Bad boys

I'm catching up with some (very) old episodes of General Hospital.

Luke Spencer has always been a little bit fond of one of the Quatermaine kids, a wanna-be movie director named Dylan.

As a nick-name, Luke has always liked calling Dylan "Young Spielberg".

Recently, Dylan had a brief love affair with Luke's young daughter Lulu. And this relationship has led to conflict between Dylan and Lulu.

I had been thinking of what name Luke could now use for Dylan. "Spielberg" is too nice, it needs to be some sort of bad-boy director. I was thinking "Coppolla", or "Scorcese", or going back further, "Zanuck".

Then, just as I was pondering this, Luke calls Dylan, "Young Polanski."

Hah! Perfect.
