Welcome to this week's Thank Allah it's Friday, with Garyx Wormuloid telling us a thing or two about Memento.

As for me, Memento blew me away just like Reservoir Dogs or The Usual Suspects or Track 29 did. Trivia fact: neither of the main protagonists, Pearce, Moss and Pantoliano, were the director's first choice. For the role of Leonard, Christopher Nolan had actually wanted Brad Pitt. Pitt did read the script, and was interested, but for one reason or another it didn't go thru. However, Guy Pearce knew that Pitt had read the script, and because of that cred gave it a try himself, and was on board. Besides Carrie Ann Moss, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd and Famke Janssen were also contenders for the role of Natalie, and Moss wasn't even in the lead. Somehow however, she got it. And because of that, she was able to push Joe Pantoliano, her Matrix co-star, for the role of Teddy - while previously, Alec Baldwin had been considered.

Speaking of Pearce, Moss and Pantoliano, where the heck are all of them now?

Nite, and have a nice weekend.
