Reckless: The Sequel: Michael Kitchen composite 1Reckless: The Sequel: Michael Kitchen composite 2

My top 20 Michael Kitchen roles:

2. Richard Crane in Reckless (1997) and Reckless: The Sequel (1998)

From the absurdly comical to the heartbreakingly tender, MK demonstrates his incredible acting range playing an arrogant surgeon who will do almost anything to prevent his wife from leaving him for another man.

Much of that fun is the work of Michael Kitchen, doing another turn as the abject and conniving Dr. Richard Crane… The mix of misery and resolve that Michael Kitchen brings to this character is altogether wonderful to see. – The Wall Street Journal, Apr. 12, 1999

This plug for Reckless written by Hikari on an Amazon.com forum is perfection.

My top 20 Michael Kitchen roles:

9. Berkeley Cole in Out of Africa (1985)

Meryl Streep was one lucky actress playing opposite MK and Robert Redford amidst the beauty of Africa.

Meryl Streep thought her leading man was perfect, but one wonders how much better the movie might have been had Michael Kitchen been cast in the role of Denys Finch Hatton.
