Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.

    Finally, an actress hot enough to play a comic book hero’s girlfriend; the lovely Ms. Mendes notwithstanding. A bit young and blonde for the older, brunette Carol Ferris, but she should do a good job…and at last look spectacular doing it.

      Ah but they’re having Ryan Reynolds playing Hal so it evens out on the age thing. I’m sure they’re gonna dye her hair. And I’m sure she’ll look stunning as a brunette. Now they really ned to cast Hugo Weaving as Sinestro and call it a day.

    Agreed with the Hugo Weaving bit. That would be the best thing since sliced bread.

      Thanks. I watch GL:First Flight alot and Victor Garber (Alias) did an amazing job voicing the character, but all I could think of was Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith and how perfect he’d be. The look, the arrogance. PERFECT!!
