    Interesting discussion regarding “Old Boy”. I have only seen the movie and now wonder how Spike Lee will be able to modernize this story considering the nature and reveal driving the plot.

    Re; The Zeus question: http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0000553/

    – Anthony Quinn played Zeus in what looks to be the Sorbo Hercules series.
    – John Rhys-Davies had a turn as Zeus. I think in the Vanna White movie.
    – Olivier was Zeus in the first Clash of the Titans.
    – I MUST SEE GODS BEHAVING BADLY! Walken as Zeus will kick ASS!

    While I am not sure if anyone will see this as I just got a chance to finish listening to the podcast today and this article post is already on page 3 of the website. Enjoyable show as usual. I just felt I had to throw my suggest that after reviewing I, Vampire and iZombie Matthew should next review the Darkstorm Studios comic “I, Frankenstein” that Aaron Eckhart is staring in the movie adaptation.

    Of course with all the “I”, comics he might decide to pen his own memoir “I, Matthew” the tell-all tale of his behind the scenes adventures at Major Spoilers, call centers and Gatekeeper Hobbies Huntoon and Gage Topeka Kansas.
