Well, I suppose it was inevitable.... they are now making a movie about BOB DYLAN. Seven different actors will portray the Living Legend, each one marking a time in his life. Actors so far lined up: Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Richard Gere, Charlotte Gainsburg and Julianne Moore. Yes, you read correctly - Blanchet, Gainsburg and Moore will play Bob Dylan. Heath Ledger is the newest addition as he stepped in during the 11th hour to replace Colin Ferrell. Jesus Christ, what is wrong with these people??!!!! Is this a tribute movie or a hate movie?

ONE - the casting across the board is ABYSSMALLY ATROCIOUS! Perhaps Christain Bale could do it, but the others?

TWO - DON'T make a movie about Bob Dylan, you chode monkeys!! Just watch the documentaries "No Direction Home" or "Don't Look Back". Or better yet, go see him in concert! He still tours and is magnificent!!
*this one is dedicated to Ms. Otter! heh

you know jimmy, no one can say "abyssmally atrocious" like you. it's magical.

i would agree, the movie sounds like a big dookieshooter waste of money.

i hope them making the movie doesn't kill bob in the process. look what happened with Ray, after all.

I thought you weren't supposed to make movies about big stars until after they died.

man, hasn't his life clock has ticked over three times already?

Speaking of movies about the living... creepy as they may be - it doesn't mean they'll die immediately after the film is released... I mean, Muhammad Ali had a movie, and he's still with us... well... mostly... then there's The Notorious Bettie Page.

I love the term dookieshooter. It has now been added to my regular vocabulary.
