And that is quite enough of that. Regardless of your opposing views, there is no cause for you to be mocking, so please step back from that line.
Well he's already admitted he's an elitist, arrogant, self-important, condescending asshole when it comes to this sort of thing in another thread. And since he doesn't think there's anything wrong with that, this isn't going to end well.

Reznor has an Oscar now; that sort of thing can change one's perception of one's self. You think that if Natalie Portman weren't expecting, that she'd still be interested in PP&Z after her Oscar win? Unlikely, I suspect.
Need I point out Ben Kingsley's turns in Thunderbirds and Bloodrayne?

Or Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux?

Or Michael Caine in, for example, Jaws 4?
Notice I said an Oscar "can" change one's way of thinking...

I always liked Michael Caine's comments about Jaws IV in interviews:

No matter. As Caine, 77, tells it, he’s never had a big problem doing a turkey so long as the money’s OK, and he’s playing a supporting role and not the lead. “That way you can't be blamed for its failure,” Caine says.

In 1987, Caine missed the chance to accept his Oscar for Hannah and Her Sisters because he was off filming Jaws 4. “I haven’t seen it, but I did see the house it bought for my mother and it was very beautiful,” he says. “They said here’s a million bucks for a week’s work. It’s fine.”

Re: actors testing for Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Oscar or not there are actors that will do projects simply because they're interested in the script and story. John Malkovitch has done genre films and he's considered one of the top a-list stars. He even has a part in "Dark of the Moon" as Sam's boss, and he signed on to do Spider-Man 4 prior to it being canned.

Which has also earned you an infraction for flaming.

So I get an infraction for calling this out for what it is:

The whole point of that thread is to admit which of your prejudices are irrational. Just because I get a gut reaction doesn't mean I keep believing in it.

Robin McLeavy cast as Honest Abe's mom.

Didn't realize this movie was going to be in 3D until just now...

3D eh? Hell, why not... Dampens my interest, but only slightly.

Re: actors testing for Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

^ Same with me. Normally I'm dead set against seeing movies in 3D but this is one I'll make an exception for.

Re: actors testing for Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

^ I would recommend reading the book first before seeing the film. The book is just pure fun.
