Clooney's jealousy is sad. Even Omega Man was better film than any of Clooney's clap-trap....Odd, I can't think of any of Clooney's movies, yet I'll remember Mr. Heston's work forever.

Charlton Heston did Ben Hur when Clooney was doing his diapers.

As a matter of fact, Clooney never progressed.

Clooney is a no talent hack who was lucky to get out of guest starring on 'The Facts of Life' on TV.

In Hollywood even a "whiff of decency" will get the attention of the filthmeisters. Wonderful people like Robert Conrad, Connie Stevens, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., Michael Moriarty, and others haven't been seen as much as they should have been. Of course if you have unwavering commitment to your principles, you say macht nichts...

"Omega Man" was a great movie.

Hollywood sluts and nuts always strike back. Looney Clooney will too.

Of course he'll strike back from the safety of hiding behind his agent's skirt, lacking backbone and all.

Go for it O'Reilly, he's earned whatever you can dump on him.

Will Looney Clooney strike back?

When asked for a comment about the Clooney tirade, a Heston spokesperson said............

"Sometimes class skips a generation."

Fox News Bill O Reilly has declared war on actor/director George Clooney over the latters sarcastic remark about Charlton Heston and his suffering from Alzheimers.

Normally, I would advise Bill not to "enter a battle of wits with an unarmed man," but Clooney the Clown needs a little "cutting down to size."

BTW, yes, Omega Man was great, but it should be noted that it was a remake of a movie starring the late great Vincent Price called "The Last Man on Earth."

George Clooney is a looney!

Movies are movies, actors are actors, and why do they even have the opportunity to make these statements. Why do we have to suffer their ignorance, and be expected to regard their personal opinions as pertinent?

I detest Baba Striesand, Alec Baldwin, Meryl Steep, Julia Roberts (the list goes on and on), yet I have no problem watching the movies they have made.

It's like the Southern Baptists wanting all to boycott Disneyland; well if you boycott one company/product, where do you draw the line. You could probably come up with a reason to boycott most companies/products.

BTW...have you seen this movie? Clooney is great in this!

It sounds like Clooney's comments were really off-base. I'm glad that someone in the media is man enough to call him out on it. Way to go, Bill!! Can you imagine the softballs that Larry King would throw him?

Yeah, I tried watching that crap. Didn't make it through.
Ever notice that in all that guy's movies, the man's face is on the screen about 95% of the time?

I heard something today on talk radio that certainly sheds some light on why Hollyweird is so leftist.

Only 30% of the profits from movies comes from the USofA. A full 70% of their profits comes from overseas, France, Germany, other leftist nations. Explains alot doesn't it.

And he looks pretty sickened by the thought. What does that say about ol' Babs-the Toon isn't known for being too selective.

With the exception of From Dusk Till Dawn, a superb (and underrated) vampire flick partly written by Quentin Tarantino (who's also in it). It's very worth watching, although I must warn you, it's almost as loud as The Matrix.

On a related note, I give props to Tarantino for having the courage to play unlikable characters in his own films. Most writer/directors who appear in their own creations tend to glorify themselves, or at least pretty themselves up a great deal. QT does neither.

And he writes AMAZING dialogue.
