  1. So funny to see Colbert having an honest belly laugh! Now I want to read more Tolkien…

  2. Leonardo DiCaprio looked VERY uncomfortable in that interview. He typically exudes confidence so much that when he doesn’t it really stands out.

    Top 10 list: A bulletproof vest won’t stop a head-shot Tom.

    Owl ship: some labels would be nice…(or at least include the Silk Spectre II in a limited state of undress!) :-)

  3. Licoln was like a Captain in the military. Doubt he would be a finger on the trigger n00b… 😉

    • Oops, just realized the typo, obviously meant “Lincoln.” 😛

  4. I was thinking the other day that DiCaprio could play Nicolson at a younger age after watching Inception again… Another team up as good as The Departed would be very welcome for me.
