At least we've still got Todd Haynes, guys. I'm hoping he'll sign on to direct this project I'm working on. It's called, I Spit On Your Foam. It's a horror movie based loosely on my years as a barista here in Portland. Bolton, interested a writing gig?

Actually, Mr. Connery just yelled out the line. There was little I could do to stop him. That man is crazy strong and can snap your neck like a chicken bone.

Georgie's right. In fact, Jessa Crispin should direct the Starbucks movie. Leave poor Gus out of it!

Oh, Brimmley... silly anonymous poster! No one's keeping score here. If you think the director of "Finding Forrester" had nothing to do with approving that line of dialogue, then you've clearly never spoken to or read an interview by a professional screenwriter. Their stories of being rewritten, chopped up, and overruled by directors are legendary. By merely allowing Connery to bellow that line, Gus is guilty of an unpardonable criminal offense perpetrated against all film lovers. Even though I love to belt that line out at every opportunity...

Oh - and i forgot to say. I now have a HUGE crush on Jessa Crispin! She should decide ALL the tournaments of all the books in the world!!!
