    So wait, how is this movie like a writing desk?

    Kind of neat that just today, I was watching a rerun of “The Simpsons” were they had “The Raven” with James Earl Jones narrating (guessing that was better adaptation this film). http://www.hulu.com/#!watch/31398

    This is Luke Evans’s third go-around at the Flop House Podcast. Besides being Aramis in “The Three Musketeers,” he was Zeus in “Immortals.”

    Random note, in the labels on this post, it’s tagged as “Jon Cusack,” but he spells his first name with an h.

    Even more random, looking at her Wikipedia page, Edgar Allan Poe’s wife Virginia looked a lot like Emma Watson. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:VirginiaPoe.jpg
