…who actually lives his religion:

when he was suddenly replaced with David James Elliott 3 days into the filming on ABC’s new series Scoundrels earlier this week, there had to be a story behind the story. The move was officially explained as a casting change. But, in fact, McDonough was sacked because of his refusal to do some heated love scenes with babelicious star (and Botox pitchwoman) Virginia Madsen. The reason? He’s a family man and a Catholic, and he’s always made it clear that he won’t do sex scenes.

According to the article this is costing him as much as $1 million dollars. There are plenty of men who would happily do heated love scenes with Virginia Madsen for nothing, but some people just can’t be bought.

Gawker makes an interesting point:

I don’t know about Hollywood, but in the real world, being fired for refusing to take your shirt off and make out with someone is called sexual harassment!

In case you don’t know who he is:

And this is the woman he turned down:

I tip my fedora to him.

Update: Fancast calls him the “anti-tiger

This interview demonstrates the need to carry extra batteries with you at all times.

The Lonely Conservative is one of the most worthwhile blogs you can read during the day, so don’t miss it.

Q: How do you know when the world has gotten really weird and you are getting old?

I don’t know what is scarier. The fact that the almost 16 year old girl knows about “fundies” or that she was telling me about them. At that age I would have been really embarrassed to mention this to my parents let alone to a “pseudo father”/friends dad.

BTW. Because the girl grew up with my son and were babysat together by my wife (and sometimes my mother) she is practically considered family, thus the Pseudo daughter stuff.

Ever have one of those days…

…when you just feel the grip of despair around your neck?

For whatever reason feeling that D-Day is coming seems particularly acute today. Not particularly sure why.

I guess I’d better spend less time worrying and more time hussling.
