    You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

      I think I might just pick this up, if for no other reason than to hear Nispel’s commentary.

      Here we fucking go again…

      Conan the Barbarian was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold then became the Terminator. OJ Simpson was considered for the lead role in the Terminator. Instead OJ took the role in The Naked Gun with Leslie Nielson. Leslie Neilson later played Mr. Magoo which also starred Malcolm McDowell. McDowell went on to play Dr. Loomis in Rob Zombie’s Halloween.

      It always comes back to hating on Rob Zombie…You think you’re so fucking slick Steve…

        Kidd, you’re a genius! And here we’ve worked so hard to keep it under wraps.

          I’ve been found out!

            Well this one was just painfully obvious. When the hell will you ever stop bashing Rob Zombie? It’s become a very unhealthy obsession…
