Calm down, please!!  
Against my better judgement, I watched the now infamous interview of Scott Caan on that woman's show. I have no idea who that woman is or what she did to deserve her own talk show but you can be certain I won't be watching it - ever again. She's just strange!

Scott came across as charming, and self-effasive, and real. Anyone who watches Hawaii Five-0 knows he doesn't like living in Hawaii. This is not news. Nor is it controversial. I lived in New Jersey for 20 years and it never became HOME. It's not where I was from. That's nothing against NJ - it's just the way things are. No place is just like home.

Scott didn't bring up the crystal meth. She did. Okay. They have a problem with it there. Who doesn't?

He talked about surfing without getting his hair wet. He talked about coming out to talk to her without any clothes because his button jumped ship. She talked about how he lived in the Playboy mansion so he was used to being around naked women. AND he said his girlfriend wants to have a threesome with that Chelsea woman.

What part of TAKE A CHILL are the haters not getting??? This is a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. And now there's apparently a petition to remove Scott from the show? Really?

I know - let's remove Alex for having the "bad judgement" of hurting his shoulder and getting hooked on prescription pills!! Let's fire Grace Park for preferring Toronto to Hawaii and choosing not to be in the show full time. Fire them all! That'll teach them to be human beings with thoughts and feelings and opinions. Daniel Dae Kim can be the only one on the show - he's so far the only one "without sin."

Bottom line - CALM DOWN!!! Scott was not advocating the overthrow of the government or suggesting that Hawaii shouldn't be a state. He expressed his opinions. And was utterly charming while he did it. That woman, on the other hand, has no business having her own talk show. They're just giving them away now, aren't they?

Cautionary note: You are welcome to express your opinion just like Scott did. But if you are ugly or abusive or unkind, I will delete your comment. Then I will have you fired from the show.

Wow. Just wow.
Do these people realize that this guy is an actor? Nothing else. Nothing more. If you're using him for a role model, you're in trouble. I am not saying that Scott Caan is a bad guy. Quite the opposite. I'm just saying he's a normal human being who does a job. So he screws up. So what?

I always worry about people who can't seem to figure out that actors are just people who are just doing a job. They need to look carefully at the people they make heros of. And they need to realize that half of what was said was crap, because that's what actors do: they talk crap. It gives them a nice bit of publicity, and it gives them some sort of privacy.

And dealing with an idiot like that with grace ain't easy.

They didn't hire him because he loved Hawai'i. They hired him because he was a good actor who fit the role well. Scott is not Danny. Danny is a fictitious character. Scott is an actor, whom none of us know. Or at least I don't, anyway. And have no desire to do so. I just want to watch him be pretty and funny on the screen, like he's being paid to be.

These people need to get a real life. But that's so true of so many, many people.

Argh.

Re: Wow. Just wow.
Yes, many people do need to get a real life! You are so right about that!

Thank you for your level-headed response. This whole "controversy" is astounding to me. Slow news week, clearly!!

Re: Wow. Just wow.
Yeah. With so little else going on in the world, obviously they have nothing else to report on.

Yeah. This is a joke. And it will blow over. But in the meantime, it's an ugly reminder if the cult if the personality we live side by side with.

Re: Wow. Just wow.
I hate the cult of personality that seems to rule our lives! The Kardashians are the perfect example. Who the hell are they??? And why should we care what they wear? Or to whom they are married this week?

The interwebs is a blessing and a curse. Of that I am certain.

You know, that's a great observation. The more I think about it, the more I think Scott's comments (including about a threesome), were meant to butter her up and go along with her schtick so she'd have less chance to ask him more personal questions.

Re: Wow. Just wow.
Anything to keep them from happy. And yes, men talk trash. It's what they do. I've worked with men my entire career. And they say all sorts of stuff they don't mean. And then don't understand when you take them seriously. It's a defense mechanism.

Re: Wow. Just wow.
In all honesty, Scott had very little to say. Mostly he nodded and smiled. What was he supposed to do? Fight with her?

This is all so ridiculous.

Re: Wow. Just wow.
He certainly wouldn't have gotten anywhere by arguing with her. And, yes it is ridiculous.
