@Yolanda: Oh dear, you just took the words right off my mouth XD …..You’re not the only one, honey, I do too. =) He’s too sexy and gorgeous. Hmmmmm I liked the Planet of the Apes (the end kinda sucked though….I mean, what was the point of the whole movie if in the end the apes have taken over the Earth itself, what could possibly be humans then! lol) hmmm but I’m still looking forward to watching this prequel to see how it turns out to be. I don’t like this girl, Pinto, there’s something about her that annoys the hell out of me. Like, I feel a bad vide haha. She’s hiding her game or something. Anyway!!! @lee: I agree with you though!

Well, they won’t have to put too much makeup on him to make him look like an ape. He used to look good a couple of years ago, but he’s a mess now. Looks like he needs a shower an a good night sleep.
