Mr. Perry Gets His Way

This isn't a particularly timely post. Yeah, I know that there have been tsunamis and deaths of famous athletes since I last posted on this blog. Still, this just dawned on me tonight. A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about my Robert Sean Leonard siting. Leonard co-stars on FOX's new medical drama House (Tuesdays at 9 pm). Robert Sean Leonard got his acting break as Neil Perry in Dead Poets Society. In that movie, Neil Perry loves acting, but his overbearing father demands that the sensitive Perry become a doctor. In the end, Neil Perry kills himself. However, all these years later, Mr. Perry finally got his wish. Robert Sean Leonard grew up to be a doctor after all -- albeit in an entirely unrelated, television drama.
