Hate to say it, but when you hit 80, there's no guarantee you'll get to 90 (or what your health will be if you do).
So my advice is have a good time in your 80's, live it up, spend all your money, make it a great decade.
He has Olivia de Havilland as a role model.

Billy, you're an inspiration--I'll be hitting 80 in three years and suddenly it doesn't look so formidable. Keep rocking.

Thanks for the good vibes and wishes. I'm feeling great and living it up and recording audiobooks during the pandemic. Three movies in the can, a play or two coming up. If this is 80, bring it on.

Allow me to be the first to suggest Bill Weedon to be cast as Steve Bannon in the upcoming "Trump Disaster" production.

Very flattering, but two caveats: 1) I'd have to cut my hair, and unless Spielberg or Tarantino is the director, IDK. 2) They'd have to spell my name correctly. WeedEn.

Just kidding, Carol. You're scarcely the first to make that mistake. There's even a town in England called Weedon. (Leo G. Carroll was born there.)

Billy--Sorry, I should have double checked!

I can't help thinking about what kind of movie (a documentary? a cartoon?) might be made about the Trump administration. But of course we have to wait till the end of the year. And the mention of Spielberg reminds me that about the only thing we haven't yet been through is an alien invasion--from the skies, not Mexico.

Why wait?
How about a snuff film ...

Mmm--I had mixed reactions to Sellers roles, but that was one character he was born to play. Interesting to imagine what he'd do with Trump.

Damn...this is really sad and premature.

RIP Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman was impressive in the James Brown biopic.
My review is here.

Also in "Marshall", "Da 5 Bloods" and, of course, as the Black Panther. He died on Jackie Robinson Day (and my birthday). Apparently most of his famous roles were after he was diagnosed with colon cancer.
