    If Gary Hart didn't have to bow out of the presidential race then we might not have had the older Bush as President sincde it's obvious when he ran against Dukakis that it was going to be a slam dunk win for the Republicans since Dukakis didn't stand a chance.

    I love Hughe, couldn't imagine anyone else playing wolverine but "never read a marvel comic, didn't know what a wolverine was" yet gets the part. This is how horrible Hollywood is, there are soooooo many great actors no one has a clue about that never get a shot because Hollywood is really fucked up. This is why actors who have mead it that have big egos are scumbags and actors like Jackman and hemsworth are great because there are 1,000s of other people that were fully capable of getting your franchise and you got lucky. DON'T BE A COCKY D BAG, YOU ARE JUST ANOTHER HUMAN.

    As an Australian I can denounce Andy as much more than a B grade radio disc jockey who together with another guy called Hamish do a lot of horsing around shit, that's about it, some of it is funny a lot of it is try hard, he's more on Howard Stern level fame than Colbert. And I've never heard of Hugh's wife either maybe before my time but I wouldn't have called her famous exactly.

  • Jonathan Berman

    Fans love Stan Lee because they actually know very little about him and how he treated talented artists.. he takes credit for so much more than he actually created... and the real creators remained penniless, so this is why Stan Lee actually sucks.
    I've known this for years but oh well.
