Cool.

Moore is in the line of Clint's ire


Clint Eastwood squinted like Dirty Harry Tuesday night as he took aim at Michael Moore.

"Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common - we both appreciate living in a country where there's free expression," Eastwood told the star-dotted crowd attending the National Board of Review awards dinner at Tavern on the Green, where Eastwood picked up a Special Filmmaking Achievement prize for "Million Dollar Baby."

Then, the Republican-leaning actor/director advised the lefty filmmaker: "But, Michael, if you ever show up at my front door with a camera - I'll kill you."

The audience erupted in laughter, and Eastwood grinned dangerously.

"I mean it," he added, provoking more guffaws.

Sitting well out of range at a table in back, Moore - who received a special "Freedom of Expression" award for his anti-Bush polemic "Fahrenheit 9/11" - chuckled.

What a difference from last summer, when Moore's supporters complained that death threats were arriving almost daily and the director showed up at the Democratic Convention with a security detail.

Back then, Moore was outraged when CNN anchor Bill Hemmer suggested during an interview that some folks might want to see him dead.

"Can you think of any other interview in the history of television where a politician or a movie director was asked about people wanting to see him dead?" Moore seethed to me at the time.

But, in this case, Moore's rep told me yesterday: "Michael laughed along with everyone else, and took Mr. Eastwood's comments in the lighthearted spirit in which they were given."

Phew.

Hey, I take pride in what I do.

Eastwood just went up another notch on my scale of cool people. I mean, he was already a bad-ass and great actor, now he's even cooler.

The trick is to post it quick, then go back and edit in all the fancy colors and fonts.

He'd probably Hang 'Em High, if he could find a strong enough rope.

ETA:  Hey, it works! (adding fancy colors)

"Hi folks, I'm Clint Eastwood. Today I'm doing a tv special on how we did special effects back in the old days of movies. For instance, where we use blanks and sugar glass today, back then we used live ammunition and real glass. I have a few other celebrities here who are going to help demonstrate how we did our much more dangerous special effects safely and effectively. First up is a scene from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, where the infamous Tuco is being hanged and I shoot the rope. Michael Moore is helping with this one, so let's get the noose on. Good and tight, Mike? All right, then I move over to this end of the sound stage, chamber my rifle, adjust the sights, and when the director gives the signal, Michael drops to hang from the rope and I shoot the rope in half. Ready? Go! Oops, look at that. I forgot to load my rifle! Hang on a sec, Mike, gotta put a couple shells in here. 'Hang on'. Heh. I kill me. Okay, it's loaded now. Lemme just- wait, forgot to chamber it. Stupid me, I'm getting dumb in my old age. Okay, here we go. Blast, missed. Dang it, missed again. Stupid sights are off, lemme adjust 'em. Okay, let's try this again. Nope, shooting too high. Lemme adjust- Well, that's not good. Michael, are you okay? Sorry about your shoulder. Hey, uh, you're kinda turnin' blue. Guess I better shoot that rope fast, huh? Okay, lemme just- Wouldn't you know, all out of shells. Hey, stagehand! Go get the box of shells out of my trailer. And hurry up about it, would ya?"
