt! Internet fans who love you say that you ride around LA on a Harley in a WW2 helmet! They also miss seeing you in more film roles, writing things on Myspace like "We all carry around baggage and wounds and weaknesses, but you know what, we keep going. We don't give up. Even if it means we can only be a day player, we do it." You are so manly your website is illustrated with bald eagles! Nicky Katt! You are pretty great.

  1. Goldberg to Katt, classic line..."Dominant male monkey motherfucker!" And then the sucker punch. Poetry.
