Jerry Devine vs. Kim Fowley


Eddie Izzard as Jerry Devine in "Velvet Goldmine"

Michael Shannon as Kim Fowley in "The Runaways"

Telling quote: "That man sitting over there in the white suit... is the biggest thing to come out of this country sinced sliced Beatles."

Telling quote: "The only guy who's honest is the guy who sings in the shower. Everyone else is a prostitute."

Michael Shannon as Kim Fowley! Because he stole every scene, didn't shy away from the make up, and killed this monologue:

"Rock 'n' roll is a blood sport, a sport of men. It's for the people in the dark, the death cats, the masturbators, the outcasts who have no voice, no way of saying I hate this world, my father's a faggot, fuck you, fuck authority - I want an orgasm! Now, growl! Moan! This ain't women's lib, kiddies - the is women's libido! I wanna see the scratch marks down their fucking backs! Now, do it again. Again. Like your boyfriend just fucked your sister in your parent's bed. LIKE YOU WANT A FUCKING ORGASM!"
