    Lol! That's funny Russell. It looks more like you've been hitting the Twinkies at the snack cart more so then working out. I called it months ago that you were going to show up to the set pudgy and overweight. You are now just starting to do something about it? I'll say this much, if it weren't for Daniel Day-Lewis portraying historical figure Abe Lincoln in Spielberg's movie "Lincoln" he would definitely be the one portraying Jor El.

              Why, when it comes to twitter posts, do they post the Twitter pic of the comments, but retype it out again? I just don't get that.
