Definitely check out Charlie Wilson's War if you haven't seen it. His best film as far as I've seen, plus cracker performances from Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.

Would imagine a lot of folk have seen Twister, intentionally or otherwise & he's probably the best character in it.

That's almost a compliment.

In a way it is, I know people who hated it at first though.

I don't mind Twister, in all honesty. One of those I enjoyed when I was younger & now if it's on TV I'll tend to leave it on as it's quite fun & it has an awesome soundtrack.

PSH makes the movie though, with Dusty's antics.

I had to google to find out who he was.. seems I'm the only person who had no clue who he was. Looks like the only movie I've seen of his is Almost Famous.

Muppeteer John Paul Henson.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2014/02/15/john-henson-muppets-dies/5513653/?csp=fbfanpage

John Paul Henson followed his father, Muppets creator Jim Henson, into puppeteering, and sadly, to an early death.

The younger Henson, 48, fell victim to a sudden heart attack Friday in Saugerties, N.Y.

John was the puppeteer behind the ogre Sweetums.

He leaves behind a wife, Gyongi, and two daughters, Katrina, 15, and Sydney, 10.

The Muppets have been back in the spotlight recently, thanks to their new film, Muppets Most Wanted, opening March 21, and a series of Super Bowl commercials for the Toyota Highlander.

A statement from the Henson Company read, "It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson, son of Jim and Jane Henson and brother to Lisa, Cheryl, Brian and Heather, died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, February 14, while at home with his daughter. John served as a shareholder and board member of The Jim Henson Company. He leaves two daughters, Katrina (15) and Sydney (10) and his wife Gyongyi. A private service is being planned."
