He's a Jaguar Shark, an American Sniper... (52.10)

Wags: I’ve had quite a challenge this week to put together words, ordinary words, to describe the most extraordinary man I ever met. A man as steely as a Roman centurion, cooler than Jean-Paul Belmondo. He's a jaguar shark, an American Sniper, every decision in the space of seven breaths. If you cross him, he'll put a fucking ding in your universe.

Jean-Paul Belmondo (born 9 April 1933) is a French actor initially associated with the New Wave of the 1960s and one of the biggest French film stars of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. His best known credits include Breathless (1960) and That Man from Rio (1964).

The Jaguar Shark is a mythic fictional creature from the movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, a 2004 American comedy-drama directed, co-written, and co-produced by Wes Anderson. It is Anderson's fourth feature-length film and was released in the United States on December 25, 2004. It was written by Anderson and Noah Baumbach and was filmed in and around Naples, Ponza, and the Italian Riviera. The film stars Bill Murray as the eponymous Steve Zissou, an eccentric oceanographer who sets out to exact revenge on the jaguar shark that ate his partner Esteban.

American Sniper is a 2014 American biographical war drama film directed by Clint Eastwood and written by Jason Hall. It is loosely based on the memoir American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History (2012) by Chris Kyle, with Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice. The film follows the life of Kyle, who became the deadliest marksman in U.S. military history with 255 kills from four tours in the Iraq War, 160 of which were officially confirmed by the Department of Defense. While Kyle was celebrated for his military successes, his tours of duty took a heavy toll on his personal and family life.
