You do know it was sarcastic, right?
No, I saw that it was sarcasm on the article’s part.....just assumed the producers portrayed him as religious, as he suggested...which had me spouting off in an nanosecond. Probably best if I don’t watch it.
You couldn’t watch it if you tried. It’s not a real movie.
Keep your hands to yourself ping!
Unretired & anxiously awaiting 4:30pm.
