I wanna play the harbourmaster of Monterey.
He seems to be the only one in this shitshow that didn't put up with Rimas grifting for months on end.

-_-
How about the Russian mobsters or mechanics or whatever they were? I think there were three of them. In the movie, at least one should be female and smokin' hot in a Slavik way.

Maybe so...
Anyways I just heard that the harbourmaster role is no longer vacant...
Awww.... I wanted to play the Harbormaster.  I envision the scene where I buck my management by towing him out.  I explain to Rimas that I make my own rules and have "my own brand of justice", just before I kick his extension ladder down. Then I take a long draw from my cigar, exhale, and tell him through the smoke, "Batten down the hatches, motherfucker.  You're going for a ride." 

The next day the boss chews my ass about it, telling me I'm a renegade just like my old man was.  That I was never the same after my partner's death that insist on blaming myself for and was the main reason for my drinking problem and intolerance for Russians. 

Then I throw my badge down on his desk.  (I have not worked out the rest of that scene yet.)

You deserve that role!
Mr. Eastwood, please step aside

I originally had nominated Sir Anthony Perkins for the RImas role,

We might have a candidate over here for the Chicken from a kids TV-show.
But it might be cruel to seperate it from best friend Teddy Bear, for which I don't really see an obvious role

Just watch this clip from Slingblade and transpose it to a Starbucks. Pretty good 'thousand yard stare' a couple of times.

Thread Drift with Topical Reading.

Something to add to the Rimas' waiting room online library.

Another Great Adventure in the same Pacific theme, the manuscript is from the University of BC.

The Endeavor, with a page by page viewer of the original writing, or a text file to read.

Journal of a voyage to the South Seas, in his Majesty's ship, the Endeavour - UBC Library Open Collections

From a woman's perspective, this is another in the UBC collection.

I quote.

Manuscript (handwritten) journal of Susannah (Hack) Weynton during her voyage on board the Hudson's Bay Company supply ship Cowlitz (captained by her husband Alexander John Weynton), travelling from London to the Pacific Northwest via Cape Horn and Hawaii, and back to London again. The account dates from August 4, 1849 to March 22, 1851. It contains observations on weather encountered, places visited, and people met, including members of British Columbia's First Nations communities and Governor James Douglas and his family, and contains headings (written vertically) in the margins to guide the reader to specific sections of the account. The account ends before the ship reaches port in England (April 26, 1851) as the writer gives birth on board the ship. The account is followed by the partial journal of Susannah's sister Clarissa Hack, during a voyage on board the ship Mary Ann, travelling from London to Sydney, Australia, in the company of Susannah, Captain Weynton and their child. Clarissa's journal pages date from March 8, 1852 to June 21, 1852, whereas the ship arrived in Sydney on July 9, 1852. Also included in the volume is a handwritten prayer, unsigned but presumably transcribed by one of the two sisters.
