It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

I was flip flopping between the two parts. Apparently I failed on both fronts.

Hey, What can I say, I like what I like.

Has a "Name your top 5 actors to avoid" poll ever been done?
Because if there's one guy that just makes every character a car wreck for me is Matthew McConaughey. That voice is my kryptonite.

Wahey there is love from someone else for Milla Jovovich. I adore that woman although her acting skill is not what I like most about her. whistle

My favourite actors of all time are probably Marlon Brando and Paul Newman. Both very very handsome men with a LOT of charisma and break-the-mould acting abilities that set them apart massively. Brando in Streetcar Named Desire was stunning and even when he was "washed up and overweight" with lines being fed to him in Apocalypse Now he was hauntingly excellent.

My top LIVING actors would be...

Cillian Murphy
Gary Oldman
Liam Neeson
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Tom Hardy

It's purely coincidence that four of them are in the latest Batman and that all of them have been in a Christopher Nolan Batman film. The casting just made me more excited for the films! I also believe Batman did not represent their best roles.
