Yes, you read the title right. Thomas Jane, who portrayed The Punisher in the 2004 movie, decided he wanted to revisit the character of Frank Castle again. So he made a fan film – just 10 minutes long – about Castle doing something simple. Laundry day.
But as you might imagine, it doesn’t quite go as planned.
I may be among the few people who really enjoyed Jane’s performance of the Punisher vs. the version with Ray Stevenson from a few years ago. Jane brought some humanity to the character, which is probably why true Punisher fans didn’t like it. Hopefully this isn’t the last time we see Jane in the role.
Yes, it’s true. Occasionally I like to color outside the lines. This post is a bit out of the norm that I try to post on my blog – but it’s too funny to ignore.
Michael Bolton. The name for me brings up memories of a concert at Fiddler’s Green (now renamed) in Englewood, CO, for Michael Bolton and Kenny G. The sound system didn’t work for the part I wanted to hear (hint: not Michael Bolton). And though I survived, I have to say watching Bolton sing is akin to having a prostate exam.
That said, Bolton just redeemed himself by making fun of his image with the comedy troupe The Lonely Island. The Lonely Island consists of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg and they’ve been doing off-color humorous rap songs for a while now. Have to admit I’ve not been a huge fan because of the swearing, but this video made me laugh so hard I think I’ll get over it…
