January 2008[edit]

Didn't Mr. Hurt win the academy Award for "Kiss of the Spiderwomen"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 158.59.131.165 (talk) 16:24, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

  • Are the actors William Hurt and John Hurt related? Jeremy706 (talk) 20:55, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

According to E!, Yahoo! Movies, and other sources, William Hurt does have a brother James (b. 1951), who lives in Vermont (citation needed), but not the famed British Actor John Hurt from such films as Harry Potter. (corrected by --129.67.117.78 (talk) 17:33, 24 January 2009 (UTC)).

Politics[edit]

The brief portion about his political stance in the 2008 presidential elections is unsourced. And, as it stands alone, I don't see how it is relevant to the rest of the article. Unless Mr. Hurt has contributed in a demonstrably significant manner (in which case the political part should be expanded), his political stance seems irrelevant and should be removed from the page.

NPR Interview[edit]

In his interview with Terri Gross on NPR's Fresh Air, Hurt said that as a child he spoke words in "Guamanian" before he spoke English, but his pronunciation of the language's name is unclear. Probably he meant Chamorro. Bruce Swanson 00:36, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

Toronto Film Festival photo[edit]

Why. Huh? Why.

There are no other photos available except this old one from the Toronto Film Festival?

Why this insidious secret conspiracy to ingrain Toronto into the mind of the world to think that “Canada” is synonymous with “Toronto”.

What are we, some banana republic?

One giant megalopolis surrounded by a million square miles of jungle? Like Peru or Bolivia or Ecuador?

I know that it is part of this secret conspiracy by that Canadian woman who is on the Wikipedia Board of Directors, and pretends to promote ‘canada’, but she is really just promoting Southern Ontario and Southern Quebec.

It’s bad enough that the Blackberry, supposedly ‘canadian’ is really made just outside Toronto. And that all our car factories are within 4 hours of Toronto. And that all 5 of our biggest banks are in Toronto. And that half our universities are within a few hours drive of Toronto. And that our stock market is in Toronto. And that most of our aerospace industry is in Toronto. And that almost every ‘thinking’ job in Canada is in or near Toronto ... even though the country is 9 million square kilometres.

So now Toronto is secretly stealing away the title of “Hollywood North” from Vancouver, thanks to this Wiki BoD woman from ‘canada’ who is really promoting Southern Ontario?
