David Caruso - A case study

Click on drawing to enlarge!
Believe it or not people, but someone really took the time to sum up the utter ridiculousness that Icon of Idiocy David Caruso is in a diagram.
Good work! We like it!
Note the discrepancy in effort Caruso puts into things like quality acting - which ALWAYS should come first if one wants to call himself an actor - and the amount of screen-time time used for posing, props - We are sure Caruso would be lost without them- ridiculous mannersms etc.
The smaller the talent/charisma the more one has to rely on the above.
Persona is a living, breathing entity. That means it needs to be taken care of every few hours. Otherwise it withers. Think David Caruso who seems to have not been fine-tuning or even daring to overhaul his persona for changing times and more competition in the crime-program TV space. ...
Quote of the day - "If it features the voice of David Caruso, I will burn every copy of it.WITH MY MIND." (http://www.joystiq.com/2007/12/19/mtvs-next-big-thing-bruckheimer-teams-up-for-game-studio/)
