I thoroughly enjoyed the new James Bond movie QOS, and I saw Australia yesterday and enjoyed that too.
Hugh Jackman is such good hero material, he is gorgeous on a horse and well at any other time too!

Uh interesting! Why do so many non-American's end up playing American presidents?

Crowe To Play Clinton?

16 December 2008 11:21 PM, PST

Russell Crowe is reportedly lined up to portray former U.S. President Bill Clinton in a new biopic.

The forthcoming film, entitled The Special Relationship, will focus on Clinton's dealings with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Michael Sheen - who played Blair in 2006's The Queen - is reportedly set to take on the role again for the new movie.

A source tells Britain's Daily Express, "Russell is currently our favourite to play Clinton. He might not initially appear the obvious choice but it's felt he could turn out to be ideal.

"It's understood his involvement could be confirmed early next year."

Thats one more remake I will not see. The only explanation is that they no longer have imagination to create new stories.

They're remaking "Fame". When I was a kid and first saw the original, I loved it, but when I resaw it as an adult I was "eh" about it, though still like a few of the songs.

Debbie Allen, who was in the original as "Lydia", a dance teacher, will play a different character, the principal of the school this time around.

Actually, Russell Crowe as Clinton might be brilliant.

Anthony Hopkins made a pretty good Nixon.

Presidential Biopics.....I would prefer to see a accurate films about Andrew Jackson...lots of controversy.....or Teddy Roosevelt.....Both have been films but usually portrayed way over the top....They deserve better.....How about Biopics films regarding the First Ladies....many of them had a great deal of influence; with their husbands persona.....i.e. Dolly Madison, Abigail Adams, Rachel Jackson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lady Bird Johnson, Jackie Kennedy and on and on......Many were more capable than their husbands.....

I like this idea! Go first ladies! Somewhere in my mother's house I have a book about the mothers of the presidents. Really interesting women.
