He Should Have Asked Them To Can Tom Hanks Instead

Apparently Jacques Chirac, the decidedly uncool, increasingly irrelevant and glue-haired President of France, asked Ron Howard, the man responsible for the utter disgrace that the film version of The Da Vinci Code promises to be, to consider a friend of the family for the role that Audrey Tautou landed. He also asked for a raise for Jean Reno. He didn't get either, confirming what we already knew: that Hollywood is more powerful than France, and rightly so.
Monsieur Chirac asked the wrong question, bien sur. If he wanted to be a hero to the world again (at least in his view), he should have asked them to can Tom Hanks, who increasingly looks (and acts) like a stuffed enchilada himself.
