Oooh nice pics!

I think I started liking Edward Norton after watching American History X.  I also enjoyed The Score, Red Dragon, The 25th Hour and Fight Club.  I-I... actually haven't seen Primal Fear.  :ph43r:

Oh hay, and he's from Columbia, MD!  I think his grandfather founded the damn city.

^ He's great in Primal Fear, I recommend it for that! lol

He used to be one of my fav actors and I'd still be willing to accept him back for that spot if he did something I really liked. But, idk, I guess I haven't been paying attention. Saw the Hulk movie and wasn't that crazy about it :lol:

His voice is fascinating and hot, haha. If he did audio books, man I don't even want to think what I'd do with those.
