    He playedsomewhat of a similar type rolein "Conspiracy Theory," which is one of those movies I've found myself watching multiple times when I've come across it. Julia Roberts is good in it, and Patrick Stewart plays the rogue CIA villain very well.Edited by: Don Wassall

    Gary Busey LOL. He really does rule the screen when he gets on it. I even watch "DC Cab" sometimes.

    Rooker was good in "Mississippi Burning" as well. I also like R.Lee Ermey (also in "MS Burning") and Sonny Landham (I know he's mostly "injun"), but he's a good bad guy & also a paleocon (was on Political Cesspool once). I've been told my voice is similar to Sonny's...deep/bass with southern drawl![​IMG]

    Wahlberg is 100% practicing Roman Catholic. Here's a quick background on him:

    Grew up in a rough Boston neighborhood and his parents were also struggling actors. He actually did a little time for some racially motivated violence (I'm not kidding, Google it if you like). He was a rapper of all things for a while, I'm sure you all remember that song "Good Vibrations" that came out in like 1992 from the group "Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch", right? Well that was him. Not one of his finest moments, but it got him in the door. He and Joaquin Phoenix have thier own production company now that has produced such great movies as "We Own the Night" and "The Yards". Excellent films in my opinion. Just about everyone involved in these films is strictly goyem. Nothing but great acting.

    I literally just clicked on here to see if anybody named Mark Walberg. [​IMG] I was just talking about how they should make another Dirty Harry movie, but we've become way too PC and most actors would never touch it today. But thought, well, maybe Marky Mark would and he'd definitely kick ass. A more energetic, youthful version.Edited by: Fightingtowin
