Good idea to highlight more unknown parts of QT's career. Plus if we gather further infos, can only be good for the wiki too.

Seb made a good choice by going with the lesser examined works.

I find it funny that QT was in a movie about Eddie Presly and Kurt Russell played Elvis Presly in Forrest Gump, and Bruce Campbell also played the king in Bubba Ho-tep as well... very interesting.

Kurt acted with Elvis as a little kid in It Happened At The Worlds Fair, played Elvis in John Carpenter's 1978 TV movie, did the voice for Gump then dressed up as Elvis impersonator in the crime flick 3000 Miles to Graceland.

Nice, Seb. I think I'll rewatch this episode once. It's been such a long time I haven't. Even if I'm still an ER addict.

OK, I just noticed something that wont stand man. Read this sentence:

"We all know perfectly well how it starts. There’s usually someone being hauled into the ER, bleeding like a stuck pick"

Whats wrong with that? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I was just kidding really, but I read "a stuck pick" and it made me laugh.

I have been in love with Killing Zoe for the longest time. Incredible movie. I stumbled upon it one day on cable and had to own it. I wish I could get the directors cut, but I'm no Landa.  ;)

I love Killing Zoe!!! Can't wait for the Golden Girls. It's hilarious to watch Quentin's Elvis impersonation. Maybe you should you should do one on Destiny Turned the Radio On. hehe ^..^

I don't have it either. I kinda enjoyed the movie. If I had it, I would do it for the site. We'll see what I can do...
