"He says his name is Bono and he comes from a planet called K-Pax..."

So I went to see K-Pax. Very good film.

First of all, every single time I saw the poster, I did a double take. Kevin Spacey looks a tad like Bono, on the poster. The dark hair and glasses...anyway, so when I saw the film, all these little things that Prot (Spacey's character) did kept reminding me of Bono. Anyone else who's seen the film will have to back me up:

*Always dressing in black
*That way he kept looking up with blissful wonderment at everything
*Refusing to remove his shades
*The way he charmed everyone and got people to hang on his every word
*He was so calm and cool about everything (excluding the hypno scenes). He acted like EVERYTHING, no matter how mundane or shocking or complicated, was mildly amusing to him.
*His cadence and the way he smiled

Am I the only one that noticed this? Does anyone else think Bono would have made a good Prot?

Are there any other film roles that made you go, "Hey, you know who would have done a GREAT job playing this guy? Adam!/Edge!/Bono!/Larry!"

I've seen the poster a lot (AOL has TONS of ads.. yuck) and every single time I see it out of the corner of my eye, I think,"Hey! An advertisement with Bono?".. and then I look again.

Dude- I reacted the saaame way whenever I saw those damn posters!!
Yeah I'll agree that Bono was a bit similar to Prot, except B is a bit louder, heh. More of a spectacle I guess. Nice observations!

Alright, new survey: You get to watch the U2 member of your choice eating the food item of your choice. So what'll it be?

And Mona, you can only answer ONCE.

...twice if you write a skit about it....

Mona, I just typed up a letter which I am putting safely away in the top drawer of my dresser. It reads:

"In the event that I am found dead, hunched over my computer, having apparently choked on something I was eating or drinking, and if PLEBA is on my computer screen at the time of death, please arrest Mona for Murder By Fatally Amusing PLEBA Post."

Yeah, I agree. I went to go to the movies today to see Serendipity and I kept doing double takes at the K-Pax posters. This picture particularily reminds me of it!!

Well, a bit anyway.
