Sean Penn set to report from Cuba
UK Press Association ^ | 10/26/09 | Staff

Posted on 10/26/2009 5:23:25 PM PDT by La Enchiladita

Sean Penn is exercising his journalistic skill, reporting from inside Cuba.

The Oscar winner has embarked on a short trip to the island on assignment for Vanity Fair and The Huffington Post.

Rumours have circulated that he might interview Fidel Castro.

But his rep told E! News that there were no plans to meet up with the ailing former leader.

If he were to, it would not be the first such encounter.

In 2005, his family held a lengthy meeting with Castro whilst holidaying in Cuba.

... Past overseas assignments for the actor turned journalist include stints in Iraq, Iran and Venezuela.

Who? Is he the guy that makes the tennis balls?

I have purposely added “Sean” to each tennis ball I have. Makes me feel good every time I hit one, even if it’s out of bounds.

“In 2005, his family held a lengthy meeting with Castro whilst holidaying in Cuba.”

And I’m just *sure* Penn stayed in one of the hotels that average Cubans use and not say, one of those “foreigners with hard currency only” places that have the best food, drink, facilities, etc.

Penn’s a very good actor, but boy howdee is he an idiot.

After watching “Into the wild,” I’m convinced Sean Penn has brain damage.

Is he going to be making a career change from an actor to a reporter? Is that because 1)he consistently flops at the box office, 2)he is trying to get noticed by the heads of commieland for a script, 3)or he couldn’t get a visa to Cuba as an actor/regular citizen so he calls himself a reporter to circumvent the system. Regardless, if he likes it so much, seriously, why doesn’t he move there?

Even funnier how that doesn’t seem to trouble American leftists that claim to be “liberals.”

Enchi, you hot tamale, you know I will support free trade in salsa across all political and geographical boundaries. ;^)

Medium and mild varieties excepted.

Funnier still is how so many Cubans do report from Miami and are uniformly critical of Cuba.

I’m sure Sean will be allowed to speak to those who disagree with Castro/sarc.

Penn did his best self-role in playing a dope-smoking retarded teen in Ridgemont. Let him dwell there.

Penn is unique in that he’s equally ugly on both the inside and the outside.

Penn is BMW ugly.

He’s Helen Thomas ugly.

He’s Olberman ugly.
