I usually couldn’t give two squishy farts about how actors spend their spare time, particularly if they’re attempting to wax intellectual about various topics on Twitter. I just don’t care. However, this isn’t the case with actor Keith Coogan, who you may remember from such classics as “Adventures in Babysitting”, “Toy Soldiers”, and “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead”. Every few days, the guy offers up a single monologue, which is generally from a memorable scene from a popular motion picture or play. Here’s the kicker: Keith is really good, not to mention remarkably funny. As of this writing — he does, after all, frequently update his blog — Coogan has contributed nearly 170 monologues, all of which are at the very least entertaining.
If you’re interested in checking them out, I strongly suggest venturing over to his Monologue a Day blog, or, better yet, swing by his cinematicYouTube page and investigate his offerings. Below you’ll find five of my current favorites, though I’ll refrain from identifying the films so you can puzzle them out for yourselves.
