After watching the clip from Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson that Erik posted, I couldn't help but think of the fictionalized Hunter S. Thompson on the big screen. The first thing that comes to mind, of course, is Johnny Depp's unforgettable performance in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. With Depp teamed with Benicio del Toro, it was darkly comedic gonzo heaven, like the clip above. I could watch the two of them get high and hallucinate all day.
But, we've got to remember that it's not the only Gonzo/Duke pairing out there. Before Johnny and Benicio, there was Peter Boyle and Bill Murray in Where the Buffalo Roam. It's a touch goofier, but it's cool to see Murray mimic someone else (and do a decent job at it), and it's always great to see Peter Boyle on the big screen. You can check out a clip from that flick after the jump.
Meanwhile, trivia time.
