55. The Price. Deanna downgrades her choice in men from Riker to Deivoni Ral, who gives her a foot massage on screen! To quote George C. Scott in “Hard Core”: *Turn it off, turn it off!* Matt McCoy (who has a real gift for slimy creations) plays Deivoni. He’s done some curious things in his career: he was in the 90’s greatest movie “L.A. Confidential” as the slimy TV cop based on Jack Vincennes (Kevin Spacey’s character). (Say, wouldn’t Kevin Spacey make a great Mizarian! I love Kevin Spacey! And, apropos de rien, wouldn’t Christopher Walken make the GREATEST KLINGON in Federation history!) Since “L.A. Confidential” also featured the faboo James Cromwell (I love James Cromwell too!!!), I think Curtis Hanson, the director of “LAC”, has a little hard-on for Star Trek; he was the director for “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle” which had Matt McCoy (again) as Annabelle Sciorra’s husband and John deLancie as the gynecologist who molested her. Yes. JdL was the gynecologist who molested her: swooooooooooooooooonnn! What a sexy sentence. Of course, the stupid whore turned him in to the obgyn cops and poor Q had to shoot himself. HORRIBLE, MOST HORRIBLE! Who here hates that bitch Annabelle Sciorra! Aha, I thought so! I have always fantasized about an AU version of “The Hand that Rocks The Cradle” where *she* dies and JdL is set free to molest everybody and we get to watch every bit of it! (And furthermore, wouldn’t Tommy Lee Jones make the SECOND GREATEST KLINGON IN FEDERATION HISTORY! And because he’s Tommy Lee Jones of Harvard, he could play a psychotic Klingon who recites Wallace Stevens and T.S. Eliot as he psychoes around!!!! “Death is the mother of beauty! Grrrr! We who were living are now dying with a little patience!” Wow! “You have not read *The Wasteland* until you have read it in the original Klingon!!” SWOOOOnoovius!)
