Bad-boy actor Sean Penn says his opposition to a war in Iraq cost him a lucrative movie role - but the film's producer, Steve Bing, calls the claim "extortion." The feud over "Why Men Shouldn't Marry" erupted yesterday amid dueling lawsuits in Los Angeles.

"... an irrational and irresponsible actor."

Doesn't this pretty much describe the leftists?

"supposed to also star Woody Allen."

Gee, if they can get Michael Jackson and Roman Polanski, they've got a hit.

Penn is "an irrational and irresponsible actor."

And a very bad actor, I might add. Can anyone remember a single good performance by this professional fecal mass?

"Irrational and irresponsible" is also the definition of anyone who would marry the incredibly ugly (has anyone seen any unretouched photos?) wh*re of Babylon Madonna.

Penn accuses Bing of "borrowing a page from the dark era of Hollywood blacklisting" by denying him a promised role in the movie, which Bing wrote and was supposed to direct.

Let me think about penn's problem a minute to see if I can help advise him. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

OK here is my advise:

STOP BEING SUCH A WHINING CRYBABY, YOU ALREADY MAKE MORE MONEY THAT THE ADVERAGE AMERICAN. GROW UP, YOUR STAR RIDE IS ON THE DOWN SIDE OF THE CURVE AND SOON PEOPLE WILL SAY "PENN WHO".

Poor guy probably wont be asked to be in the sequel for Saving Private Ryan either. Funny how actions have consequences, why doesnt Sean know that.

Because he's an irresponsible liberal: liberals do not ever want to accept responsibility or be held accountable for their actions.

These types in Hollywood keep trying to place themselves in the role of innocent helpless victims. They keep dragging up the spectre of "blacklisting" as if somebody outside of Bel-aire really cares what they think.

How great it would be if the weasely Europeans boycotted Hollywood movies to protest America's moral stand against the dictator in Iraq.

I'd love to see a money squeeze on producers, directors and of course those "straight-laced" actors.

"Why Men Shouldn't Marry"

I would think he'd be a natural for this, but it should be renamed "Why no one should marry Sean Penn"

He may gave lost a movie role but he probably got a raise and new knee pads from Osama and Saddam. I wonder how many ass whoppings Penn would have got by now if he weren't a "movie star". What a jerk!

Doesn't this idiot realize that this producer would be throwing his money away. Penn made a choice about airing his views and now he doesn't want to pay the price. Anyway here's the list of people I will not pay to see, feel free to add to it.
George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, Madonna, Martin Sheen, most of the idiots on friends, Dustin Hoffman, Susan Sarandon and Mr. Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Jessica Lange, Ed Asner, Eric Roberts, Martin Sheen, Richard Gere, Jeane Garafalo, Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews (Dave Matthews band), Moby(what's a moby anyway?)........

Bill Clinton opened a free concert by the Rolling Stones in Los Angeles last night, in order to raise awareness on global warming, funded by Hollywood producer Steve Bing.

Also the guy who tried to deny that the child he had with Elizabeth Hurley was his. These Democrats are real "stand up guys", huh?

This alone is enough for Penn's lawsuit to get tossed as being frivolous.

Michael Medvied covered this last week. Bing simply wanted a paternity test before he paid. Fair enough, I think.

I can't believe no one has called for the WHAMBULANCE in this thread yet.
Penn and these other actors have at least one thing in common - immaturity.

Show me a written contract. This is not a business of hand shakes.

And tell Penn, his brainless journey caused simple folks like me to avoid anything he does.

Judging from Mr Bing's credits, I can see why Sean Pennis [sic] upset. This guy has Oscar written all over him.

Steve Bing (imdb.com):

Writer - filmography
(2000s) (1990s) (1980s)

Why Men Shouldn't Marry (2004)
Kangaroo Jack (2003) (screenplay) (story)
Every Breath (1993) (written by)
"Married... with Children" (1987) TV Series
Missing in Action 2: The Beginning (1985)
Missing in Action (1984) (characters)

On September 11, 2001 events took place that changed the lives of every American.

Angel's Working Overtime

We couldn't believe the hatred they had, the actions they took made the World so sad.

They thought it would break the American Pride, little did they know we hold it deep inside.

Thinking of all who died made the World so blue, but rest assured, God gave them a job to do.

They have new titles than they had with us, they are now called Angels, nothing less.

They were Angels all along given to you as a gift, now they are everywhere, helping our spirits lift.

An Angel, God is always sending, cause the human heart always needs mending.

They are running around sending Hope, Peace and Love. All of God's messages from above.

I know they will give you a little sign, telling you they are now Angel's Working Overtime.

Mrs. Stacie ©

For anyone experiencing a personal loss; this day will never be far from our thoughts and memories.

This is to honor the brave, gifted and precious lives that were lost.

The World Trade Center

The Pentagon

American Airlines Flt 11

United Airlines Flt 175

United Airlines Flt 93

The Families of all onboard The U.S.S. Cole

Bing simply wanted a paternity test before he paid.

I have no problem with that. I remember some of his comments at the time, however. It was more than "simply" wanting the test.

He may be one level above Penn, but that ain't sayin' much.

Penn is a boob but he is also a fine actor. His work in Sweet and Lowdown, Falcon and the Snowman, At Close Range, State of Grace and Casualties of War is excellent, really above standard. Doesn't change things though, he's still a boob.

Penn has a face and expression that is hard to look at and watch. I like most movies, but he's so disgusting I stay away from anything with him featured. I'll bet I'm not alone.
