Last evening I sat down in my bed, with my microwaved popcorn (butter flavour and to die for) and watched "Forest Gump". I'd never seen it before and it was, as I had heard, an excellent film. Along with my family, I visited Bubba Gump's in Time's Square in 2004 and that too, was excellent.

As with every new discovery, I tend to look it up on the Internet days later to get some extra information about it. I have no idea why I do it, but I guess I'm just geeky that way. Super-Uber- Geeky that way.

I glanced on (where I get all my useless trivia about TV and Films) and took a read on Forest Gump. For those of you who aren't familiar with the film, one of the characters loses his legs. Anyway, there I was, reading and mentally storing all the trivia when I came across a message down the bottom about Gary Sinise (actor who played character with the no legs). It read:

I heard from a reliable source that Gary Sinise actually had his legs amputated for the part of Captain Dan. Can someone confirm this?

I am not joking. I mean, come on! I can imagine him turning up for another audition to play an armless character and he has to have those chopped too. One word: Dedication.
