Boris Karloff

Boris Karloff is probably most famous for portraying the monster in the 1931 version of Frankenstein, but he is also the voice of the Grinch in the 1966 TV short How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Every year when I remember to watch the cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, it makes me wish that everyone involved in the Jim Carrey version would be fired from Hollywood.

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is reprising his role as Ethan Hunt in the fourth installment of Mission Impossible, this one entitled Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. It’s probably a decent movie and it will make a lot of money over the next few weeks. Unfortunately, I can’t see it due to my strict rule of not seeing movies with more than one punctuation mark in the title.

Rob Wells

Rob Wells played Ricky on the Canadian series Trailer Park Boys. The show lasted 7 seasons with a couple of movies mixed in along the way. If you’ve never seen it, you really should check it out. It is hilarious.

I’ve often thought that Canadians are funnier than American’s, but that might be influenced by my love for anything John Candy.
