A whole film? Sounds a bit desperate to me. Hes hardly charismatic anyway, well, based on what I've seen.

I disagree whole heartedly with all the snide remarks and the negative comments. This chap was in the right place at the right time. Poeple should applaud him I certianly do.

I wish you all the best. May you make pots of money for yourself.

I am not in the least bit invious. I am happy for people when they have opportunities knocking on their door and they simple sieze them.. as they should.

Is this a multi-million pound deal as I understand it? I hope this man lands many more big money deals to add to you list of deals.

To the mouners, I say this get a life..learn to acquire a balance view on life. Take up yoga to help you achieve that sense of realism.

As much as I like reading The Sun, they do take things over the top some times.

Today's article on U.S. Army recruiting was misleading in that it implied that the other services were having similar "problems" with having to lower standards or lie to recruit (Interestingly, The Army will likely meet their goals as they will recruit over 80k this year). The Marine Corps in particular has done extremely well with both recruiting and retention of Marines that are presently on active duty. All this in spite of the so implied "impact" of the war... . .There are still plenty of brave young men willing to step into the breach. Thank God.
