Please tell me that James Earl Jones is known for something other than being Darth Vader's voice!

Ever seen "The Great White Hope" (JEJ was nominated for an Oscar for that)
"The Hunt for Red October?"
"Cry the Beloved Country?"
The voice of Mustafa in "Lion King"
He's won two Tonys, one for "Fences" a bunch of Obies (one for Othello), and an Emmy for "Gabriel's Fire."

Not to mention, "This is CNN...."

Amazing (possibly un)True Fact: James Earl Jones was also the voice of Pebbles Flintstone.

"Pathologist says Anna Nicole's son on anti-depressants; photojournalist claims he fathered baby."

I honestly thought this said that a photojournalist was claiming that Anna Nicole's son fathered her baby.

Weirder, this was not that strange to me.

James Earl Jones was also one of the B-52 flight crew in Dr Strangelove

Dang it, Brent, you beat me to it! The first time I saw that movie, I was like, hey, wait, is that - wow, yes, I think it is.

honestly that doesn't sound like either jack or meg. especially since after white blood cells jack started speaking in a sort of wierd faux southern accent. and meg's voice is softer than that one. you can hear them in interviews on youtube, or in the flick "cigarettes and coffee"

So, it's not that Alec defended Scientology, as much as it's that he slammed Islam. Way to go, geniuses who write headlines.
