  • At this point, would anyone take Miley Cyrus seriously in any role? She’s approaching or has approached cartoon status.

  • Wasn’t that other Disney pixie Hilary Duff and not Miley Cyrus being considered before? She and Faye Dunaway even got into a verbal bitch slapping contest over it.

    • These days… script, director & especially technique all contribute to something being extremely watchable….. Can’t wait to see what should be a more accurate & historical view of this event. I’m all for ” getting it real ” …there’s enough fiction on the news broadcasts already!
