FACT: Colm Meaney was Oliver Stone's first choice to play Alexander The Great in "Alexander", however Meaney realised the film would be a flop and thus Stone went with Dublin's number two actor - Colin Farrell instead

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

FACT: Jonathan Frakes was asked to grow a beard in the break between seasons one and two of TNG so that he wouldn't appear so womanly in scenes with Colm Meaney. When the producers realized this ploy had failed, They shifted the Planned Riker-Keiko love storyline to O'Brien, and Colm Meaney became a fixture of the series. To this day, Jonathan Frakes maintains his trademark beard out of hatred for Colm Meaney.

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

FACT: Colm Meaney was originally slated to appear in Star Trek 09 but turned it down because he didn't want to play second fiddle to some "two-bit kid fresh off his moma's tits". They brought in Leonard Nemoy instead.

Are you implying that Colm Meaney hasn't, in fact, done these things?
