So, I heard some guy named Tom Hardy is playing me in a movie…why are they making a movie about me? All I’ve accomplished for myself is having an incredible book series, written by my good friend Tom Clancy, and a world renowned video game series. Nothing too spectacular.
Aw well, no matter. He better do a good job, otherwise, there will be problems. Major problems. Like, the kinda problems where I just got a new silencer for my pistol and I’m not sure how well it works, and I really wanna try it out.
Those kinda problems.
