I never thought I’d say this, but I’m getting very emotional over a couple of turkeys. This week, President Obama carried on the traditional turkey pardoning that happens around Thanksgiving. Each year, the President pardons a turkey so that they can live long and prosper. Aka not end up in our Thanksgiving feasts. This year, Obama pardoned not one but two turkeys named Cobbler and Gobbler so that they could be set free into the wilderness to live out their turkey dreams. But there is a sad part to the story. Brace yourself.
Last year, the President pardoned a
poor soul turkey named Peace. The turkey died this week because of a weekend-long illness, which meant she had to be euthanized. Despite this sad news, people can only seem to focus on the controversial aspect to the story. It seems very mysterious to some that Peace would die in the exact same week that her fellow turkeys were pardoned. They’re probably imagining a scene like this:
Whatever the case, it’s sad that one turkey died while the others got to live.
Watch the turkey pardoning here:
The legendary film director has said that he believes Rupert Grint, known more commonly as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, could be the next big thing in male acting, reports PerezHilton.
“I thought [Grint] was a great actor in the Harry Potter movies,” Scorsese reportedly told sources. “In a lot of scenes, the boy stole the show.”
Scorsese explains the importance of branching out into different roles to avoid risk of being typecast as Ron Weasley forever.
“He will always have respect for the movies that gave him such a huge break, but at his age it’s important he doesn’t become a typecast,” the director said. “He has to do something really out of his comfort zone in the next few years – play a gangster, play a dirty cop, play a kid with learning difficulties. I would be interested in working with him.”
“I would have no issues casting him as a gangster, he is a very talented young man,” he continued. “When Leo [DiCaprio] was in Titanic and Romeo and Juliet, nobody saw him becoming a bad ass in movies like The Departed. But he has become one of the greatest actors of all time. The very same could be true for Rupert.”
Strong words from an important man! Pressure’s on, Rupert!
