great genes

In 1970, when originally offered the lead role in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory by director Mel Stuart, the great Gene Wilder accepted on one condition. “When I make my first entrance,” he explained, “I’d like to come out of the door carrying a cane and then walk toward the crowd with a limp. After the crowd sees Willy Wonka is a cripple, they all whisper to themselves and then become deathly quiet. As I walk toward them, my cane sinks into one of the cobblestones I’m walking on and stands straight up, by itself; but I keep on walking, until I realize that I no longer have my cane. I start to fall forward, and just before I hit the ground, I do a beautiful forward somersault and bounce back up, to great applause.” Asked why, Wilder said, “Because from that time on, no one will know if I’m lying or telling the truth.”

the 616 is a goddamn mess
  • inhumans:declared war on the usa bc the office of national emergency confiscated the terrigan crystal after they almost started a war w/genosha. parked their city in new york then blew it up, activating the terrigenisis bomb which spread mists all over the world and created hundreds of new inhumans and caused the mutant population to decrease/die bc of bullshit reasoning. always starting shit w/ mutants
  • 616 citizens:the inhumans are great :)
  • avengers:cause millions in property damage bc they can't stop fighting each other every ten minutes. always starting shit w/ mutants. nosy as fuck. always interferring where they don't belong. usually to start shit w/ mutants
  • 616 citizens:the avengers are amazing holy fuck
  • mutants:born with the mutant gene through no fault of their own, just trying to live their lives. caused damage sometimes but it was nearly always due to somebody else starting shit w/ them. just wanted to run a school. made their own mutant island but nobody would let them live in peace. children are constantly murdered and no government officials seem to care. literally could live in space and the avengers would still try and start shit w/ them. just want to have a nap and live their lives
  • 616 citizens:fuck mutants!!!! they should die!!! freaks!!!

Who doesn’t love Gene.

Interviewer: Normally, when a guy of your age starts acting there has to be gossip about them and at least one of their heroines. Is it because you’re already married that there isn’t any gossip about you?
Dulquer:  My ultimate girl is Amaal. I don’t know exactly why… I love her a lot… it’s been that way even before we got married. Even now, I think she’s prettier than any other girl I’ve seen. So I don’t think I’ll be distracted. I’m very much in love with her. 

This has been a Mrs. Amaal Nizam Salmaan appreciation post. Also happy birthday to her :)
