    I love Venessa Redgrave. Just sayin’.

  2. Cherry says:

    Wow! Incredible casting. I’d watch anything with Redgrave in it. I’m sold.

  3. DL says:

    All I can say is that must be a damn great script to get her on board. I’ll definitely check it out.

    Vile woman. Poor Kelly Reilly, she will soon learn the horrors of working with the evil witch.

    Gawd! She’s 74 years old.

    I would definitely not recommend these as ways to
    break the ice however. “Arsenio was a big hit way back when, he
    exited prematurely, and aren’t we all just plain tired with
    Jay Leno and Letterman. He represented his homeland in four
    Olympics and is a three-time indoor world champ in the 1500 meters.
