Billy Bob Thornton is a ReeeeaaaaL DICK
Seriously, what did my good friend Jian Ghomeshi ever do to anybody aside from falsely proclaiming that he was once the king of Spain?
I really didn't think that BBT would ever be able to sink lower than his whole AJ-blood-vial fiasco, but I think this definitely gives that little phase a run for it's money. These are 13 of the most painful minutes you're ever likely to come across; think of the Letterman-Phoenix episode, minus the humour.
But as is the case in most instances, bad chemistry makes for fantastic unintentional comedy. Cudos to Jian for keeping it real, and for submitting my second favourite moment in Q's short but glorious history, coming a close second to the time he had the following exchange with Barbara Walters (10:30 mark):
Babs: "Where are you from, Iran?"
Jian: "Yeah...Well... I'm from Thornhill, actually..."
Thanks to Micah for the clip
