  •  James Lipton Acting Advice for Mitt (10+ / 0-)

    We know Romney isn't very likable and the ha, ha, ha chuckle is kinda creepy. But James Lipton has some advice:

    How to Act Human: Advice for Mitt Romney From Inside the Actors Studio - By James Lipton


    Perhaps it starts with his laugh, a device he employs at odd moments and in a most peculiar way. (The public thinks that crying is the acid test of the actor, but in fact “laughing” is much harder — and Mr. Romney hasn’t mastered it.)

        Listen to his laugh.  It resembles the flat “Ha! Ha! Ha!” that appears in comic-strip dialogue balloons. But worse – far worse – it is mirthless. Mr. Romney expects us to be amused, although he himself is not amused. Freeze the frame, cover the bottom of his face with your hand, and study his eyes. There’s no pleasure there, no amusement. Genuine laughter is triggered only by, and is completely dependent on, shared perception. That’s why we say we “get” a joke.

    He nailed it.

    I think Romney knows something is missing in him. He can't relate so he's compensating and attempting to be "normal" and that laugh is one thing he think normal people do. However, it isn't only that the laugh is weird but that he does it at weird times. He's inauthentic.

    There's a video of Lipton at the link.
