    Gentlemen, you should be ashamed of yourselves for not knowing that answer. Come on... you let a girl beat you on a 007 question. [face_shame_on_you] :D

    Okay, I've got a Harry Potter question:

    Originally, Richard Harris declined the part of Dumbledore because he knew he wouldn't live long enough to finish all 7 of the stories. What was said to him and by whom that changed his mind?

    Sorry, I didn't check out the 007 question. I knew that one!
    Gotta love Odd Job!

    Anyway, Richard Harris only agreed to taking the part of Albus Dumbledore in HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE (or PHILOSOPHER'S STONE, depending on your country) after his granddaughter threatened never to speak to him again.

    Correct! I think that's a great story. I still have a problem seeing the new guy as Dumbledore. When I'm reading the books, I see picture Richard Harris. How's that for being stuborn?

    Your turn!

    It's Philosopher's Stone! Interesting tid bit of info on the title change, apparently the publisher's though that the US market wouldn't know what a Philosopher was so they decided to change it. :rolleyes:

    I'd have just left it the same as the rest of the world.

    My little cousin was in the first 3 films as an extra pupil in the school.

    This is America and it's "Sorcerer" here. From what I've read, the publisher thought US kids would think about a philosopher and say, "BORING!" Sorcerer sounds much more exciting! Regardless, I agree that it should have been the same all over, whichever term they decided to use.

    How cool for your cousin!! Can you find him in the movies? Sometimes an extra only gets an elbow or back of their head in the final edition, but it's still neat to see any part of them!!

    Hey, how is your finger doing?

    Matthew did some background work a few years ago on Zoe 101 and Unfabulous and a couple of commercials. It was really interesting! Thankfully, his life got too busy so he stopped doing it. Oh darn! No more 5:00am drives through downtown LA for me!! They get a basic rate of $118 per day. Not bad for a young kid. Of course, these weren't major motion pictures he was in either. Are we talking about a 4 or 5 figure amount for the movie?

    Return of the Jedi

    Salacious Crumb was Jabba's court jester and had to make him laugh once a day otherwise he would eat him. I wonder what Kowakian monkey-lizard tastes like??? [face_sick]

    AaS: You beat me by 4 minutes!!

    OK, here goes.

    Here's a nice easy one off the top of my head.

    How many grains of sand are there on Tatooine?


    Only kidding, here's the real question.

    Where can the Millenium Falcon be seen in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith?

    The Millennium Falcon appears early in the movie, approaching the Republic Senate landing bays at the same time as the rescued Chancellor Palpatine and his Jedi rescuers arrive in their shuttle.
