And the best athlete-turned-actor is…

October 28, 2012


Holy crap was that a tight race! Some awfully surprising results down there, but going solely off his turns in Lock, Stock and Snatch (and despite being nearly identical movies with nearly identical characters), it’s hard to argue against Jones lest you want your wiener crushed. Can’t wait to see who eventually wins the worst athlete-turned-actor poll, but until then, swell voting, folks!

– Vinnie Jones: 9 votes
– Andre the Giant: 8 votes (lotta Princess Bride fans in the house)
– Chuck Norris: 7 votes
– Ahnuld: 4 votes (gotta say, surprisingly low turnout)
– Carl Weathers: 3 votes
– O.J. Simpson: 2 votes
– Bob Uecker: 1 vote
– Jim Brown: 1 vote
– Bubba Smith: 1 vote
– Gina Carano: 1 vote (right on)
– Shaq: 1 vote (thank you, whoever you are)
– Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson: 1 vote (not sure how I forgot to include him on the list, but the write-in vote did make sure to add “so hot” to the entry)
– Merlin Olson: 1 vote
– Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: 0 votes (how the hell did that happen?)

And apologies for the lack of reviews and comment replies this past week. The flu sucks.

    Carl Weathers only got three votes?? Looks like some people need to watch Arrested Development.
    Side note, we saw Cloud Atlas this weekend and I am really looking forward to seeing your review on it – it spurred interesting discussion. Go see it!

      Hahaha. You said it. Carl Weathers deserves so much more love than he got.

      And actually writing my Cloud Atlas review right after I finish replying to this backlog of comments. Lots to write about, huh?

      Hahaha. I know, I know, I know. Was super busy with job interviews and the like last week, PLUS, my computer flat-out died on me and I won’t have a new one to work with until tomorrow. Borrowing the wife’s comp until then. But don’t you worry, Heche, this week shall be chock full of updates.
