That’s too bad, I enjoyed his work. He was quite good in “Bully.” RIP.

I haven’t been to Drudge today, but I’m going to go there now and I’m going to bet it’s the top story.

Did you ever see “The Jacket”? It was shockingly good. One of the few really decent movies made in the last 4-5 years.

“The kid from Terminator 2?”

That was Edward Furlong, but he is “troubled” too... Was kept out of Terminator 3 for Lindsey-Lohan-type reasons.

Is “troubled” newspeak for “drug addled loser”?

Nick Stahl is a great actor and I was glad to see him in T3.

Damn. He was pretty good in Pulp Fiction. (He played "The Gimp" I'm pretty sure.)
