    Anybody heard this one yet? I thought that it would be like one of those William Shatner, Andy Griffith, etc. albums. You know, guys who can't sing trying to sing.

    I was surprised to find that "Harry da Gimp" of the Usual Suspects really can sing those swing tunes and ballads! Boy, if they only new that Kaiser Soh-say can sing as well as wreak murder and mayhem! (inside joke for all you Usual Suspects fans).

    I heard him sing on some Beatles tribute show on TV a few years back. The dude can sing. And American Beauty if one of my favorite movies fo all time.

    I just saw the previews to Spacey's movie "Beyond the Sea" today before "Ocean's Twelve." I was amazed how much Spacey resembled Bobby Darren.

    Mind you, I am fussy about this because I was a huge Bobby Darren fan from the day he first appeared on American Bandstand in 1960 singing "Splish Splash." Later I was really sold by "Mack the Knife."

    Then I was mad at him for marrying Sandra early Britney Spears predecessor--of course not as bold and bare as Miss Spears, because actresses just weren't back then. All we teenage girls then loved Bobby Darren and Franky Avalon, but I thought Darren had more substance because he could sing swing as well as Sinatra (I thought.) Plus, Elvis Presley was too brazenly sexual for my tender tastes. He scared me.

    I can't wait to see the movie and wonder when Oscar nominations are announced who will get the nod--Jamey Fox for "Ray" or Kevin Spacey for "Beyond the Sea" or both.
