I wrote about this on Crimespree Cinema, but am tossing out here as well.
On Good Morning America, Paul Newman said:
"I'm not able to work anymore as an actor at the level I would want to."
"You start to lose your memory, your confidence, your invention. So that's pretty much a closed book for me."
This reduces me to a sniveling little boy. I don't want him to quit, I want more Newman!
He and Robert Redford had been planning on making another movie together, with plans for it to be a big screen version of Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods.
Newman had said that would be his final film. I am guessing that must have fell through.
Here is hoping they do get back together for one final flick.
