Loved "Rome", that's where I first saw Kevin as well. I couldn't believe he's only a few weeks older then I am, we were both born in Aug 1973 if IMDB is to be believed. I hope he'll be on "Grey's Anatomy" more! I was disappointed "Journeyman" didn't last longer.

Caught Val Kilmer in the film Thunderheart on TV last night. Ages since I've seen this one and I enjoyed it all over again.

I just finished a brand 2007 new release of Sergi's Bodrov's "Mongol"....very impressive, beautifull photography....I'm sure there are inaccuracies, but I was impressed that they took their time in developing the story of Temudjin (Genghis Khan).... and they did not portray him as a monster....Temudjin starts his journey at the age of 9 through to the age of 30.... 2 hours and 5 minutes long.... Great actors... Subtitiles....Part one of a planned trilogy.....So much better than "Alexander the Great"....P.S. no special effects.....

I watched Anne of a Thousand Days. I had never seen it before, and thought it was OK in some parts but dragged in others. The one problem I had with the DVD is that it didnt have a sceen selection. I was in the middle of the movie one night, paused it..the power went out..and thenI had to fast foward to my spot again. Annoying.

I saw Appaloosa over the weekend with Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen. An excellent character driven western with good supporting shoot-out action.

I'm looking forward to seeing it...Harris and Mortensen were good choices for Virgil and Hitch.....I read Appaloosa and it's sequel Redemption....fast and entertaining reads...Robert Parker is more famous for his Spenser detective series....Viggo is such versatile actor...Good guy...Bad guy...Hunk...Sensitive New age Guy...Cowboy or Viking/Celtic helmet....not sure about Kilts?...BTW He just turned 50....

Oh Chuck, I would seriously love to see Viggo in a kilt! Judging by his totally exposed physique in the Eastern Promises knife fight scene, I've no doubt he could pull it off and then some!! ;)

50? I think he'll be of those Newman or Connery-esque guys that just keep looking better as they get older.

And - I sure hope Ed Harris decides to direct the sequel to Appaloosa. I'd go see it in a heartbeat.

Viggo was soooo Russian in "Eastern Promises" a riveting film.....That knife fight really creeped me out...being a manly man and totally exposed like that in a knife fight Wow!...Bottom line.... he is a very authentic actor....BTW...He is the perfect Strider/Aragorn.....I agree his well chiseled good looks will age well....SC is still the best Bond ever....
