Hitting theaters this weekend is "Men in Black III," the latest installment of a sci-fi comedy franchise that has been box office gold the world over. This one has been mired in whispers of behind-the-scenes crises and near shut-downs, but what matters is what's on screen. And what's on screen is another showcase from film makeup designer Rick Baker.
Baker is seemingly the face of film makeup, his rockstar look and landmark-laden portfolio adding to the mythic image of one of the medium's top tier talents. But Baker is a fan like the rest. His accomplishments in the industry stretch back to second unit work in "Star Wars" (post-production additions on the famous Cantina scene being his big moment) and further.
Oh, and he has 12 Oscar nominations and seven wins to show for himself. Naturally, then, there's plenty of fodder for a new installment of the lists!
