Who's playing Sister Boom Boom?! I love the idea being bandied about of Marcia Gay Harden playing Dianne Fienstein.

Also, is Scott Sipple going to be portrayed in this film?

They certainly seem to be trying to bring on the pretty. But most of the pretty boys are actually good actors, too, so that's good.

Williams is whoring now. His License To Wed is the worst film of the year. Even my wife, who adores Robin Willimas, was not pleased.

I loved Williams in The World According to Garp. He was muted, understated and appropriately tortured. He and Glenn Close had a great mother-son vibe going on, too. His over-the-top shtick (The Fisher King, Good Morning Vietnam) or his WTF career choices (What Dreams May Come, Bicentennial Man) have effectively made me check out of him as an actor. And, yes, Akash, he was the worst thing about Good Will Hunting. How that won him an Oscar is beyond me. It should've gone to Burt Reynolds or Greg Kinnear that year.

He was the worst thing in Good Will Hunting. And Aladdin is a racist cartoon.

I forgot about Insomnia and One Hour Photo. Williams has a very mixed record - either he's really good or really bad. The past few years he's been in the latter.

I'll cop to thinking that he did a pretty good job in One Hour Photo. I actually thought he deserved the fifth spot that year for that performance.

I also loved the guy who played Williams in Behind the Scenes: The Unauthorized Story of Mork and Mindy. He was fantastic.

I thought I'd bring this up, I found it humorous. :)

Actually, I thought Williams was pretty good in Insomnia (which, by the way, is probably the only film in which I actually enjoyed the Agent of Satan).

Good Will Hunting

I'll admit I enjoyed Death to Smoochy and House of D, but I won't speak for everyone.

Why do I feel like the movie will spend about 80 percent of its running time following Emile Hirsch?
