Since seeing Young Guns, I have been an unapologetic Lou Diamond Phillips fan. I'm pretty sure I've seen every movie he's starred in during his career, from successful (La Bamba), to cheesy fun (Lone Hero), to questionable (Fingerprints), to "why the hell is he in this crap" (The Trail to Hope Rose, Bats, Route 666). Thankfully, he's found his stride the last couple of years on the TV series Longmire as Henry Standing Bear. (Anyone who's read the Craig Johnson novels on which the series is based can tell you that casting him was pitch-perfect). Lou is a huge supporter of the military and seems like an all-around nice guy. This recent Australian TV interview demonstrates that he's also pretty funny.
