Tom Cruise and John Travolta want to hurt Paul Haggis

    Fascinating. Haggis resigns (loudly) from Scientology.

    I read the whole letter last night on another site.

    Haggis would eat Travolta's lunch and whip Tom's puny ass up and down the west coast seaboard.

    That's one guy I wouldn't want to fuck with if I'm a Scientologist.

    Dude's pissed. That's a good thing!

    There's been a lot of talk since Travolta's son died that they might not be real happy with Scientology either. When they said at the trial that Jett had autism, it was seen as a rebuke against the Church, which doesn't recognize autism as an affliction.

    Good for Haggis. The pride of London, Ontario, and I'm hoping they feel even more pride in him now than they did previously. :)

    Who is Paul Haggis?

    The Oscar-winning screenwriter for "Crash," also nominated for "Million Dollar Baby" and "Letters From Iwo Jima."

    He also wrote "Flags of Our Fathers," "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace," and was an Emmy-winning TV writer-producer-creator ("thirtysomething," "Due South," "Walker, Texas Ranger") before switching to films.

    Haggis has had as interesting writing career as anyone - started out writing sitcoms like Diffrent Strokes and The Love Boat - moved up to L.A. Law and Due South, Walker Texas Ranger - to Crash, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, Casino Royale, Letters From Iwo Jima, In the Valley of Elah and Quantum of Solace, all in the last five years. Nice run.

    No wonder I don't know him, Double J. I haven't seen any of those.

    EDIT: I have seen DS and TLB, but not in 25-plus years.

    Fair enough. I'm just saying, he's as big a wheel as there is in the Hollywood writing community.

    Right now he's writing, producing and directing a film called The Next Three Days, with Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks and Olivia Wilde. We should all be so lucky to be working on a film with both Elizabeth Banks and Olivia Wilde. Well, I should be so lucky. ;)

    Can't argue, but I like the other chick from House better.

    A Scottish dish, consisting of intestines or something.

    I think it is stuffed intestines, though I am quite happy to go through life without investigating further.
