It is said within the profession the key to really good acting is to not stray far from who one really is, to play oneself as it were. JN along with many other good actors seems to have followed this maxim.

As one said previously JN is JN, you know pretty much what you are going to get.

He's in his 70's, right? So he's going to look old. He is old!

I love him, though, and I think he is a very talented actor. I'm kind of glad he's leaving before he can't act anymore, leaving on a high note.

Hmmmmm, that's different from what I was told in college.

The way to be a good actor, to really develop your skill, is to play someone quite different from yourself.

But, whatever works for one. It's just one of those things that it works for some people this way, others that way.

It's like what I observed, realized while taking acting classes. Looking at my "professional" classmates, that world was serious, their bread and butter. To me, it was a game! Which wasn't bad, a prof told me when I expressed that. That's the way to do it.......if you can afford it.

When did this morph from a pretty valid question about when JN really started to look old, into an affirmation of the fact that [gasp!] we all get old? As if we were not all aware of that without reading an internet article about human aging.

Yeesh.
