At a certain point, don't you have to call BS on some of this?

Maybe not. I'll freely admit that I'm too young to have seen Langella in his prime. To me, he's the old guy in the movies.

The man willingly had sexual relations with Whoopi Goldberg. Everything he says is invalid.

Pretty much came in for this. I can't take anything he says seriously while knowing that.

Give him a few years, put him in a jar, call him The Face of Boo.

Most of the people mentioned in the article are dead, so I'm going to call B.S. on a lot of this. Frankie needs to sell some books. Just another trashy tell-all.

After years and years of farking the best pussy the world had to offer, he got tired and decided to try out of his comfort zone.

For example, in the comic WANTED, the main character's father was a sleazebag who killed, raped and maimed. Every 5 years he took a sabbatical year where he stopped farking women and went gay. After a whole year of farking sweaty men, which was disgusting to him, he had a newfound appreciation of female poontang and his sex drive went through the roof.

I guess Langella was doing the same.

Well, he tried, but Dave stopped him.

I liked Langella as Dracula. The movie wasn't very good, but, he played the part with memorable intensity. Most "Draculas" since then have been pale shadows to his performance.

To be fair Whoopi had a reputation for being able to suck the chrome off a golf ball while pulling it through a straw. Having spent some time as a techie in a few theaters, yes, you get hit on by everyone all the time. If you are so inclined, saying yes to either sex is not all that hard to believe happening.

I concur. He also was the best part of Unknown,despite Liam Neeson's earnest performance and January Jones's absence of one.

Going by the article, sounds like he's a male slut. Not that such a thing is at all unusual in Hollywood.

Meh. Everything I needed to know about pulling tail I learned from Klaus Kinkis' "All I Need Is Love."

I remember my mom talking about the Broadway production of Dracula. She said Langella was mesmerizing and that all the women could talk about during the intermission was how amazing he was. My guess is that most of what he is writing about is true. My mom said there were women there that had been to the play numerous times because they were so entranced with him.

We may not see it today, but apparently he had it then.

Getting ass while working in "The Theater" is about as hard as pouring water out of a boot with the instructions printed on the heel.

Glad he got some.

There is a video somewhere of Frank being confronted by an older conquest. She demands he know her name and he deflects with such magesty.

That is the true nature of Broadway.

Came in just bring up that him and the guy from Back To The Future were the only things that made that movie awesome.

/I was also gonna make an offhanded joke about him killing Mozart to see if anyone was paying attention. Which I guess I just did.
//He wasn't bad in Superman Returns either. He was no Jackie Cooper. Hell, he wasn't even Lane Smith but he did some great stuff with what he had to work with.

"Playa" is a geological term for, IIRC, a dried up lake. When we got to that term in my geology class, everyone under 30 laughed, everyone from 30 to 40 sighed, and everyone older than that just looked lost.

The movie was s**t, but I'll be damned if his Skeletor isn't one of THE best movie villains I've ever seen! :-)

Who is Meg Foster Alex!
Except for the eye color she reminds me of a pre blimp Kirstie Ally
Meg dropped top a few times in the movies, not bad but not spectacular.
