Exclusive: Jane Fonda Joins Aaron Sorkin's HBO Series (And You Won't Believe Who She's Playing)

Aaron Sorkin’s new HBO series about the cable news biz is generating a pretty massive headline of its own: Two-time Oscar winner Jane Fonda is joining the cast in a recurring role that is sure to have conspiracy theorists buzzing, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The still-untitled hour-long drama — which is being unofficially referred to as Newsroom — is set behind the scenes at a fictional cable news network and centers on an anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) and their boss (Law & Order‘s Sam Waterston).

Fonda, in her first major television gig, will play Leona Lansing, the CEO of cable news network’s parent company. She’s a titan and her corporate concerns often conflict with the reporting of the news outlet she owns.

Hmm…. the character sounds suspiciously like a female version of Fonda’s ex-husband, media tycoon and CNN founder Ted Turner. Her name also name checks two legendary business women, ex-Paramount boss Sherry Lansing and the late Leona Helmsley.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    That is awesome news about Fonda joining the Sorkin show…but what is she wearing in that photo? Is that really a sequined seafoam-green animal print? If so, then any character named “Leona Lansing” should definitely wear it.

      Hanoi Jane should be serving prison time
      or have her leg blown off and arm shreaded to
      pieces by a north vietnamise artillery shell
      I doubt the PC Liberal media won’t post this

      • pjdjmj says:

        Hanoi Jane aka Communist whore should have been hung for treason long ago. Sorkin is obviously should have his citizenship revoked. They probably won’t allow this either.

        • Anti-Whacko says:

          To regular readers–As I suspected, the neo-Nazi, racist, right-wing whackos are being linked over here from Drudgereport. Thise mental midgets smell up any site they visit. Try to ignore them–They’ll all die of alcohol poisoning or chirrosis of the liver at some point in the near future.

          • oldenuf2remember says:

            Spoken like a true paragon of liberal compassion and
            open-mindedness. Where were you when Hanoi Jane visited the
            Hanoi Hilton and, when the POWs passed her their Social
            Security numbers in the hope that she’d pass them on to the
            US government so their families would know they were alive, she
            handed them over to the prison authorities who proceeded to
            increase the beatings and torture in retaliation?
            I’m waiting for an answer. Where were you?
            How many Americans died as a result of her betrayal?
            Their blood is on her hands.

          • david5300 says:

            truely spoken like a true liberal/ enemy comatant/ useful idiot.
            Someone who would send your son or daughter to defend his freedoms while he mocks their sacrifice and protests them if and when they return home.
            The same ilk as the westboro bastist cabal.

          • Laura says:

All you libs can do is throw stones, because you can’t live up to what you’ve done to our country. America is getting wise to you.

          • Califemme says:

            Hey libtard, most neo-nazi-racist-rightwing-whackos are teetotalers, duh. If you’re gonna insult people, get yer facts straight, sucka.

          • Gail says:

            I read the names that you called the other people that you disagreed with.

            Ok hippy, why don’t you go find your mommy & daddy, if you have one that will admit to their mistake, and/or go to the Feds you socialist/commi, self centered pig, & have the feds or commune, you belong to & get your diapers changed. Then go find a city square to smoke your dope & make a cross to “social justice to humanity” & prop yourself up there. (Of course taking your regular drug breaks, forget about baths, & don’t forget, get some free food handouts from the people who work). Oh, but make sure you take the day off to get your food stamps or unemployment!!!

            Okay, there. That sounds about as immature and stupid as your comments.

            Evidently the previous posters KNOW A LOT MORE than you have an idea about “Hanoi Jane”. I was a child back then but from what I have read, seen and reports that I have heard the previous posters are correct. My impression of Jane Fonda was that she was a privileged actress who was not emotionally healthy (I listened to her autobiography/book-out of her own mouth). I think that she got swept up with hearing only one side of the story, peer pressure, insecurity, not having good emotional family support, and “wanting to go with the crowd” to her that was her family that she thought gave her emotional support. She made a COMPLETE FOOL of herself. I have not kept up with her events since, but if I was her, I would formally & publicly apologize to the Vietnam Vets & their families. She should try to do philanthropic events, donate time for not just veterans but the Vietnam Veterans, to TRY to compensate for the idiocy & ugliness that she did back then.

            Why, oh, why, do people think that other people want to be in a war. They are protecting our country so that we CAN have the freedom of having an opinion and that we CAN vote. But above all the right to being safe. A lot of soldiers in the past were drafted. Or voluntarily signed up, due to country pride and the love for it. The soldiers did not make arrangements to have a war. Blame the president and the others that control this. And another thing, have hippies and/or the anti war people, ever ONCE considered that there are secrets not divulged to the American public about security threats, and threats of war, actions needed to prevent war. And also I know that if there are humans involved, yes corruption can be behind things, but with so many other people to be checked with? The president is not the ONLY ONE who makes the decision of war. I could go on etc, etc., etc.

            If you negate these statements then you need to leave our country & go to another country to appreciate ours. You will be happier not being here and we will be happier that you are not here.

            It sounds to me as if you are sheltered, bored, and a spoiled, “entitled” American that has not had to face the real dangers of what the Veterans had to face. You sound like an armchair quarterback. Will you have a temper tantrum and soil your diapers if God does not ask for your opinion on judgment day?

            I will not be looking for a response. Just think about my opinions and my experiences on this. We can agree to disagree but when I see a libtard be so hypocritical, I give up. I will give an opinion or how I see things. My job is not to change your mind. I AM trying to understand people with your views, but I just can’t. I just cannot reason it out.

          • Cynde Frizzell says:

            Thank God.

        • catlover says:

          Hanoi Jane is the reason why i do not have a father. he was killed in the withdraw from Hanoi. that communist whore should be tried and hung. or that the special forces have her , they know what to do to a traitor

          • MoonAngelwings says:

            Wow , didn’t know Fonda served in Vietnam. I wonder how many of these crap Conservatives remember the Vietnam war, or just repeating BS from Reilly, Beck etc.My Relatives served in Vietnam, when asked about Fonda all 4 say ,Love her body .

          • Califemme says:

            Ignore this a$$hat: Comment by MoonAngelwings – December 15, 2011 10:56 AM PST

            These numbers mean NOTHING to MoonBatwings:

            Estimates of the number of Vietnamese soldiers and civilians killed vary from less than one million to more than three million. Some 200,000–300,000 Cambodians, 20,000–200,000 Laotians,and 58,220 U.S. service members also died in the conflict. (source: Wiki)

      • pjdjmj says:

        Anyone (Sorkin) who would employ Hanoi Jane aka NVA/VC whore should be hung for treason along with her.

        • Laura says:

          What have you done for the world lately?

          • Bruce says:

            Hi Laura:
            Before u debunk those stories about Jane Fonda being urban legend, know this. I am a retired airline pilot for a major airline. Before I got hired, I was a C-141 aircraft commander for the Air Force, and I was lucky enough to be one of the 141 drivers chosen to fly some of the Vietnam POW’s home at the end of the war. During the long return flight, I went in the back of the airplane to welcome the GI’s home. I will never forget talking to one of the guys who told me he had his fingernails pulled out by the bad guys. Seems Jane Fonda was on her way over to Hanoi, and the North Vietnamese wanted our prisoners to tell her how well they had been treated, and he would not agree to do that, so they pulled his fingernails and thumbnails out. He showed me his hands. All he wanted to do was to confront her with his personal story, but as I heard later, she refused to meet him, so his wish never came true. Just wanted u to know her actions are NOT urban legend.

          • Joe from Arkansas says:

            Bruce- Thank you for your service. Thank you for standing for the truth in the face of the most aggressive propaganda machine ever contrived by power mad liberals. Also know that it is too late for laura. Indoctrinated in a left wing indoctrination center, sometimes called “public schools”, she is proof that once a fool has been crated by the indoctrination system, they willbe easily fooled. The current crop of “students” are being taught that God is an suburban legend.

        • Rick Balsavage says:

          Boy! do I agree! What is the definition of treason? Jane Fonda!

      • RMF says:

        Hanoi jane will never, in this lifetime,be in my house.

        • Laura says:

          And I’m sure she wouldn’t want to be in a rat-infested slum, which is probably where someone of your ilk would live.

          • fatherboop says:

            Jane Fonda should be in jail for treason to the US.

          • mintaka says:

            Oh, get off it Laura. I expect you are too young to even know how she got the name of Hanoi Jane.. it’s public knowledge that she fully earned it along with the anger held toward her even today.
            As for your effort at trying to insult those who know what they are talking about… we all consider the source from whence it comes!

          • Geechee says:

      • FADUTA says:

        Time to call and cancel HBO!

      • Robert DeBeaux says:

        Since the success or failure or any TV venture is dependent on ratings, I sugest that EVERYONE include this link in ALL of their contact lists to NOT watch (or Boycott) this show.
        I am doing so at this moment.
        Jane Fonda is a traitor. This is FACT. Her popularity depends on the news and media glossing over anything of import.
        Goggle her and discover the personification of treason in the living flesh.

        • Gwen says:

          “Goggle” her? It’s so hard to take some of these posts seriously when the posters can’t even handle basic spelling and grammar. Jane Fonda has apologized many times for her actions/words during the Vietnam War, and she is certainly not the only person who was against our involvement. If you are going to cry “treason” for every person who disagrees with the actions of our government and speaks out about that disagreement, then I think there are a lot of people who would fall under that definition.

          • Robert Bushard says:

            Ahhh… Gwen,

            You said “Jane Fonda has apologized many times for her actions/words during the Vietnam War, and she is certainly not the only person who was against our involvement.”

            First, yes, many were apposed BUT FEW visited the enemy Capital, praised them and aided them. Even Bill Clinton did not go to Hanoi to protest. He went to Moscow to get his oder. That is correct: ODER.

            Second, as far as I care to recall, Jane, The Cummunist ****, Fonda only apologized for being PHOTOGRAPHED on the anti-aircraft gun while joking with enemy soldiers. She did not apologize for her TREASON, only for the photograph.

            Finally I have a story to share with you:

            In the early 80’s while on a business trip in Charlotte, NC, I visited their local mall one day on a lunch break. It was after a customer meeting and I was wearing a three piece suit. In the mall I happened across a Sam Goody store where a life size card board image of Hanoi Jane advertizing her new workout video “Wretch Out with Jane” was displayed.

            I approached the sign and spit right on her face.

            The store manager was standing right there and raised a ruckus and soon I had a security guard holding my arm and questioning me.

            I told the guard I am a Vietnam Veteran and what Hanoi Jane had done in Hanoi during the war as an explanation as to why I had spit on her image. The security guard released me and then HE spit on the advertisement. The store manager just shrugged his shoulders and walked back into the store

            I expect that when she goes to here final reward in hell, I will visit her grave to relieve myself.

      • tpreitzel says:

        Get over it! People makes mistakes, even grave mistakes. People change. During this Christmas season, try an act of forgiveness. By forgiveness, I don’t mean injustice. Mercy without justice is a joke. Justice without mercy is harsh. With very few exceptions, can you honestly think of more than a handful of people within the military-industrial and political establishment that shouldn’t be tried for treason?

        • James Howell says:

          Get over it? “Mistakes” were made? The woman is a GD’d traitor! She is directly responsible for men being tortured in the Hanoi Hilton. She was photographed sitting at the controls of an anti-aircraft gun in Hanoi saying she hoped one of those “criminals,” i.e., American aircraft, would fly over so she could shoot at it.

          Forgiveness? Not a bloody chance. Justice? The only justice is her suffering the torments handed out by her buddies running the Hanoi HIlton. I’ve hated Hanoi Jane with such passion and for such a long time, the emotion has probably become part of my genetic code.

          It will be a cold day in Hades before that…that…person appears on my TV screen. CBS can go to he11 also.

          • James Howell says:

            Crap, I said “CBS” could go to he11. I meant “HBO.”

            Although, now I think on it, CBS going to he11 is not that bad an idea.

          • Laura says:

            You’ve hated her for a long time? Buddy, you’ve got major problems.

          • James Howell says:


            Yep, a long, long time–almost 40 years; and I will take that hate with me to the grave. This country was almost torn asunder because of that damned war and Hanoi Jane’s actions, and her Liberal defenders, took us even closer to the brink.

            My hatred of Hanoi Jane is a “major problem?” Nah, not really. Hating her is easy.

        • concernedgranny says:

          Don’t tell me to “Get over it”. Hanoi Jane is not one bit sorry for what she did. Like a true lib, she has justified each and every one of her actions which WERE treasonous. What she did is unforgivable simply because no human being with feelings could ever have done those things. Now she wants all of us to watch her new show so she can make lots of money? She’s a selfish pig.

          • Scanner says:

            I hate to tell you this but she HAS apologized for her trip to North Vietnam and very much regrets her decision to do so. I saw her say just that on TV years ago. There are a lot of urban myths about her so maybe it is time to just let it go. You don’t have to watch her show but to waste so much energy hating anyone for so long is really pathetic. I am no fan of her politics but she has the right to believe what she will. This was 40 years ago, just let it go.

          • Scanner says:

            I’ve done a little more research and maybe she does deserve more contempt than I said before. I guess she only regrets the picture on the AA gun not the propaganda broadcast etc. Sorry.

        • mintaka says:

          I wonder if those poor souls who saw an American woman at thier prisons and believed she would at least let their loved ones at home know they were still alive.. how great was their disappointment to later learn there would be no message to their families. Not to mention the physical pain they endured afterwards. Forgiveness? Not for a long, long time will I forgive her!

        • Joe from Arkansas says:

          What would have possessed you to comment on something of which you are totally ignorant? You have all of the mechanics of mercy, foregiveness, contrition, confession of treason, atonement wrong. Justice, for the convict (Until liberals achieved absolute control over our system) was to be “hard” but “fair.” For two generations, democrats have meted out their version of “justice” based largely upon party affiliation or the ability to provide an “indulgence” (Democrats call them political contributions. The rest of us know them as bribes.) Witness Eric Holder for illegally trying to restrict that state’s drawing of congressional districts, while Arkansas democrats have disenfranchised the majority of the 1st District (Elected the first republican in 150 years) so that they can restore the corruption that had been rampant since the Civil War.

      Jane Fonda is a beautiful woman. But Aaron Sorkin is making a huge mistake using her in this role. Ms. Fonda is someone I do not watch nor would I ever recommend a show that she was associated with or was a cast member of.

      I hope she finds a profession where she can use her talents, maybe someting in the cleaning or housekeeping industry.

      HBO wake up Ms. Fonda is a no start for any TV Production or Movie, she needs to be in another line of work and never again in the movies or tv.

    • rashid says:

      Most of what HBO does is very good, so I look forward to it. Not producing for ad breaks makes such a positive difference in story flow. I just love HBO productions, can’t wait for Luck. Treme’ is fantastic, as are most of the rest this season. Jane’s a pro, she’ll be fine. And to her detractors, that was a long time ago.

      • JonSEAZ says:

        During the Vietnam War, this woman acted directly against the interests of her country, against the interests of her nation’s soldiers, and most directly and personally against American POWs being held by the enemy with whom she fraternized. A great many American veterans of that era clearly remember what Jane Fonda did, forever consider her a traitorous bitch, and never will forgive her for so long as they draw a breath. That is just the way it is, son.

        • Anti-Whacko says:

          No, not quite. She went behind enemy lines to show what the American army was doing to a rural people in the name of Anti-Communism. Please explain how that worked against the interests of the military men and women serving in the Viet Nam theatre. Did she fire shots at Americans? Did she raise money for the Viet Cong? No. Don’t get so caught up in your crazy rhetoric that you ignore basic facts.

          • WilliamPenn says:

            Wake up! Along with John Kerry, Fonda is honored in a Communist Party Vietnam War Museum in Hanoi for assisting the communist victory, immediately after which millions of Vietnamese men, women, and children were slaughtered by the communists. She was wined and dined by the staff of the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” POW prison and the garbage was fed to the US military prisoners. She ratted out prisoners who had slipped her notes complaining of torture and they were severely beaten. One was BEATEN TO DEATH! Fonda chanted “Death to the USA” while manning a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. Hopefully, one day, a Vietnam veteran will put a bullet in her head.

          • concernedgranny says:

            I don’t know about you but I was around in the 60’s and remember how our soldiers were spit on when they returned home. I remember this POS taking the side of the enemy and betraying our soldiers. That was a dark time in American history. Hanoi Jane was a traitor and I, for one, can never forget what she did. Obviously and thankfully, I’m not exactly alone in my feelings. God Bless America!

          • Anti-Sheeple says:

            I find this post of yours hilarious! I noticed that your first post is nothing but name calling other readers/posters. Please stop with your infantile, hypocritical name calling, it only proves what your posts project, you’re obviously a mental midget and a liberal bully.

          • James Howell says:

            Wait, Anti-Whacko, you accuse others of name-calling yet you use that same tactic in your post at 5:25 p.m., PST.

            I quote you: “the neo-Nazi, racist, right-wing whackos”. Looks like name-calling to me.

            Then of course, being a compassionate person, as all liberals are, you rejoice in the possibility that “They’ll all die of alcohol poisoning or chirrosis of the liver at some point in the near future.”

            You should consider changing your screen name; “Anti-Whacko” definitely does not fit.

        • Ryan says:

          You say liberal as if that’s an insult. Liberal means open minded. You should try it sometime, instead of holding onto 30 year grudges that does no one any good.

          I wasn’t until after the Vietnam War was long over, so I can’t really attest to all that she did or didn’t do, but dear god, it doesn’t matter anymore. Move on.

          • concernedgranny says:

            The word “liberal” has evolved from meaning open-minded to “anything goes” and “gimme, gimme, gimme”. There are still plenty of people around from the 60’s that remember the ‘make love not war’ sentiment of that time. Once we are all gone, this may very well be forgotten. But not now…it’s important that we remember. And since we still feel so strongly about this after all these years, you know it MUST have been really horrible. Hanoi Jane will always be a traitor to this great country and therefore, an enemy of mine.

          • James Howell says:

            concernedgranny is correct, twice: (1) “liberal” has indeed evolved from open-minded to tax-the-rich-so-I-don’t-have-to-work and (2) the sheer hatred shown on this blog page for Hanoi Jane should be a clue to the oh-so-smart liberals: the Viet Nam War days were a very bad time for us and Hanoi Jane’s actions, and her liberal defenders, just threw gasoline on the fire. My father’s generation had the Japanese and the Germans and World War 2; my generation had Hanoi Jane, the Viet Cong, and American citizens, a.k.a., liberals, defending both. (Let’s not forget the politicians, on both sides of the fence, using the war dead to garner votes.)

      • oldenuf2remember says:

        “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or, in adhering to their Enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” (Constitution of the United States of America, Art. III, Sec. 3, Par. 1)

        Exactly which part of “giving them aid and comfort” is too
        difficult for you to grasp?

        • Anti-Whacko says:

          Doing a press junket to show abuse and mismanagement by the US military is not “giving aide and comfort.” Its not financially supporting enemies of the United States–Under your strange definition of giving “aide and comfort” would include reporting on US military attacks on Afghan citizens (men, women, and children) or reporting on military failures of any sort (think attacks on the US military under both Bush and Clinton). Think about your premises, and consider, their logical conclusions.

          I’ve read much about what happened there and understand why you folk turn the events to fit your politics. But I don’t see it that way. I see it as an attempt to expose similarities between people and try to evoke some compassion on both sides. The act of a diplomat. I can also see how you will disagree with my views. It’s not surprising. But it seems to always have your side exposing vile hatred and an inability to reason.

      Me too! I’m so pissed at these Drudgeport trolls posting on this site that I just signed up for HBO that I just signed up for HBO at home and the weekend place. I’ll keep the subscription as long as this show is on.

        Yes, but think of all the episodes of “Hoarders”, “Biggest Loser” and “Nancy Grace” you’re going to miss.

    Good reason to cancel HBO.

      Interesting–I just signed up for HBO with Comcast at home and the weekend place. That’s the American way–Let’s let our pocketbooks do the talking.

I hope that one day we can elect a real socialist and take your second home for the people who don’t even have one home of their own due to the selfishness of people such as yourself. It’s disgraceful. What’s funny is that you truly think you’re better than those you decry as right wing. You’re all pigs.

  9. TexaSooner says:

    Highlighting Hanoi Jane seems one way to make the project commercially nonviable. She’s still toxic 40 years later.

    • Anti-Whacko says:

      “Poison”? Monster-in-Law did $83 million in the US. What revenues have you generated since 2005 (the movie’s release date)?

      • James Howell says:

        83 million dollars? Isn’t that low? I don’t keep track of such trivialities but my random reading over the years indicates movies are successes if they gross a heck of a lot more. Hollywood probably considers $83 million a pittance. Hell, it probably cost more than that to make the dross.

Look what Jane Fonda did might have been bad, personally I’m Australian and born after 1980 so according to some people I shouldn’t comment, but I don’t want to live in a world where Aaron Sorkin is banned from releasing his amazing work.

      • James Howell says:

        I don’t believe Sorkin should be banned; he can associate with whom he pleases as far as I’m concerned. What has me confused is the importance lkg22 places on a movie and a TV show. An Oscar because of a movie about an asinine on-line community is important? An Emmy is important because of some TV show? Christ on a crutch, just how inane can some people be?

          I’m sorry if my inanity personally offended you in some way James Howell.

    funny how the people still holding this against her are the same people willing to forgive Newt his many transgressions. Same way the people who are so zealous to protect their 2nd amendment rights are dismissive of those exercising their 1st amendment ones. “a two-minute lapse of sanity that will haunt me forever … But the photo exists, delivering its message regardless of what I was doing or feeling. I carry this heavy in my heart. I have apologized numerous times for any pain I may have caused servicemen and their families because of this photograph. It was never my intention to cause harm” – Jane Fonda

    • AnybodybutBHO says:

      That the problem with liberals, the mistakes they make cost us American lives. Her admitted stupidity caused the deaths, pain and suffering of countless American soldiers. Just like today, thanks Jimmy Moron Carter and Bill Bluedress Clinton. Really? Newts transgressions really? Why is it when a democrat transgresses it’s a badge of honor and when a republican does its hell to pay? And comparing Hanoi Jane to Newt intellectually or on experience and accomplishments is like comparing a Yugo to a Ferrari, just not gonna win.

      • Ryan says:

        I’m pretty sure going into a war we never belonged in is what caused us so many American lives, but people like you don’t seem so concerned about facts.

It’s easier to blame some Hollywood liberal for all the problems of the war instead of the people who propagated and funded it, right?

        Along with John Kerry, Fonda is honored in a Communist Party Vietnam War Museum in Hanoi for assisting the communist victory, immediately after which millions of Vietnamese men, women, and children were slaughtered by the communists. She was wined and dined by the staff of the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” POW prison and the garbage was fed to the US military prisoners. She ratted out prisoners who had slipped her notes complaining of torture and they were severely beaten. One was BEATEN TO DEATH! Fonda chanted “Death to the USA” while manning a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. Hopefully, one day, a Vietnam veteran will put a bullet in her head. But you go ahead and watch her show.

Do you ever write on blogs about them and what they did to our reputation in the world for torturing and admitting they did??? Shouldn’t they be in the Hague for war crimes.

    • Chelsea says:

      I think that TVLine should shut this crapfest of a comments section down, but I had to comment on your “facts”. President Bush did not “take us to war on lies”. As far as Iraq goes, several of our allies had what they believed to be reliable and accurate intelligence indicated that Saddam Hussein had WMDs. We couldn’t ignore intelligence from multiple trusted sources. Secondly, the number of soldiers that have actually committed any sort of crime is a tiny number when you take into account the people who are over in the Middle East trying to eliminate a violent threat to peace. If America just wanted to bomb the hell out of the Middle East and destroy everybody, we’d just send warheads. Instead we send brave soldiers so that they can aim at the killers and protect the people who just want to live their lives. But sure, you can go around convinced that our former President is a psychopathic murdering criminal. It’s just not true, nor is it based in reality.
      Oh, and because this is about a TELEVISION SHOW, I’ll add my two cents on that: I’m not going to watch it because I can’t afford HBO, and I’m not interested in the premium subscription stuff–it’s usually too graphic on all counts for me.

        • ewing says:

          Yeah, all this stupid internet posts on silly internet site (sorry, Ausiello…) are harming the country something fierce. You’re just losing all credibility with bulls*** like that. At least try to troll in intelligent manner.

    REVENGE.. Is futile. When your target owns a fleet of jets.. and, homes in 5 countries.. and, 7 states. Success, speaks for itself.
    While Jane and the legend in his own mind Sorkin.. STILL RENT APTS.
    Shes actually playing a MUCH Younger woman, who recently fired Sorkin, & has told JANE off to her face over PATRIOTS & TeaParty comments, numerous times!! The actual person, is a major Fox shareholder, who JANE..wishes.. she could be! When ACTUALLY she couldnt be a pimple.. on that Great Womans BUTT. She could however play her GRANDMOTHER. -Have fun Sorkin,, you wont last 10 episodes.
    Being desperate for ideas.. is starting to show. BOTH HASBEENS.

    I refuse to watch this traitor. I hope she falls off a cliff while doing aerobics and buzzards peck out her eyes while she is paralyzed from the neck down.

  46. Hey seriously says:

    holy crap, i did read that guys page on facebook in 2006!! guess he also wasn’t a money grubber like these two!! to much hassle to sue, and he had more class than they Sorkin, obviously. there are still creative artists with morals in this business. these 2 are examples of old hollywood gutter politics.

    I am one of the old guys who are scoffed at because they cannot forget what Ms. Fonda did. The picture will be forever in my mind, of her sitting in the gunner’s seat of an anti-aircraft gun (not a tank) with a N. Vietnamese soldier’s helmet on her head, and grinning at the camera. It the grin that hurt the most, while American young men were fighting and dying in the steaming jungle and only a few miles away American prisoners-of-war were enduring torture and terrible suffering. Some things are unforgettable and unforgivable.

    Holy hell, who would have thought TVLine would have had so many embittered, stuck-in-the-past middle-aged folk trolling its Comments section?

    Move on. Better yet, quit worrying about the past and start giving a crap about the fact that our economy is in the toilet and none one of the people who put it there have been charged with a crime.

    She’s not Hanoi Jane anymore. She’s done a lot in the last thirty years that has redeemed herself in the eyes of people capable of forgiveness. Learn, and keep your hate to yourself. Moderator – please get your lovely rear end over here and delete the posts of these sad people.

    • Timmy says:

      I like television so much that I comment on message boards about television shows and still have the temerity to call others sad.

    • Tyrone Shoelaces says:


      Thanks for the kind words and comments. BTW, your tolerant liberal slip is showing (once again). Now go back and read your post one. more. time. carefully. I know it’s a lost cause but I do love holding mirrors for people.

    • James Howell says:


      You are correct about the people responsible for the economic problems not being charged; Barney Frank and Senator Dodd are indeed still running around loose.
      Jane Fonda will ALWAYS be known as “Hanoi Jane.” She has not redeemed herself. She is a traitor and will always be known as a traitor. She and I are the same age. If she dies before I do, I hope to make it to her grave so I may piss on it.

    Sorkin and Fonda, eh? Two reasons I won’t be watching. If I want to be propagandized I’ll just watch the network news.
