THE Leap

How did we leap here?

From: The Ice Storm 

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)

Henry Czerny had a small role in The Ice Storm as another attendee of the key party. We leap with him to a completely different film –  The A-Team where he plays Director McCready.

Where are we leaping to?

Composer: Alan Silvestri

To: Back To The Future

Chosen by:
Crew (Glenn)
Film (Scott)

Alan Silvestri is probably best known for his classic score for Back To The Future, music that is instantly recognisable as from that trilogy when you hear it. But Silvestri has had a very prolific career composing music for many many films over the last 40+ years. Glenn couldn’t resist leaping with him when he noticed he was the composer for The A-Team.
