Entertainment Weekly Loves Their Lists
And their most recent and utterly useless one as of late has named Robert De Niro the winner of their “25 Most Shameless Paycheck Grabbing Roles In History,” according to Zeenews.com:
The four-time Oscar winning actor topped the list for signing on to star in the critically and financially unsuccessful movie ‘The Adventures of Rocky ans Bullwinkle’ released in 2000 in which the animated characters Rocky and Bullwinkle shared the screen with live actors.
Coming in on De Niro’s heels in the poll conducted by Entertainment Weekly was Richard Burton, for taking on the role of a priest in ‘Exorcist II: The Heretic’.
EW has now started a list, which is ranking all past lists against each other to compete for the title of “The Top Ten Most Pointless and Least Scientific Celebrity-Related Lists in The Universe.” Actually, they haven’t, because apparently me wanting them to and it actually happening are two different things.
