HERGE AND BABY JESUS ARE CRYING: This one gets its very own item. According to FilmForce, one-kidneyed wonder Steven Spielberg is still pursuing his dream of making a movie based on TIN-TIN, the classic Belgian comics character who starred in some of the greatest adventures ever put on paper. And, get this, not as classic, yet still Belgian film star Jean-Claude Van Damme has reportedly been begging Spielberg to cast him as Tin-Tin.
Okay, now that you have dried your tears and wiped up the sick, read on. Contacted by a hopeful Van Damme fan, the official Tin-Tin website gently informed the fan that Tin-Tin is a plucky teen-aged boy while Jean-Claude Van Damme is…not. JC is not, repeat not being considerd for the role.
This is FANTASTIC reading! I have to admit, I am curious as to the accuracy of some of the theories, but hey, if you annotate something enough it sure *sounds* plausible. Overall, an impressive waste of time.
