Again, sad to lose a person, but just not an entertainer I could watch without producing the squirm factor.

Yeah, but there are many good actors out there to replace them. :up

My Favourites at the moment are Chris Pratt, Ryan Reynolds and Robert Downey Jnr.

I know who I would rather be watching..... :cg
