    Nicole’s a little older compared to the others in the cast.

    I love Alex! It’s great news!

    Still “subtly” criticizing Nicole every chance you get, I see.
    Nicole is 48, James Tupper is 50, Laura Dern is 49, Adam Scott is 42, Jeffrey Nordling is 53, Alexander Skarsgard is 39, Reese Witherspoon is 40.
    So I don’t understand your ridiculous comment. How is Nicole “a little older compared to the others in the cast”? Why didn’t you say “James Tupper is a little older compared to the others in the cast”? Or “Jeffrey Nordling is a little older compared to the others in the cast”?
    No wait, I think I know why…

    It is because of extreme jealousy when it comes to Nicole. Nicole is suppose to be one of the nicest, kindest, loving, not to mention beautiful, actresses going today.
