  1. I believe Willem Dafoe has also been suggested as joining the film. Sounds like a great cast!
  2. I want to thank you all so much for your kind words. It means so much to me right now as we struggle through this process. Hug your children every day and tell them how much you adore them! The void in your heart and soul is so immeasurable when something like this happens, when someone you love is taken from your life so abruptly that it leaves you in such a state of shock and disbelief and guilt and pain, all the emotions you can think of that it's overwhelming and you're trying to deal with them all at the same time! And living next door to him makes it so difficult because every time I pass the kitchen window or walk outside, there sits his house over there, his truck parked out front, everything the way he left it like it's waiting for him to come home! His dogs always come over when he's away and they've been here now for a while looking up at me with bewilderment. How do you recover from something like this? I've been told it gets better. He was my heart and soul, the light of my life! I still see his big bright blue eyes shining down at me with his big smile and his ability to make me laugh even when I was a grump! How will I cope without that? I used to thank God I had him and that I was so blessed to have a son like him especially as I got older. It was a great relief and comfort to me! I used to say that no matter what happened in my life, I'd cope, but if I lost him, my life was over! I breathe, my heart is beating but my life has stopped! Chris wanted everyone around him to be happy and was always the one who was so light hearted but sometimes seemed his own heart was heavy. He could make your problems seem so petty. I wish I could have uplifted him as much as he did me! There are no words to say how much I'll miss him! I wish you all would have known him! There would have been no doubt that I was one of the luckiest Moms in the world! When I asked him a few weeks ago what he wanted for his upcoming birthday, he smiled and said "Gerry's cologne, of course!" He'd seen the commercial! His birthday is November 25. This will be one of the hardest days of my life to endure, second only to November 9, 2014. Delene
  3. No surfing for me but this is something I might give a try.....and the paddle boarding looks fun too!
  4. Finally! We've been so spoiled in the past with on set pics I was beginning to wonder if we would get any little "crumb" from the making of GOE at all! He looks real good and was wondering if he wears the mask/face of the God Set in the actual filming, not that we want that face hidden! Would like to get a glimpse of Mr. G. Rush too unless he's already filmed his part. I know he was over there much earlier before filming started. Looking so forward to this film! Thanks for the photos! Delene
  5. Not really disappointed he dropped it. Seemed like a lot on his schedule too. My son, Chris, wanted to ask Gerry if he wanted to grab his Harley and go to Sturgis with him in August and I told him Gerry would be busy filming. So now maybe he can get away....... Delene
  6. Hello all! Just popping in to say "hi"! Hope everyone is well and staying out of harm's way with this wild weather! Chilly here today and damp. I'm ready for warmer weather! Andrea, good luck with your kids! Didn't have time to read everything as I'm just breezing through! Butler looking good too. Nice photos! Delene
  7. He's going to be a busy boy if all of this is true! Sounds like an interesting plot. Delene
  8. Nice pics! I like his hair! I'm intrigued with the beard though. Did Egyptian Gods wear beards? It looks good too! Delene
  9. I bet Mr. Butler's a tad disappointed but relieved too! I'm glad he's getting stunt doubles. Of course we're talking "extreme" sports here and those guys are big risk takers to the max! Seems Gerry will be going all over the place to film this one too! Exciting! Delene
  10. I believe James Dean died in a car crash before he finished "Giant", didn't he Kathy? It seems silly to say an actor can't engage in any risky business when there are so many dangers in filming a movie, especially these days. You can get hurt twelve ways to Sunday while shooting even with a stunt double. He's wearing a helmet and goggles and that's a good thing. Not sure they're doing actual filming just yet unless Set has a beard! I am curious to see if we get to see Gerry's actual face or if he'll be covered with some sort of headgear that depicts a jackal or a bird, whichever one is appropriate. I heard the costumes are very elaborate and I'm sure he's involved in some of that right now. I'm really excited about GOE! Delene
  11. On the off chance you might stop by, I wanted to wish the handsomest guy ever a Happy Valentine's Day filled with lots of , and cupcakes . From my heart to yours. Delene
  12. One Two is gone, Mike Mike Mike B. to hump day island. I mean Exile Island (no camels). Delene
  13. Drac leaving, Mike B. to island....STAT! Delene
  14. Mike Banning to the island and George off. Delene
  15. It was Motor City that fell through. Gerry had to speed up completing OHF so he could start filming on it and he had already passed up some other offers to film Motor City too. I'd say that was worth a law suit. Delene
  16. Goodbye Jack R. Take your jar of shimmering protozoa and go. Send Mike Banning to the island.
  17. I'm kinda with you, Kathy. It's all just talk at this point. Let's see how many projects he was attached to that disappeared, like The Bricklayer, Motor City, Hunter Killer, Manhunt (?), Brilliant (?), The Garden of Last Days. Remember that project about Pinkerton, a made for TV series? That sounded like a really good one! That one would have a very strong appeal over here in the USA. I was really disappointed when Motor City fell through. That was the one that had Gary Oldman attached and I would have loved to see Gerry work with him. I still hold out hope for Thunder Run, The Raven, Dynamo and even the elusive Burns and I do think Gods of Egypt will happen and doing films like the remake of Point Break may not sound like a good idea to some at the time, he has to work to make the money it takes to make those films that are the dream projects too. I heard that he's never seen a script to London is Falling yet so you never know what the heck is going on. There's probably nothing more frustrating to any actor then to turn down work to do other things then have those things fall through! Maybe best thing to do is accept them all and then pick and choose when it gets down to nut cutting time. You can always say you're in before you sign on the dotted line can't you? I'm just anxious to see him up there on the big screen again. Delene
  18. I thought it was the job of his agent to bring him the projects, not Alan. I figured Alan's job was just managing the production company/business side of things. I would think it would take many people to handle The Butler and his interests but he would get the final say so in whatever he came across. I don't remember seeing the original Point Break although it sounds vaguely familiar. Will have to check it out. Not crazy about the idea of Gerry being involved in a project that has "extreme sports" and surfing big waves in it again but we all know how he loves the water and surfing and he'll probably grow his hair back out again! So what could go wrong, right? I am excited about "Gods of Egypt"! Life along the Nile with pyramids, desert, pharaohs, queens, gods and chariots! "Will there be camels involved?" Looks like he's going to be a busy boy this year! Keeps him out of trouble! Delene
  19. Say good bye to Terry S. and send Banning to the island and tell him I'll meet him there! Delene
  20. I wish for you all the joys and happiness that life can bring and know that you are always loved. You are what dreams and fantasies are made of and you are the only one who touched me without ever really touching. You have been my muse and my light and my laughter at times and most of all you have made me dream and I have loved you for it. Happy Birthday, Gerry! Delene
  21. Probably the Phantom but I am rather fond of Gerry Kennedy. Depends on my mood. Delene
  22. I have to honestly say that the third time was the charm for me. Things usually have to grow on me gradually. So I first saw Gerry in Tomb Raider. I'm watching my girl, Angelina when I saw the hot guy with the accent, I was somewhat....taken a bit. For as good an actor as he was, I couldn't figure out why I hadn't seen him before. But I do think it was the accent that got to me first. Actually, he reminded me of someone but I couldn't figure out who. Then there was "Reign of Fire". Not exactly a Gerry movie but watched it because my son knew I was a Mathew Mac fan. I did not make the connection at all but was quite distracted by the cute Scottish guy. The final straw was when I had just gotten home the day before from NYC where I had seen "Phantom of The Opera" at the Majestic. A friend had told me to see the film first and I'd understand the play better, which I failed to do. I didn't even know there was a movie version. So I turned on the TV and there was this guy standing in water, sexy white shirt, half of his face messed up, weird hair, singing his heart out and this girl, Christine of course, walking towards him and then she kisses him! Wow! I was hooked! I really didn't know all of these guys were the same one. I didn't make the connection at all but something sparked in me just the same. I was happy that the movie repeated so watched it in it's entirety and it was like being mesmerized! Beautiful singing, beautiful film and love at third sight! And I've been under the spell ever since! Some credit needs to go to Angie and Matt too. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for helping to light this fire! May it burn on eternally! Delene
  23. With all the stuff in the news lately about the way the paps bait celebs to entice bad behavior, it's good to see Gerry just chilling, thumbing up and being a nice guy. Don't give them drama because that's what they live for. They're going to photograph you anyway so smile, be polite even when they're not, and keep moving. I can see where it would be hard to ignore some of the stuff they say but no response is the best response. Go to that Zen place and just eat your cake. I see that piece of cake! He's looking good! Thanks for the pics, Barb. Delene
  24. I like the shoes too. You can't go wrong with blue! Delene
  25. Not sure I like this one especially if Mike Banning is heading towards a franchise, which I like much better and I feel has more staying power. Gaming is something that has a limited market and I would think draw a limited audience. I already have a strong aversion to the violent games that are out there so not a fan of this one at all. JMO.
