One of the tallest Scottish men and comedians I know and love but still very happy to see that he's going to be in this movie. I'm always happy to know that he's going to be in a movie. I love Billy Connolly....since way back when he had a tv series...he was so funny, I barely remember but I do know he made me laugh a lot.

He also can do the drama so well like in The Boondock Saints....good for him....just wish he did more.
