When they released it in the USA they didn't advertise Mel Gibson, just all the car scenes, as they thought that Mel wouldn't draw anyone (him being a little known aussie actor).


Actually, Gibson was born in New York and moved with his family to NSW when he was a kid. I don't see any indication he holds Austrailian citizenship. Just being technical.

As for Dark Tower, I've been listening to the book on CD's while travelling. It's a bit Road Warrior, a bit King Arthur, a bit Gamma World, and a bit transdimensional time travel. It's about a gunslinger in search of the Dark Tower, the central nexus of time and space. If you've read (not watched the movie) "Hearts in Atlantis" you read a bit about the Tower and "all things serve the beam." From what I understand, King is bringing all his writing into some relationship with this series and with the Dark Tower as a concept. I'm eager to see how it ends (I just finished book 3). Never was much of a Steven King fan, until seeing "Green Mile" and listening to "Bag of Bones" and "Heart in Atlantis" Now I'm kinda hooked.

Actually he did hold Aussie citizenship, but he gave it up when he went back to the USA. We still claim him as ours, because he started here, keeps a house here and still works here now and then.

I think both countries can claim him without any problems.

I've had dinner with Elle MacPherson and her parents and sister several times.

I drop down to my knees and start chanting

Hehe. Yeah I've been a little lucky. I know John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes, came within spitting distance of running a Werewolf: the Apocalypse game for Metallica, and semi-regularly get to chat with a number of aussie actors. None of them would be considered friends, but if they see me, they generally recognise me and will at least say "G'day".
