Cool

We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.

Hmm tough decision [In reply to] Can't Post

For me it would have to be James Avery (Philip Banks from fresh prince of bel-air). I know he was tall around 6'5'' but he was so wide i think he could pull it off. Plus i just love his character in fresh prince.

Samuel L. Jackson... [In reply to] Can't Post

And it's not even close! LIP

Seriously though, why would one want to? Given what this tale is supposed to reflect, casting Africans (wherever they live now), Chinese, any other ethnicity doesn't do much for the tale, and not sure what it adds to the tellers either.

That would be one, tough, ruttin' Dwarf, baby!
