Re: LOTR and Megan Fox
@jyalai- You're right about the lembas. I think it would be more fun to quiz Fox on Transformers since they made her famous.

Daniel Craig
It saddens me that James Bond can't convince his girlfriend to play Halo with him. The secret, 007, is to find a gamer to be with like I did. Even if we don't play the same games, at least we can each get in some stick time on separate computers.

Seriously, I'm giving love advice to James Bond. How cool am I?

Mila Kunis
And can I just say that my special love for Mila Kunis only grew ten sizes when I realized she was a gamer geek. Between that and her Bourbon ads I'll forever be smitted. Darn you, Aston Kutcher!

Rod Stewart
some of these make sense, like Stevev Colbert being a Hobbit fan. But it is hilarious that the guy who sang "if you want my body and you think I'm sexy" could have easily finished it with "come and play with my trains."

My favorite song of Stewart's (never been a fan) has always been "Downtown Train." I'll never hear it the same way. Love this.

Right? That must be huge! Personally, I'd love to see that diorama of Grand Central.

Re: The One area where they are like us
@kstaron, very true. Everybody needs a hobby for their downtime - but not everybody has the money or time (or space, for that matter) to dedicate to massive model train sets or antique typewriters.
