Anyone who reads, has read, or just likes guns and books listen up.

I read a few Stephen Hunter books while in the sandbox and liked them......even thought they would make a decent to good movie.

Too bad Clint Eastwood wasn't about 20 years younger... he would hae been erfect for the Bob Lee Swaggert role.

Edit: could have been worse... at least it's not Leonardo Di Caprio in the role.

They have been trying to make point of impact into a movie for almost 11 years. It dies every time. Last time around it was supposed to be Keanu Reeves as Bob the Nailer.

His brother, Donny, did a good job in Band of Brothers IMO.
Maybe it won't be so bad.

Aww hell, who am I kidding. Hollywood will fuck it up regardless of who plays Bob.

Donny did do a very good job in BoB

Marky Mark, OTOH, sucks. His 'effeminate tough guy' acting ruins every role.

Just finished Havana and thought it was a pretty good read and would make a great movie. Won't happen as long as Castro is alive. I think I like Earl better that Bob Lee.

His politics sucks but I always thought of Tommy Lee Jones as the older Bob Lee.

If the story is good Walburg might be able to pull it off, who knows.
