  • From the Films: A Fictional Future Presidential Cabinet (2012 Edition)


    Back in December of 2008, I imagined a world in which I had been elected President of the United States. In this scenario, I selected my cabinet members straight out of the film world.

  • Dream Cast: 80′s TV Shows


    New feature here at RowThree (I always say that and then never come through with follow up volumes) is the dream cast of a particular film or genre. For the innaugural volume, I’ve decided to cast three popular 80′s TV shows should they ever become a big screen reality (I know a couple of them are actually in the works). If I were in charge and had an endless budget, here’s how I would cast the movies. Main choice in bold with some alternates in parantheses should my first choice not be available or were to turn the role down. As an FYI, I would be trying to make these seriously cool action movies; not a lame comedy adaptation like the Stiller/Wilson vehicle, “Starsky and Hutch”…
