the reason why so many old dogs, are trying to make a 2nd career

he’s not hurting
the
movie any,

so

he can stay- keep his role

not like
some other actors
who
need a good movie
to make
them look good

not

like most actresses
who
win oscars by
running around
topless

the good actresses though

they
remind you of your
mother
of
your first girlfriend
of the queen
or that girl
from the wrong side
of the tracks
or
make you wish
you were
a teenager again

but

damn
they’re few and far
between

(back to the actors)

this one is trying to be
his
hero
………..he’s gotta go.
