I’ve finally clipped up Mitch’s scenes in the wonderful film, MAN IN THE CHAIR where he played Floyd, the step father of the main character. The film was beautiful and starred legendary Canadian actor Christopher Plummer as the titular character, former director Flash Madden. A former big name in Hollywood’s golden age whose films spurred the young Cameron Kincaid (Michael Angarano) to want to make a documentary on the conditions inside America’s Homes for the Elderly. Floyd, Mitch’s character, doesn’t think much of his stepson, of which the feelings are returned. It isn’t untl Flash intervenes that Floyd softens. As you’ll see from the clip, Mitch is only in about fifteen minutes of the film, but his scenes are pivotal as well as very well acted. This is one of my favourite Mitch performances.

One note: I had already screencapped Mitch’s scenes and uploaded them to the gallery, but when watching this film on the Canadian Sundance Channel (Chrsitopher Plummer and Cancon rules), I noticed I left out the all important end scene. So there have been about 75 screencaps added to the already bloated 1200+ in the gallery for the film Ah well, it’s Mitch.

    This is a good solid little movie and Mitch was very good as always. I really enjoyed this film. Thanks for providing this! 🙂

      Ah, my first comment on MITCH PILEGGI ONLINE, thanks DebW. And you’re welcome for the clip. You’re right, it was a very good film. It’s one of those small nuggets that just doesn’t get as much attention as say a “Transformers 15823598”. I thought all the performances were top notch. Definitely not how we’re used to seeing Mitch. I was so delighted he had some scenes with Christopher Plummer. That Flash told Floyd to stop riding the kid was so nice. I’m glad Floyd came around at the end. It made the film very satisfying.
