    maybe cuz....it didn't exist! :eek:

  9. still..i think its a good choice for the role...i cant really think of anyone else.....i dont think samuel jackson eould be good..nor eddie murphy :D
  10. well if it's a comedy, but I'm sure it's going to be drama/tragedy knowing his life. I can't see chappelle delivering a great dramatic performance, but who knows. I think samuel jackson would be perfect.

    That's terrible. What a totally distasteful "tribute" to a fantastic musician/songwriter. BOO.

    And speaking of jokes that have been beaten to death, dragged out into the street, kicked a few times, then hung up on the wall for us to look at for about a year now. My lord, get something new to find funny.

    Very very not cool.

    Yeah... actually dave is kind of pissed at that joke... he jokes on it but he is kind of tired of it... i mean his last best of best show was "best of best except rick james" at stand up he said "that joke ruined my life... now every where i go all i see is rick james and aperently i am a bitch"

    But i think he can do a good job at it (non comedy)... he is a good actor even though he is comedy... i think he can do it...

    PS i think prience was better:D
  16. i agree with kserg...he's a good actor, AND he was casted for the role BEFORE "im rick james...."

    he's got the vibe...he's young..i think sam jackson is gettin to old

    Indeed, the Prince skit was much funnier. I mean, c'mon pancakes after kickin' ass at basketball.
