Brick

Co5 Throw one at me if you want, hash head. I've got all five senses and I slept last night, that puts me six up on the lot of you.

-- Brendan Frye in Brick

Saw this one Sunday night.  Really liked it.  I know almost nothing about film noir but suspect this was a good introduction.  Also, I won't tell you where you've seen the star before -- figure that one out on your own or never mind.

Third Rock From The Sun, of course :-)

Well done, Pinky! Bonus: if I'd instead hinted at "playing opposite Larisa Oleynik" what would you have replied?

I wouldn't have replied - because I don't know who Larisa Oleynik is. But I recognized Joseph Somebody Somebody from Third Rock.

Larisa Oleynik played the younger sister to Julia Stiles' character in "Ten Things I Hate About You." Joseph played Larisa's wannabee boyfriend.

The title of this posting reminds me of the punchline to a certain joke (i.e., "What's red and bad for your teeth?")
