Wouldn't it be a shame if the biggest loser and slowest comeback from this current situation was Hollywood.

Can you imagine the wailing and gnashing of teeth if the elite experts that know what is best for us had to tighten their little belts a little.

Here is something I keep forgetting, because it is fairly well kept in the dark.  There is a charitable organization, that collects funds from fund raisers and direct appeals to the public, that is designed to help actors and actresses who have fallen on tough times.  Wouldn't you think that these people who command high salaries for their work, hold net worth of seven, eight and nine figures, and live in hotels called houses, drive luxury every thing, and own or fly in private jets could pony up to help those who are a part of their own gang?  Especially the stuntmen who sacrifice their bodies and then live in a wheelchair, just to make the pretty boy look tough and manly.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

—Patrick Henry

"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
— Daniel Webster

But Heston trumps De Niro all day long...  I will not watch another De Niro flick again!

Same here, Tim.

Not that he was anywhere near a favorite of mine anyway, I did like a few movies he was in.
De Nutso was one of those guys who somehow (I guess based on all the tough guy roles) got caught up in the hype of the public's skewed opinion that he was somehow just as tough as the roles he played. I've read several commentaries that say in actuality he is a sniveling little guy who is mean to the people who work for him and has a powerful "little man" complex (to the point of wearing platform shoes to look taller).

I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

Isn't that what acting is - Being phony?  They are Professional Phonies.

Good point, Mike.
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington. Letter to Alexander Hamilton, Friday, May 02, 1783

They are paid entertainers. Paid Jesters. Their opinions hold no value what so ever. Those that do allow value to their statements are doomed to literally be lead by fools. Having said that there are a few that do have good sense but they are drummed out and overshadowed by the fools.

What's funny is that 150 years ago, actors were akin to second class citizens considered on the level of gypsies (no offense meant to the Gypsies).
