Fred O'Bannion - Dazed and Confused
On a much, much, much, much, MUCH lighter note, Richard Linklater’s hysterical indie comedy Dazed and Confused gives us a pitch perfect portrait of a bully that gets his comeuppance and then some, with the character of Fred O’Bannion, who just happened to be played by a doughy and (at the time) very unknown Ben Affleck. Yes, Fred is the classic brand of jock bully that takes joy in chasing nerds on bikes in his pickup truck (littered with empty beer cans) so that he can mercilessly kick their butts. In the end of the film, he definitely gets his comeuppance, though but to tell you how would simply be giving away too much. Check out this classic and see for yourself. You’ll also see some of the first performances from the likes of Mathew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich, Renee Zellwegger and lots of other huge stars whose surnames are really hard to remember how to spell!
