We’re impressed that Josh Hartnett (top photo) is taking on the challenge of appearing onstage in the Tom Cruise role in Rain Man in London. Stage work can be grueling with low pay, but a great learning experience. Recently Josh turned down the starring role in a new movie about hot looking but drug addled jazz trumpeter Chet Baker. (bottom photo) Baker’s moody music and life ended tragically in 1988 when his cause of death was listed as “defenestration.” He jumped out of a window. Mesmerizing Chet was the James Dean type when he was young- it would be great if they offered the part to James Franco.

    Josh Hartnett always looks like he needs a shower. He bears an uncanny resemblance to Tommy Lee Jones. He is also rumored to be Suri Cruise’s biological father, though most people think it’s Chris Klein.

    According to some other blogggers, James Franco is a closeted homosexual. Janet do you know if this is true?

    Suri Cruise’s biological is John Travolta. Look closely. Anyway, Josh Hartnett is obviously doing the smart thing. It’s not so much about having a learning experience. Why would he want a theatre learning experience unless he intends to give up film for stage? I would say it’s all about getting positive (he hopes) theatre notices from the notoriously brutal London theatre critics who only anoint the best there is. If Hartnett can get even one good notice from the wonderfully picky Brits, the snobs in Hollywood who quiver with delight even at the sound of the coarsest English accent will line up to cast Hartnett in their serious movies. GOod for him. I hope he nails the role. I met him years ago and intereviewed him for about 20 minutes when no one else was interested (he wasn’t famous yet). He seemed like a nice guy, so I’m pulling for him.

    Josh Hartnett is the likely culprit for bio-Dad. The John Travolta rumour is ridiculous. Could be Chris Klein, but the timing really points to Josh.
    Katie’s belly button protruded when she was two months pregnant. That absolutely does not happen. She was probably more like four or five months. Her belly was always changing, sometimes big, sometimes small. She probably had Suri in January, and wore a prosthesis after that. (I wonder if she lent her prosthesis to Nicole?) This is also why the pictures of Suri were a while in coming. She was three months old on her supposed “birthday”. Remember her birth certificate took a while? That is highly unusual.
    For some reason, when the news came to her “people” of her pregnancy, Tom’s “people” were told and this arrangement was made. This would help Tom continue to live in the closet, and Katie would not have to face the shame (is there still shame?) of having a child as a result of a fling.
    This is my opinion. I think I am right, but it is just opinion.

    Josh Hartnett and Ashton Kutcher are brothers from different mothers. You can go to yahoo groups where their father has started a group and is telling all.
    The pictures don’t lie, I saw them myself.
    It says Ashton was conceived on a jail break.LOL
    I hear the biological father wants to see the play in London . He was arrested at premeir of 30 Days of Night at Manns chinese theater.He says he did a DNA test with Ashton Kutcher in Sept 2007. He also says that he “The Father” was a Playgirl centerfold in Sept 1980.

    Josh Hartnett has passion and..He should pick roles that moves him and fits his style and taste and it is okay to turn down roles that are not his type of role to choose but..How depressing to kill yourself and take your own life but there must had been something that made him! Not want to live and to just end it all and this goes out to Chet Baker story is a real bummer and in his life..He must had felt alone and that no one really cared about him. Taking your life is wrong and all people should just leave it up to god and leave when he ask you to come and that could be anytime.

    People kill themselves for all reason..Life is really hard or bad things happen to them or they simply where not there for some one and something bad happened to them and or bills or frustrations and not wanting to be here on this earth to worry about things but the role must not had been right for Josh Harnett to turn it down.
