I just saw Thirteen Days and was proud to have watched it with my wife - mainly because most other Kennedy biopics are awful corny and dated. This 2000 film was crisp, dramatic, and very well acted, and frankly I think it would be a great idea to do more films about the Kennedy's with Bruce Greenwood (JFK) and Steven Culp (RFK) in those roles.

I'm very surprised the greenwood essentially faded into obscurity after that role, I expected that to be a breakout role for him, and yet he's done next to nothing of note after it, or maybe he has and I haven't seen it.

He's done quite a bit of stuff since, just not a lot of leading man stuff. I actually met him once at a friend's birthday party and he is hilarious; maybe he should get into comedy roles instead.

I won't be rude in posting the IMDB listing of his, but he's been pretty much been accepting smaller roles - as to why, I don't know

a little OT, but Dylan Baker gave the best performance of the film as Robert McNamara.

IMHO Costner's accent was a bit distracting in 'Thirteen Days', other than that, a very good film.
