He's okay. I've always thought Luke was better, though.

He wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, he was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of his. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, he doesn't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, he respects that. He cares desperately about what he does. Does he know what product he's selling? No. Does he know what he's doing today? No. But he's there, and he's gonna give it his best shot.

That second thing.
Like Wil Farrel his 15 minutes are pretty much up.

Hmmm. I'm going to go with..."who honestly gives a fark."

Lando Lincoln: Hmmm. I'm going to go with..."who honestly gives a fark."

Damn it, I wanted to say something similar, but with a +1 vulgarity modifier.

He was better when he and his brother were writing, but they became run of the mill comedic actors before too long.

His nose looks like a penis and he has good hair. I think we are stuck with him for quite a while.

I would say...'B', Chuck, an irritating frat pack as-been.

We also would have accepted 'barely talented pretty-boy no one will ever believe is an adult. Even when he's 60.'

I always thought it was c) annoying D-bag that sold his soul to the devil so he could be a movie star

You know, I feel really bad for Jackie Chan. Not only does he perform his own stunts, but he had to act along side two of the most annoying people in the biz:

I like Owen, but then again I'm enough of a Wes Anderson fan I tried to convince myself Darjeeling Limited was actually good.

You said 'wet shirt don't break', not 'piss shirt bend boar'.

He also has a tendency to commit suicide.
2011-02-25 09:05:18 PM  
Maybe it's because he's not an arrogant cockpouch... Maybe it's because he's not a typical 'pretty-boy' hollywood duplicate of 10 others... or maybe it's because he's a local guy, but I like him. He's always great in his interviews, and I actually enjoy awkward comedy.
2011-02-25 09:12:57 PM  
I always liked him as an actor.

What is this shiat doing under the Geek tab?
2011-02-25 10:39:49 PM  
I can't get past his hugely deformed nose. Whenever he's on screen it's all I can do to not stare at that damned thing the whole time. Seriously, Owen, what the hell happened there? Did you fall asleep in high school with your nose in the biding your math book too many times? Did you simply use the "gym teacher's kleenex" one too many times and it stuck that way? Or is that nose a prosthetic?

When using the term "frat pack", is there really a need to tack on "also-ran"?

Kar98: What is this shiat doing under the Geek tab?

So very much this.

I glanced over Geek tab after work as I usually do. I always enjoy the low volume greenlit ratio on Geek, I like the topics on the whole, I'm into the computer and science(fi) stuff.

Did a dog head-tilt when I saw this here, but figured I was just overtired on a Friday and must have been looking in wrong place.

Back for my 'round midnight fark dose, and this article is truly here. How? Why? What's the inside joke? His beak sufficing as the formal literal definition of circus freak?

/not a Wes Anderson fan
//truly indifferent about Own Wilson

Own Wilson sucks a huge dong in the shape of that phallic nose of his. I hate that guy and that same weinery, annoying character he plays in every. single. film.

Arrived for butterscotch cowboy references, leaving indifferent.
