They don't make them like they used to

"The question's not indiscreet. But the answer is!"

Noticed on IMDB that Ewan McGregor is 34 today. I first saw him in the dreadful Scottish drug movie, Trainspotting. That was written by champagne socialist Irvine Welsh, who has made millions writing lousy books and movies about the underclass from the comfort of one of a number of luxury homes he owns around the world.



So anyway Ewan McGregor started out in Trainspotting by shaving his head and playing a heroin addict.

Fast forward a couple of years and he's doing a really lousy Alec Guinness impersonation in the catastrophically appalling The Fanny Menace. He reprised his role in the moronic Attack of the Clothes. And we are shortly to be treated to - please God - the final insult, Star Wars Episode III: The Revenge of the Shit. Recently the smug bastard did a round the world motorbike trip with a friend of his. No doubt they had a fifty strong entourage following a few miles behind in a convoy of SUVs, just in case they needed a manicure or a chat with their agents on the Satphone.

So enough of this pathetic, jumped up little twat.

How about a real actor.

Lee Van Cleef for example.



Now there is a guy you don't mess about with. Van Cleef could kick McGregor's ass, with one hand tied behind his back.
