I thought Roy O’Bannon was an endearing role.
I hate to hear it, I think he’s really funny. I liked him in that movie - I forget the name - where he is stranded behind enemy lines in Bosnia?
Prayers going up for his recovery and peace in his life.
Their sources are probably little gray-skinned men from Pluto.
The “Butterscotch Stallion” tried to off himself? Yee gads! (Not my nickname for him. Someone else came up with it.
I like his work and I’m wondering if this isn’t an accident blown out of proportion and reported to the media as such. I like his brother, Luke, better though...hubba hubba.
This guy has everything in the world going for him and he tries to off himself.
Kind of like Curt Cobain. I can’t take all the money, chicks, drugs, attention and the easy life. I think I’ll kill myself.
I never believe a thing they write but this one has legs it seems.
Behind Enemy Lines with Gene Hackman?
Oh, too bad.
That would be - you're gonna hate yourself - Behind Enemy Lines.
he did a great job in that movie - especially next to the great Gene Hackman
Pulling a Terrell Owens?
My wife and I loved his roles in a few movies. I hope he gets his life together soon.
I think it was based on the Scott O’Grady shoot down. It was kind of corny but an entertaining action film.
And he was thought to be the more stable of the brothers.

One day too many of waking up to Courtney Love would make you want to kiss the Winchester too...
A little publicity prior to an upcoming movie release, perhaps?
Which one is he, the little blond or the tall brunette?
“One day too many of waking up to Courtney Love would make you want to kiss the Winchester too...”
Well, I was trying to think of all the good reasons to stay alive. I can’t imagine what Courtney Love looks like first thing in the morning. She looks like a train wreck when she’s all dolled up.
