    Good lord! Poor Billy Wilder is spinning in his grave.

    I suppose Affleck could reprise the wooden performance of Tyrone Power quite adequately.

    Who is going to reprise the great performances of the great Charles Laughton as the lawyer and the sexy Marlene Dietrich as the femme fatale wife.

    Maybe Anthony Hopkins, Michael Gambon, is Albert Finney still alive, Ian McNeice (Bart in Doc Martin) and Angelina Jolie.

    This is a terrible picture of him.

    That’s actually what he looks like now. I think it’s karma from cheating.

    All of his projects are vanity projects. The man is smarmy.

    Still love Good Will Hunting, and The Town though.
