The other day, I was talking with Haiwen about the original Superman, and, in particular, Marlon Brando's portrayal of Jor-El. I noted that Brando, who was paid $3 million for ten minutes of screen time, was clearly reading from cue cards.

"Christopher Walken would have done a better job," Haiwen said. "Now there's a scary thought. Can you imagine if Chrisopher Walken were the last sane man on a dying planet?"

My reply: "Well, maybe he is."
