Of course, we have to differ between harmless pre-adolescent fan-caricatures and drawings/enactments/spoofs by those who are real masters of their trade.
If someone continously is made fun of - can that really be seen as a compliment? Or is it more a ridicule of the person itself and the non-existing (acting) talents?
We think in Caruso's case the latter is rather applicable.
Who - in the history of TV- has been made more fun of than Icon of Idiocy David Caruso ? Not even the unbeatable William Shattner got/gets as much flack from the media as David Caruso. Not that it is undeserved. It is the publics' small but very effective revenge for the bad acting/line reading we had to endure over the past six years.
A real masterpiece - and oddly neglected by Caruso's few remaining fans - is the following video about the writers strike and yts aftermath for scripted nightmares like CSI Miami. One even could say it beats Jim Carrey's imitation by far:
Quote of the day - "I would have to say David Caruso. He ruins CSI Miami for me. Another one for David Caruso, without his ego they could get some good actors..." (http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=28898864)
