It started about the similarities of the title (John Carter, Jack Reacher) and snowballed from there. And I admit complicity in that. tongue.gif

If it's a bother to you, PM a mod and I'm sure they'll move it.

- Sammo Hung is the size of Kevin James, but can do action better than 99% of the people out there. wink.gif

They might hit similar numbers on the scales or shirt sizes, but Sammo Hung isn't what I would define as a "tub of lard."

Plus, Hung doesn't get all the martial arts roles. There are times you'd want Jet Li instead.

I had a chance to see Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, in person, at the Blade Runner Directors Cut Premiere in Westwood some 20+ years ago. Unless he grew few inches since then, there's no way he's 5''7"; Nicole was a head taller.
