Anyone for Cookies?
Rounders 2 is going to be set in Vegas with Mike having made a living as a pro, now trying to get used to the new style and the online world (that he has to leave the state to play - unless they skip that truth)... just read up on it a little and you will see. No place for KGB in that world, and would take a major stretch to see worm, either. As for Ben, I hope not.
And no, I'm not being too hard on him. The ONLY excuse that he can have is that he has been on film MANY times under the influence. But the amount of coke that John Stamos did or the amount of Heroin that Dane Cook and Dave Matthews did and on and on all seemed to HELP them more than HURT them, so I'm not buying it.
I think he's just absolutely terrible as an actor. Like legitimately doesn't even understand how it all works. Good for him (probably Matt's idea) to do Project Greenlight because it was a good premise to "shine the light" on the bullshit of Hollywood... and then turn around and do exactly what Hollywood always does, except in this case every project was a bust. The world did get Shia LeBouf as a present from all that, so, ya know.
But no, Ben has put together HOURS of footage of him now showing that he may have absolutely no skills whatsoever.
As far as his "accolades" I've said this before and it's in my book--
The first Oscar for writing Good Will Hunting: It is WELL KNOWN that what the two of them wrote was a non-starter and had to be seriously re-written to be what it became. And YET, they gave no credit whatsoever to the person who actually DID the writing when they graciously accepting their Oscars.
Second, Argo. I have no problem with the film, actually, or his performance in it. But, honestly, Blue Ivey could have directed it and put her father in Ben's role and it still would've won.
