    Considering that one of the other 'actors' listed is the guy behind the website "Something Awful", I'm thinking someone's hoaxed the IMDB.

    How will Ballmer have the time to do the role, considering he's starring in Indy 4 & directing Episode III? [​IMG]

    Could you imagine the product placements in the movie if Ballmer was in it? The "4" on their uniforms would be replaced with the windows logo.

    Well, since the character's name is "Reed Richards" and not "Richard Reed" I have to doubt the validity of anything else listed for that movie....

    I thought I was losing my mind on that one. I was grinding my gears on "Richard Reed" thinking I'd lost my mind or missed some big news on a major alteration.

    Big hoax it sounds like to me.
