Saturday 9

Saturday 9: The Devil Went Down to Georgia

1. Do you believe in the concept of the devil? Nope.

2. What's your favorite nickname that you're called? My dad called me "Andy Panda" when I was very little.

3. What would you do if someone cheated on you? I forgave him. No, let me rephrase: I overlooked it. To be honest, I never forgave him.

4. Do you ever cry at a movie? Let's see ... "I love Brian Piccolo. And tonight, when you hit your knees, please ask God to love him, too." Sniffle, sniffle. "He's my dog. I'll do it." Full on sob. (That's Brian's Song and Old Yeller.)

5. Have you got “a ball & chain” or are you single? Are you happy with your status? I am single and I am happy. I view them as independent states.

6. Who do you got to for advice? My best friend. He's got a way of making sense.

7. When was the last time someone yelled at you? I don't remember.

8. When was the last time you spoke with someone that you met online? I haven't.

9. Where did you go on your honeymoon? OR Where would you like to go on your honeymoon? Manhattan! I'd love to honeymoon at the Plaza.

Think twice, Rob Lowe

The former Brat Packer is playing Chicagoland's own Drew Peterson in a made-for-TV movie. For those of you who aren't up on these things, Drew is our Casey Anthony.* We all just know in our bones that he's guilty of double homicide, but can it be proven?

His third wife, Kathleen, somehow drown in an empty bathtub during their contentious divorce. Then, wouldn't you know, unlucky Drew's fourth wife Stacy, disappeared! She's been gone for almost four years now. Poor Drew says she left him and her children for another man, though no other man of their acquaintance has come up missing. The pesky police refuse to just take his word for these things and now he's in prison, awaiting trial for the death of Wife #3. Wife #4 hasn't been declared dead yet.

Rob Lowe can be a funny actor and he has displayed kind of a creepy edge, as evidenced by Bad Influence. So he might be very good as Drew. And it could damage his career.

After all, the first I was aware of Mark Harmon was in the 1986 TV movie The Deliberate Stranger about Ted Bundy. He was so effective at evil that it took me 22 years to get over being terrified and fall in love with him anew as Gibbs.

*Come to think of it, I think Drew and Casey might make a cute couple. No, never mind -- at 25, she's already too old for him.
