    As a safety measure, they should scan him for trojans and then quarantine him

    He'll just come up as a false positive.
     
  7. No in mother Russia jokes? Pretty bad that if you do finally succeed people try to extort you.

    No, we have standards here. Granted, they're not exactly high, but they do exist.

    Haha beautiful...

    On topic now, is it just me or does this "20 year old kid" look like he's 15?

    I was thinking he looked more like Beau Bridges than Jeff. ;)

    Why would the movie be boring? Rade Serbedzija would play the evil mastermind. Olga Kurylenko the hot female hostage negotiator, and Karl Urban as the FSB agent who may or may not have had a hand in the kidnapping. Climax is a fistfight in a helicopter above the Kremlin, and the villain gets impaled on the star on top of the Spasskaya Tower.

    You should totally use that talent of yours, It would at the very least be a neat Bollywood movie! Not sure were to stick the dancing-scene though...

    Olga Kurylenko, Topless Dancer-slash- Hostage Negotiator.....

    Oh, that's easy, in a "gentlemen's" club controlled by the Russian Mob. (Who were, after all, responsible for the kidnapping in the first place).

    I never knew the Kremlin had a "Spasstic" tower.....:rolleyes: (Yes, I know I've embarrassed myself with a pun that bad. But still, I feel it needed to be said).
