Not that phone thing---I have no need for such frivolities. I have no clue how to use such frivolities.
No, what I mean is I want the sidekick in the movies. He's always my favorite character: sometimes it's because he's the funny one that makes the movie worth watching, and sometimes it's because he's the one supporting the main character-making him become the awesome person he can be. The proverbial backbone, if you will.
For example, Tommy in Invincible. Or, Matthew Fox's character in We Are Marshall. Plus, he's a little bit of a red-head in that movie and what you may not know about me is that I'm a sucker for red-heads.
Which brings me to my next sidekick: Lyle/Napster on Italian Job. You can tell me you don't want to hang out with a guy as hilarious as that--but I won't believe you.
"You'll never shut down the real Napster."
Another favorite sidekick is Lenny from That Thing You Do.
"Where was I? Oh...playing songs on my guitar."
And speaking of songs on guitars---Kevin Jonas. People (and by that I mean teenaged girls) say that Joe is the cute one, but they're fully wrong.
Last, I would be remiss if I failed to mention the sidekick that started it all. He's tough as anything but loyal, too. "I say, that what you say, is what I say." That's right-Spot Conlin from Newsies. In honor of him, I found the following video on youtube. I don't know what's worse: the fact that someone had time to make the video, or the fact that the random searches I do led me to this. I tried to post it, but I still don't know how....so just click on the link and enjoy!
