    no, not one of the babes in the MTV videos! Sheesh! But imagine you're in a foxhole and you have to pick an actor to be in there with you. What actor would you choose that you think would give you the best chance of getting out alive. Explain. Also, which actor would you just rather not have in there with you?

    Myself, I think I'd go with Bruce Willis. From seeing his movies and hearing some of his interviews, I get the impression this guy's got some guts and not afraid to stand up for what he believes.

    As far as who I'd not want in there with me, I think that'd be Johnny Depp. I like his movies but I figure any American actor who spends all his time in France has become a bit too cowardly for me.

    Give me Kate Beckinsale. Then I wouldn't even be concerned with getting out.

    Brian Denehey.
    He's cocky, big and fat, and I could use him as a shield and at nite, as a matress instead of the hard ground.

    I would want to have Lee Marvin in there watching my back. He was hardcore in his movies and his life plus he fought in the big one.

    And I most certainly wouldn't want to have Tom Cruise with me. The glare from his capped teeth would draw enemy fire like nobody's business.

    I'd go with Jesse Ventura. Wasn't he Special Forces? I figure he could keep me alive longer then most.

    Are you guys kidding me? MacGyver would be my natural first choice by a long shot as he would make some kind of machine out of shrapnel that would tunnel us out.

    My next choice would be the lovely Elle Macphearson. [​IMG]

    Arnold Schwarzenegger...Not because he was the Terminator, or any of his other characters, but because he's a Governor and probably has access to some kick-ass "backup". [​IMG]

    If I knew I wasn't going to make it out alive, Anne Hathaway. If i'm gonna die at least i'll die smiling. [​IMG]

    But if I knew I had a chance of making it, either Captain Dale Dye or R. Lee Ermey. Those are two tough-as-nails dudes who'd go down fightin'! [​IMG]

    Lee Marvin chewing a stogey. A real man's soldier.... though I have no idea what he was like as a normal person. Then again, now that Heather Locklear may be on-the-market.... (I may be naive, but has she aged insanely well ? Doesn't look malformed by cosmetic surgery ala Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton)





    Not to get political, but here's an excerpt from "Drinking Games for High Society":

    - Watch the History Channel. Do a beer bong every time France surrenders

    Might have to try that one...

    I would want Ron Jeremy or Jenna Jameson, either way one of these two would be recognized as a non-threat and while they sign autographs I could make my escape.[​IMG]

    Chuck Norris.

    I mean, c'mon people! He could kick the bullets back at the enemy while I light his victory cigar. Otherwise, I'd take a female porn star. No one guy might improve your chances of getting out, but that choice would definitely improve your chances of enjoying it.

    One of the Baldwin brothers. They'll draw fire while I calmly walk away from the situation.

    Christopher Walken. He'd not only win the war, he'd single-handedly conquer the world and re-instate the fucking Roman Empire. Although John's idea (Anne Hathaway) does have its merits [​IMG]

    Who wouldn't I want with me? Tom Cruise. I can just see it: "Did you know machine guns were invented by a psychiatrist? Let Scientology free your mind, friend. I've done the research and you haven't".

    Don't be so glib, Ricardo. :p)

    I'd want James T. Kirk, because he could fashion a cannon out of locally available materials. And then we could pick up women afterward.

    [​IMG] Yeah, plus I could ask him to keep my gold watch in a "safe place" to give to my son in case I don't make it. [​IMG]
