    I watched Ugly Betty and I sure as hell don't remember that guy.

    I could not even fathom getting murdered in that fashion. Or any fashion.

    Hell, I remember the scene in "The Sopranos" where Vito got whacked, getting chills thinking about what it must be like to know, out of nowhere when you were just going about your day, what was about to happen to you.

    Sounds as though he might have been strung out on Jesus and energy drinks.

    He's not even listed on IMDB and they list everyone. Hell, I'm on there and I've done jack.

    I think the point is, why even risk it?

    I think "Actor charged in death of mother" would get the point across without being as potentially libelous.

    When it comes to crimes, you have to be VERY careful as a journalist.

    Absolutely spot on, F_T .... however, I was trying to point out (in an admittedly snarky fashion) that his statement ("Wow, what a libelous headline") is guilty of almost the same thing he's railing against. The headline treats the accused as if he were already convicted and MisterCreosote does the same, convicting the desker who wrote the headline.

    "he's just a guy in the background on one episode."

    Ironically, that's exactly what the rep at MGM said about the guy swinging from the tree in the Wizard of Oz.

    His resume is "according to Haiti Internet movie database website BelFim.com."


    And they got access to this guy in the psych ward? Really? I call bull.
