`MANDY PATINKIN, HOLLA!’
Twitter went nuts, with many people suggesting that this saying needs to become a meme, and soon.
As the pop-culture site (at)Gawker put it: “`Mandy Patinkin, holla’ is the new Angelina Jolie’s leg.” From New York Magazine’s (at)Vulture site: “`Mandy Patinkin, holla’ is the best thank-you ever.” And from NPR’s (at)nprmonkeysee: “If the Internet doesn’t remix `Mandy Patinkin, holla’ by tomorrow morning, it is a failure.”
If someone can figure out a way to incorporate Patinkin’s famous line from “The Princess Bride” _ “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, prepare to die” _ then the Internet might truly be worthwhile after all.
`HOMELAND’ STAR JOKES ABOUT PLAYING HOUSE
Married actor Damian Lewis joked to reporters that he might be doing some extra celebrating with “Homeland” co-star Claire Danes, who is also married and came to the Emmys with a baby bump.
“We’re going away to a romantic island together,” the red-headed British actor joked. “When that baby is ginger you guys are going to have a field day.”
The comment may have gotten some members of the press too excited, one of whom asked Danes a few moments later how she viewed the win in light of giving birth.
