    can't find it online, but there's a story out there about Burt Reynolds and Rip Torn as struggling actors.

    Reynolds of course is the more confident, if less talented, one. he talks Torn into going to an audition with him.
    Torn kills, but walks out. Burt gets him to come back, but Torn will only take the part if Burt gets one, too. pretty ballsy.

    it's a deal - and the rest is history, for both.

    RIP Rutger Hauer.

    Actor known for Blade Runner.

    He was in Ladyhawke, which was a favorite of my college freinds. We must have watched that movie at least a dozen times. It wasn't great, but it was "cult" hit for us.

    i have epiphanies like that all the time. for example i was watching a basketball game today and realized pom poms are like a pair of tits. there's 2 of them. they're round. they shake. women play with them. thus instead of having two, cheerleaders have four boobs.

    Saw him against Dusty Rhodes in Tulsa, OK many, many years ago. Harley was an awesome pro wrestler. And from what I read on the Internet, someone you didn't want to mess with.
