    His gf Madalina Ghenea should get a part in it too. Would love to see them burn up the screen together in a hot love scene.

    Wow, I love Egyptian mythology. I did a long stretch of time reading all kinds of stuff. It’s all very compelling, secretive and intriguing. Just like Gerry!
    We see those tricky loophole words, “in talks” but hope this gets the green light. This would be fun! It’s different, interesting, and of course we’ll get to see him tanned and half naked! Nice cast and hopefully will take place outside the United States. I’m all for it! Yay!! (goalie arms)

    Oh please, they chose him not because he’s a good actor but because they like him personally…

    Love my job, since I’ve been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I’m making it online(Click on menu Home)

    @GFW: It’s not that I don’t feel happy for him. It’s just a personal opinion. He’s getting too many comments these days. He’s been on films since long and nobody noticed him till he worked with Angelina Jolie on Tomb Rider I think.
    Many people still go to see the movies because of their actors and not because of the main plot.

    GFW Says:

    You have no idea what you’re talking about. Where in on the meetings? No. So cap the negativity.
    It’s good news. And even better if it pans out! I love period pieces. And the film industry could use a transfusion right about….

    GFW Says:

    Correction. That should read, “Were you in on the meetings?”
    You can’t back up your statement, so why say it? What’s your beef with Butler? Why can’t you be happy for him? Sounds like a good story!

    wow Nikolaj and GB together in a film like that – Yes Thank you very much indeed … Would love to see one of Denmark’s finest actors in a role like this and GB as his counterpart and enemy … Crossing my fingers :-)

    Some interesting photo selections spanning recent to back a few years. He’s so handsome in all of them.
    Wish him luck with this. He’s been keepin’ all this under wraps, the lug. That can’t be easy! He’s sprung a big surprise on us! (goalie arms)
    who has a lot of Egyptian sterling jewelry from when she went through her phase but none of the 24K cartouche stuff, which included my name (beaming)
