‘D-list’? I think you’re being kind. Of course, ‘D’ could stand for ‘demented’…
How about the headline D-List Actors Diss D-List Actor, Al Franken, For Senate
Wow. I kind of feel sorry for John Ratzenberger, but the others are just embarrassing. What, was Corey Haim not available? Thanks guys– I’m donating another $20 to Al’s campaign!
Every time I see Stephen Baldwin’s face, the word “D’oh” immediately comes to mind.
Franken as a commanding lead doesn’t he?
Wow, I completely forgot that those people were still alive. Good for them.
Who the hell is Robert Davi?
So now Davi works in the sound department?
It’s a joke right???!!!
It’s a shame seeing my favorite actor from Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence reduced to this.
Conservation of energy and resources at work. You don’t dispatch A-Listers to combat the campaign of a D-Lister like Franken. You shouldn’t even sent a B-Lister or C-Lister.
Just keeping it D for D.
Al Franken to hold office? Excuse me — what are his credentials? Oh yeah, he’s a celebrity! Ahhh, what is the world coming to? Next thing you know we’ll be electing a new “leader of the free world” who has no experience in leadership…oops…well, at least he’s famous and photgenic. And so gosh darn eloquent. I love America — forget about substance – it’s all about style, image and appearance.
Do NOT dis ANY of the Maniac Cop series. Bob Davi could wipe the floor with these other actors’ resumes. And probably does.
He ruled in Die Hard. He crushed in The Taking of Beverly Hills. And he was acceptable in Cops and Robbersons.
This is just another role, and once again, like a true pro, he’s killing it.
“Conservation of energy and resources at work. You don’t dispatch A-Listers to combat the campaign of a D-Lister like Franken. You shouldn’t even sent a B-Lister or C-Lister.”
Really? Then I guess Norm Coleman should be wiping the floor with him.
Hey, at least Franken has a great chance at winning something.
Ahhh, I get it. So because it’s not “A-lister” Leonardo DiCaprio and his ilk whining about the environment, these people’s opinion is irrelevant because of their lack of influence in Hollywood. It’s wonderful to see the degree to which Hollywood elites simply cannot resist taking jabs at the few people who disagree with them. Precisely what letter “list” do you have to be on before stating your opinions is acceptable if you’re not a liberal?
Awfully nice of Victoria Jackson to take a break in the middle of her own movie’s premiere to say a few words.
Was this an anti-Al Franken ad? It didn’t even make any sense.
to Robert Derringer:
tell me again about reagan’s credentials? oh wait, a western movie star? GREAT! glad to see the supposed father of the modern “conservative” movement was judged the same way as franken is now. the republican party in this country is a joke. GET OVER IT.
What were George Murphy’s qualifications to be a senator?
He was a second rate song & dance man.
What were Fred Grandy’s qualifications to be a House member?
He played a two bit flunky of “The Love Boat”!
What are Mary Bono’s qualifications to be a House member?
She was married to an equally unqualified House member that was so stupid he got himself killed on a ski slope.
What were Reagan’s qualifications to be governor or president?
He was the hero’s best friend in a few dozen bad movies & got to say “Where’s the rest of me?” in another.
And last, but certainly not least, what were Bush Jr.’s qualifications to be governor or president?
He had none, he’s the drunken, drugged out son of another president, the grandson of a senator that dealt with the Nazi’s, really, you can look it up. He was given “gentleman’s C’s” at both Yale & Harvard, where he got in as a legacy, not by scoring high on his SAT’s, although he probably scored some drugs & was high when he took the exam.
Does Victoria Jackson realize she has no friggin’ career; much less a life (oops! I’m sorry she WAS born again)? And what few reasonable amounts of dialogue she ever spouted during her thankfully brief stint on SNL may actually have come from the pen of Al Franken? The Republican party is scraping. Stephen Baldwin is so lame it’s unbelievable; this wannabe Alec sounds like he could use a little remedial instruction in Politics 101.
So they should diss that imbecile Al Franken who declared ever so grandly that “Catholicism is dead”. Yeah. He said that shit.
Ratzenberger winked at us.
Is Ratzenberger the new Sarah Palin?
Were Joe Estevez and Wings Hauser not available?
John Ratzenberger is a cool guy. The people at Pixar have used him in every film they’ve made. I would vote for him over Franken any day.
Get ready for the Senator Al Franken Decade.
