Yeah, I agree Irish. When everyone thinks those metro ladies from entourage are uber cool somethings wrong. What happened to Holden, Lancaster, Eastwood, Mcqueen, Jim Brown, Bronson, and others?

I’m completely in the dark here. Any hints?

Read today’s Strong Words.

And i’d have to agree with James Woods on this one. Name one young actor who is the epitome of a T-Man? Quickly, the clock is ticking. cue the Jeopardy music

The strong words.

Woods is an idiot because he is shitting on his own countrymen. Fuck em.

Nothing against Aussies, they seem real nice.

One of the reasons I like “That 70s Show” is because Red is not a whiny Ray Romano-Seinfeld pussy type, he’s an Alpha Male guy.

Of course, that show is supposed to take place in the 70s.

Playing a cool guy and playing a tough guy are two COMPLETELY different things. Dont confuse the two.

I’m not sure that saying what he said makes him an idiot. He’s criticizing American male actors, not soldiers. If someone deserves to be shit upon, why blame the shitter?

That said, James Woods has never been the kind of guy to fill those roles himself, so it’s kind of the pot calling the kettle black. If Clint Eastwood, Deniro, Pacino, et al is making this statement, I think it comes off better, imo.

Did anyone mention Carl Weathers as a Hollywood tough guy? Fred Dreyer (aka Hunter)?

So, speaking his opinion and what some would perceive as the truth is “shitting on his countrymen?”

Ok, what if I said all murderers in this country were complete human scum. Would that be also be “shitting on my countrymen?”

‘Name one young actor who is the epitome of a T-Man?’

The Rock
Vin Diesel
John Cena (sp?) He has a movie coming out.

Damnit, you have to bring up freakin’ Vin Diesel didn’t you? I fuggin’ can’t stand that guy. I won’t accept him as a valid answer. Bale, yeah, he was sweet in Batman returns. Whalberg is a good call but the guy was Marky Mark…MARKY MARK! Tyrese, well, whatever, he’s Tyrese. Statham is English, not American.
