Butz in the Seats!

When I read about the hoopla about Norbert Leo Butz being thrust on-stage with the occasional script in hand or prompt, I think...

Slow news week!

This guy had no time to rehearse (especially by Russian Standards TM!) and he's working hard. It isn't a favor, it's his job, and it's not always an easy job. Tremendous pressure on the guy. Better him than me.

Bravo, Norbert Leo Butz! You have balls the size of Neptune!

That is all.

Norbert Leo Butz can do whatever he wants after his priceless Tony speech for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: "I was so happy when I heard my name just now -- because I finally got the joke!"
