While Ezratrumpet once edited Wikipedia often, and was once a bane of many WikiTrolls, he grew weary of endless WikiBattles, and now limits his editing to punctuation, oddly constructed sentences, and other such oddities.

He has yet to receive a Pulitzer Prize, win a popular election, or make a discovery of such significance as to merit a Wikipedia article of his own.

Nonetheless, he remains ambitious and optimistic.

Lord Olivier 6 Allan Warren.jpg

Laurence Olivier (1907–1989) was an English actor and director who, along with his contemporaries Ralph Richardson, Peggy Ashcroft and John Gielgud, dominated the British stage of the mid-20th century. He also played more than fifty roles in a long film career. In 1930 he had a West End success in Noël Coward's Private Lives. In the 1940s, together with Richardson and John Burrell, Olivier was the co-director of the Old Vic, building it into a highly respected company. From 1963 to 1973 he was the founding director of Britain's National Theatre, running a resident company that fostered many future stars. His own parts there included the title role in Othello (1965) and Shylock in The Merchant of Venice (1970). Among Olivier's films are Wuthering Heights (1939), Rebecca (1940), and a trilogy of Shakespeare films as actor-director: Henry V (1944), Hamlet (1948), and Richard III (1955). His later films included The Shoes of the Fisherman (1968), Sleuth (1972), Marathon Man (1976), and The Boys from Brazil (1978). (Full article...)
