The cast continues to grow for Martin Scorsese's upcoming replica tag heuer formula 1 thriller Shutter Island, says the Hollywood Reporter. Max von Sydow, Emily Mortimer and Jackie Earle Haley are joining fellow cast members Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams and Patricia Clarkson in the thriller.

I think I may have an answer for you Whiskey. Because "chicks" have the physical appeal but will fizzle out of Hollywood if they don't aquire acting appeal, like all the other hasbeens from tv shows. Where guys don't. Their looks may make the girlie teenie boppers squel but they grow out of it and stop watching shows and movies for just that reason. This insight comes from my daughter, who is turning fourteen next month, and told me this when I asked her why she doesn't watch those girlie shows she used to watch. She wants more depth. So now she watches shows with me like Chuck, 24, Lost, Bones, etc.

Byron Bay - Location

For many generations the pristine beauty and natural lifestyle of Byron Bay has attracted a wide array of visitors and residents to the once sleepy seaside village.

Geographically, Byron Bay is the most easterly location on the Australian mainland and when you gaze at the ocean from Cape Byron you are often rewarded with sightings of the abundant marine life. Located on the north coast of NSW, Byron is a leisurely 2-hour drive south of Brisbane.

To experience all that is unique to this area take the time to explore the magnificent beaches and the world heritage listed rainforests. The alternative lifestyle also attracts artists, writers, and musicians, so awaken your creative senses or relax your muscles with a massage from one of the many healers. Byron Bay is more than a popular tourist destination, it is a celebration of life and a place where you can nurture your soul. To the local indigenous people Byron is known as the place of healing, or 'Arakwal'.
