Jonny you're the forum stud... 😆 No homo!!!
Ahum, something got lost in the translation, I think.

Ok, the story is a young Norwegian sailor of just 16 years of age, jumps ship in Dakar, Senegal, a French colony in 1957. He joins the French Foreign Legion, becomes a paratrooper and serves five years in the Algerian war. Collects heaps of medals, etc

Surely, for an actor to play this role in a movie he must be both good looking and a bit of a macho kind of character, I reckon. Perhaps a young Tom Cruise? Nah, too sissy. Steve Mc Queen ? Yeah, but a bit too old for the role. Robert Redford ? Perfect, but way too old. Oh dear.😎

OK, no movie about Jonny then........

As for the record, since this being close to Christmas, I have now swithed my evening sundowner from vodka tonic (with beerchaser) to aquavite and beer.

The aquavite just lovely puts me into the Christmas spirit, I can just make out Rudolf running down the hill now!

Back to single malt again for New Years Eve and the Edinburough tattoo!

Marry Christmas to you all!!

Brad Pitt?

Sorry to hear that, I thought he could be a candidate, but on the other hand, I just dont keep up with actors much.

Note to self: Stop making jokes.

Daniel Craig? Reminds me of Steve McQueen but not so much of Johnny.

I would help you Johnny. Let me put this way. If you are in your best years and you accept Sexpert's proposal to show you inside of his tank when you finally get out you would not be happy camper. :) Or maybe you will :) it depends.

But, but, Simon Murray made a movie about himself, called The Deserter, with somebody Tom Hardy playing Simon. A total rubish of a movie, but never mind, we can do better with the Jonny movie, non?

I`ve seen that movie , boring and clearly under financed , almost like Murray wanted to say "Look what I did" , I agree Jonny ,your career certainly sounds much more interesting.

Voilà la solution ! Dusa can play Jonny in the next Hollywood blockbuster.
All those in favor, 'like' Dusa's offer and say aye.
Ja, ja. Jeg lærer norsk allerede and dye my hair blue. :) Hardly I can play Johnny. I'm already much older than he was when left legion.

Which makes me think... Joe you really have grain of suspicion in you that Johnny and me are same person. :) I mean ... It's OK with me, but how you come to that conclusion at first place?
