Oh, James McAvoy, you are so hot....and yet, I really didn't need to know that.

Gandalf takes up kickboxing?

Balrog: RAWRRRR!
Gandalf: You shall not pass!
(Gandalf drops his staff and roundhouse-kicks the Balrog into the abyss.)
Frodo: ...When did Chuck Norris join the Fellowship?
Aragorn: No fair, I'm supposed to be the manliest one here!

Producer Paul! Yay!

We should have known about Marilyn's photo spread inclinations. Could've over-night shipped her some LiLo leggings, STAT.

Mini-Me has a rather (ahem) inflated idea of his propper nacked worth, don't ee. $20M???

Mouse, regarding your question from last evening: Some Lizard Comandos go commando while others wear their velcro-crotched LiLo leggings (with optional knee pads) and still others prefer the photo spread.

Surely someone's been able to confirm that Larry King is a cyborg by now. (He's actually not drinking coffee on the show; he's ingesting a combination of motor oil and ethanol that powers his backup fuel cells. You know, in case his main power source- the light display behind him- ever fails.)

Staying anon for this...one saturday morning while swimming laps in my community pool, there was an older gentleman swimming a couple of lanes over. After a couple of laps I started to notice he had a little something sticking out of this shorts, after a couple more laps I realized what that little something was. So speaking from experience, men should always wear a speedo, keep things where they're supposed to be. though I've always wondered if he really couldn't feel it dangling or if he was doing it on purpose, either way, the lifeguard had a little chat with him and he left.

Skinny and pale are perfectly fine attributes. I won't put words in Anne-Marie's mouth, but I suspect she would agree.

Coming a bit late to the party on Speedos, but I think they should be a controlled substance. You know, only professionals (or anyone with the appropriate body) should be allowed to purchase and wear them - after filling out numerous forms in triplicate.

I came to that conclusion after living in Hawaii for 3 years. You could always tell when it was tourist season by the large number of large, hairy Eastern European men in Speedos in Waikiki. I didn't dare take my young, impressionable children to the beach there lest it damage their innocent little psyches.
