Cuco Sanchez - wait, was that Sean Penn?: For some, the sign of a great actor is the ability to appear in parts which make him or her unrecognizable. In his portrait of gay Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas, painter-turned-filmmaker Julian Schnabel cast great actors for small parts. As Dennis Lim points out in The Village Voice, "The director's weakness for flashy cameos is balanced by his good sense to enlist only professional scene stealers: Sean Penn as a smirking gold-toothed cart driver, and Johnny Depp, who appears as transvestite bombshell Bon Bon."
