The Samurai? I wonder if they'll be a samurai in it.

I just wonder if it's going to be anything like The Last Samurai with Tom Cruise....that was a good movie. It brought back my respect for Tom Cruise as an actor...he really put a lot of hard work and good acting into that movie. If it's going to be a true historical piece then I like stuff like that also.

Not sure about The Hustler. The Paul Newman version is a CLASSIC.
