Default Coen Bros. love Mount Gay?

Anybody who has seen Burn After Reading may have caught John Malkovich drinking a Rum & Coke with Mt Gay Eclipse. Good call!

Almost makes me want to go deep into other Coen Brother movies for rum hints. (The Eclipse was not labeled, so no endorsement)

Yeah I noticed that as well, but kind of forgot about it by the end of the movie (after all that happens).

My favorite part is when he's making some drink or another, mis-measures, and tries to put the extra back in the bottle.

Or maybe the part when he is ransacking his estranged wife's house and the first thing he does is clean out the liquor cabinet.

Or maybe the opening scene when they tell Osborn Cox he is being fired for having a Drinking problem, "Drinking Problem? You're a Mormon! Compared to you, we all have a drinking problem!"

It might have been brought up before, but I seem to recall hearing that James Bond drinks Mount Gay.

I think it was Casino Royale Mr. Bond ordered a Mt Gay and Soda rather than his typical martini!

Way to go JB!

Was that the David Nivens, Orsen Welles, young Woody Allen version of Casino Royale? Or the later remake? And by the the way...It's Sir James.

That was a great line, I think I need to quote that once or twice... Of course, Malkovich has slightly better delivery.

Twas the 2006 version of Casino Royale. Not the Niven version, though I'm sure he would have enjoyed a fine Mount Gay.
