I don't know about this. Do you think Norton is ready for Time Travel. Nearly every actor hits a point in time where they do a film set 'back in the day', but Good ol' Eddy here has been so good in all of his more contemporary work, i just hope he doesn't ruin it like Reese Witherspoon did in Vanity Fair (not that Legally Blonde already didn't ruin her career, but you see what im saying?)
