P.D.P. or Pulling a Donald Pleasance is: When an Actor (espically an old fart, ex. Stellan Skarsgard) Overacts to the extent of showing true genius. This Actor demands applause and attention and definitely has at least one house in Northern Ireland. He/she is an entertainer of the highest order, and will stop at nothing to win an Academy Award (even if it means bashing Marlee Matlin in the skull with a rusty lead pipe).
Jon Hurt P.D.P (Pulled a Donald Pleasance). He didn't win the Academy Award for his brilliant performance as a Harvard Professor/Gladiator (so he bashed Marlee Matlin in the skull with a rusty lead pipe)
