What IS Cosmopolis about?

Dear Rob,

It’s time to confess that I literally have no idea what your latest flick Cosmopolis is about. Even worse, every time I write it out, I accidentally write Cosmopolitan- like the drink & female magazine that teaches us “109 ways to please him down there” (I memorized them all, in case you’re wondering)

I don’t know where I was when you went up to Toronto (you’re in Toronto, right? Do YOU even know?) but you were suddenly there & all these pictures started coming out & I was so far behind I haven’t even TRIED to catch up!

I remember when I heard you signed on to Cosmopolis- specifically because Paul Giamatti is in it too & he is Mr. Choice’s favorite. I figured that was BOUND to give you some more credibility with him (sadly, so far it hasn’t) but for whatever reason, at that time, I didn’t click a link or do any research about the film. I think it kinda seemed like people knew a lot about it already- and so I figured eventually someone would fill me in without me having to do the “heavy lifting” of figuring it out myself (I just let you in on my blogging secret- I don’t actually know anything myself- I just surround myself with people who do!)

Remember when Moon asked you what exactly Remember Me was all about (<— click that) and entertained us all SO wonderfully with her guesses based on the pictures leaking from set? I’ll be begging her daily to recreate that letter about Cosmopolis (I will not even attempt to touch her brilliance) but I think of that every time I see a picture from set.

For example: Is Cosmopolis about a “new guy” who moves into the neighborhood with sleek, silky hair and sunglasses we learn are “much cooler” than Rob’s Ray Bans? Is the angst of the story about the fight between the two men about who is the hottest?

Is it about a secret tryst between two male lovers- the boss & the building’s janitor- behind the fire escape at a downtown building?

Is it about a famous celebrity, trying to hide from his fame by going through his life under the name “Eric Packer?” (Which we now officially know is the name they are calling Rob “in secret” on set)

I kinda started this letter with the intention of figuring out what Cosmopolis IS about, but then I had too much fun just looking at pictures & imagining (okay fine, and I got distracted by my neighbor’s offer of a summer solstice drink). But one thing I’ve learned from all the years at LTR is that I’m NEVER alone. and I bet I’m NOT the only one who has NO CLUE what Cosmopolis is about. ANd I’m sure there are the few LTR readers that know EVERYTHING- memorized the imdb page or read the book (is there a book?) or saw the original movie (is there one?) and everything…. Cuz That’s Normal. Both things. And if someone WANTS to enlighten me in the comments today, I’m all ears. But otherwise, I bet we’ll figure it out- eventually. Maybe for once in my Rob-life I’ll be surprised & know NOTHING walking into one of your films, Rob. “WIll there be a sex scene?” “IS Rob an action star?” “Do Rob & Paul Giamatti get it on halfway through?” Only time will tell (or else some commenter will today…)

Loving the surprise, for once,

What about you? Do you know ANYTHING about Cosmopolis? Are you okay with not knowing? Or is it just me not really caring (shh) about this latest movie of Rob’s but being happy that he looks so hot in it?

Pictures from Robsessed, where else!?

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTT, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    Dear Twilight People,

    Pattleston will wither and fade on screen amidst Pauly G’s balding head, pot belly and poor posture.

    Also, Cosmopolis is about a melodramatic teenage vampire (Giamatti) and a wolfman (Pattleston) who open dueling RayBan shops in the city and then eat each other over a feud involving a hot, awkward customer.

    You’re welcome…Peace and love, Mr. Choice

    • The Old One says:

      Mr. Choice is a genius. Thank you.

    • Stacey says:

      Brilliant! Also, Mr. Stacey would agree with you about the Giamatti, due to being a big fan. He might even see Cosmopolis with me for him. However, I swear if I have to sit through Shoot ‘Em Up with Giamatti and Clive Owen one more time…

      This being said, I do adore Clive Owen. Just not that movie.

      Ohh…fun thought…Clive Owen and Rob in a Guy Richie movie. That could be great!

  2. Vanessamdn says:

    Oh yeah! There are “a few” sex scenes in there… 🙂

  3. suziekew says:

    haha…can’t blame you for not knowing what Cosmopolis is about. The director, Canada’s own David Cronenberg (who also wrote the screenplay from Don Delillo’s book, man, there aren’t many auteurs of his calibre out there), isn’t known for making mainstream stuff, but he IS known for his uncompromising vision and quality filmmaking (see History of Violence, Eastern Promises). Rob plays a Wall Street billionaire fund manager who bets heavily against the Japanese yen on a day when he decides to go crosstown in his limo to get a haircut, and encounters a number of obstacles along the way, including his new wife, a Presidential motorcade, the shooting of a rap superstar, an anarchist protest and a man who has been stalking him.

    I found myself reading Delillo’s book and thinking “HOW are they going to make this into a movie?” But I have confidence in Cronenberg and Rob’s ability to pull it off.

    As this site
    http://www.curatormagazine.com/alisaharris/financial-frenzy-don-delillos-cosmopolis/ puts it, Cosmopolis is “about a suicidal, mad pursuit of knowledge – about the desire for immortality through information – and the crash that follows. It is one of those prescient books that resonates more today, with our own financial titans falling, than when it was written in 2003. The story is set in 2000 – pre 9/11 when New York seemed invincible – “all this optimism, all this booming and soaring,” as one character put it. When you add the shadow of 2008 to the shadow of 2001, Packer’s fall is even more spectacular.”

    • The Old One says:

      So, you’re saying basically it’s about a guy getting a haircut? Well, we love Rob’s hair, short, long, messy, styled, whatever, so I can’t wait!

  4. LOL! Definitely you’re not alone there UC! I too have no clue about the movie. Well, that’s not entirely true. I mean I do know that it’s about Eric Packer going around Manhattan in a limo and losing a lot of money and he has sex with different women along the way. Oh and he has a wife too. And apparently there’s one line, something about getting it on with those sunglasses on that fans of the book are dying to see on screen. Yes, there is a book.

    In the meantime, before the movie comes out, I’m just gonna feast my eyes on these lovely photos of Rob from the set. Really, how fiiiine does he look in that dress shirt?

  5. Kandnandb says:

    I slept thru the book but I’m pretty sure he’s a Poland Springs water salesman and the book is about him selling water bottles all day & the interactions with his customers.

    But I don’t know for sure. Something about water bottles sticks out though;-)

  6. Nelle says:

    I heard he’s in a car all day and has sex in the car. I don’t need to know anymore.

  7. Michelle says:

    I admit I ran to the library for the book when I heard he was doing this.

    The book made me go…um…WTH?!?!?!!!! One of those open ended books that I loathe. I’m reading to get the answers. If I wanted to make up my own ending I’d be an author. Annoying…

    But…he is hot so I know I’ll be there going WTH and OHHHH he is HOOOOOOOT in the movie theatre. 😉

    • Michelle says:

      PS – I still don’t know what it’s about except for him needing a haircut, he’s smart, rides in a limo and has sex.

      • danielle says:

        it’s about a billionare that loses everything in one day, but kind of learns to accept it. it’s also about the falling of the market and humanizing those people behind it. that’s what it’s about in my opinion.

      • Heidi says:


        There are so many wins in this book. Eric is a weirdo who just gets weirder, and crazier as the book continues. Interesting fact, he is married. He has a lot of sex throughout the book with many different women, but keeps encountering his wife at unexpected moments. The book is a downward spiral, genius-gone-crazy kind of story. He self destructs the entire book by never sleeping, obsessing over people he thinks are out to get him (including a person who has made actual threats against his life–hence the need for a body guard, and a pie-throwing political activist), throwing away all of his money betting against the Yen, losing his wife’s fortune, and…I just can’t bring myself to give away the best plot turns.

        The ending is nuts! And I will post all about it if you all really want me to ruin it for you.

        • Heidi says:

          And he attends the funeral parade of his favorite rapper. I can’t wait to see Rob play this!

          • Heidi says:

            In fact, I a pretty sure that Rob took this role just so he can play this scene. We all know about his rap star wannabe fantasies. It is something I would guess he and Eric Packer might have in common.

  8. Okay, I’ve tried to read the book (no movie that I know of) and read a page. Then the Cosmop pics started coming and I thought, “okay, really gonna try and read this.” It’s still not happening, British Chick lit and Fanfic are much more appealing to me right now.

    I do know it has something to do with the yen. Which was one of my preschoolers “Yy” words yesterday. They probably didn’t even know it was a real word. But I giggled and wrote it on the board anyway!

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      I wish I could enroll my 3 year old in some sort of Rob Preschool. They could play slo-mo vampire tag, learn new words like Quileute and cosmopolis, learn what a bodyguard is (Dean should show up for that lesson), and how to order from the In-N-Out menu. Maybe for graduation, Rob himself could show up and hand out diplomas and give the commencement speech. In a perfect world.

      • That would be my dream job!! I kind of do that with the nephews and niece but it’s frowned upon. I need people who are commited to the program 🙂

        • natteringyeahrobber says:

          Oh, I’d be committed. I’d be the mom who might be TOO involved in your classroom. I would be happy to volunteer how to teach the kids how to download Rob photos and save them to folders. Also how to twitter Chris Weitz (they’ll learn how to twitter before they can spell – I’m sure CW would love to receive tweets from a class full of 4 year olds!).

        • natteringyeahrobber says:

          I’m also willing to help with Rob alphabet cards. A is for Aro/AGarf, B is for Benzini/BIJ/Barnes/Bear, C is for Cedric/Clare/Cosmopolis, D is for Dick/Dean/Dumpster, E is for ‘Ello Love/Edward, F is for Fanfiction/Fifty, G is for Guitar, H is for Headboard/Hot Pocket Fort, I is for Intoxicated/Is Bothered, J for Jawporn/Jumping Rob/Jankowski, K is for Karaoke, L is for Little Ashes/Let Me Sign/London/LTR, M is for Moon/Mumblesinging/Meadow/(back)Moles, N is for Never Think, O is for Obsession, P is for Played Reese Witherspoon’s Son/Paparazzi/Piano, Q is for Quileute, R is for Robsessed/Raybans/Remember Me, S is for Sam Bradley/Stephanie, T is for TomStu/Twilight/TweedSerious, U is for Unbearably Hot, V is for Vanity Fair/Vampire, W is for WFE/Word Vomit, X is for Xtra Hot, Y is for Yelling, Z is for Zuni.

          • natteringyeahrobber says:

            U is also for UC (oops, damn lack of coffee!)

          • Nat, you rock!! Parents like you are ALWAYS allowed to come and participate. Actually I might need a teacher’s assistant. Will you apply for the job?!

            That preschool has the biggest turn out of family and friends on Grad day. Anybody know why? Might have something to do with the Guest Speaker. LOL

            And I need somebody to work on the visuals for our Alphabet Flashcards!!

          • I've been Robbed says:

            Color day at school: black and red- the official colors of books mommy reads all afternoon.

            I did find a copy of Cosmopolis in it’s unassuming black and white cover at our church rummage sale of all places! I have decided not to read it yet. I want this movie to be more of a surprise. Maybe the book will be easier to get through when I have the movie in my head.

      • ladyofthemeadow says:

        I recall that my kids’ day care friends already had the vampire-like biting skill down pat (ouch) and my guys came home with little bite marks… no further practice on the biting, please and thank you. And no venom play.

        The ultimate praise for demonstrating skill on the monkey bars, would be being named “monkey boy/girl of the week”.

        Nap time would be a problem. “Okay kids, nap time! What? You don’t nap? At all?”

        • natteringyeahrobber says:

          lulz. Parent: “No nap mats?” Ms. RFM: “they don’t sleep”

        • Hahaha! This is NOT a vampire preschool program! lol, That might be too scary for me, a fragile little human. Human preschoolers are sometimes scary enough 😉

          Confusing Rob with Edward Cullen will be the first lesson at Rob 101!

  9. LadyN says:

    You know, this is besides the point (when am i ever ON point) but Rob is always surrounded by older were-porbably-handsome-in-the-70’s kind of men.

    So, pointing the obvious that is rare… (No- NOT ONLY Rob- The guy Behind him. YUM)

    Wonder what his Job is… hmmm.

    • LadyN says:

      ps. Eric Packer be PACKIN’ IT, yo. 😉

      pss. The most vague movie ever.

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      Clearly he’s the backdoor man. Heh.

      I should give him more credit, he probably opens other doors. Rolls down windows. Maybe he also picks up sunglasses whenever Rob loses his. Maybe he also tenderly consoles the emotional women who will settle for Not Rob after a few drinks.

      Probably a tough job.

      • LadyN says:

        I wouldn’t mind settling on top of Not Rob for a sec. I mean, I’m not picky.

        I like the lost Rob glasses picker-upper guy. It totes makes a whole latta sense since Rob’s a bit scatter brained. 🙂

  10. che says:

    when i first heard about it just thought heyy i know this but how ?and then realized Colin farrell was suppose to play Eric..then couple months ago i guess, just bought the book and read in one day..yep i am that much addict..not really it’s a really thin book…anyway i didn’t like it.even can say hated..NO to the story NO to the caracter..but after Rob’s pics’ve started to come..THUD..it worths to watch just for HHH , guess..but i also belive in director and cast too 😉

  11. natteringyeahrobber says:

    I haven’t read Cosmopolis. Reading it probably makes you smarter and sexier, like Rob, but I can’t seem to actually hit buy after I put in my Amazon cart. I barely have time to read the trashy books I want to read, much less books I am to read so I can step up and claim to be an intellectual/true Rob fan.

    All I know about it is from Wikipedia (modern day Cliff Notes). Sex, limo, bottle, existential angst. I think if there was an illustrated copy of Cosmopolis with lots of Rob as Eric Packer photos shot by Bruce Weber, maybe I’d pick it up. Or if Rob were to read it to me himself (or Michael Sheen does the audio book).

  12. Brenn says:

    I read the book — it’s set in the 80s so I expect a Duran Duran song the soundtrack. Maybe even a little Robert Palmer or Peter Gabriel. I can see it now — Eric walking down the street to ‘Sledgehammer’. Yeah, that’s hot.

    • ladyofthemeadow says:

      Oh yeah. A Sledgehammer strut. I can sooooo picture that.

      – Fine Young Cannibals (She Drives Me Crazy)
      – Billy Idol (Dancing With Myself)
      – Frankie Goes To Hollywood (Relax)

      Please, no Joan Jett.

      Minuit_passé: Je suis en rougissant un peu, mais j’aime toujours “Ça Plane Pour Moi” par Plastic Bertrand. Vous vous souvenez de cette chanson?

      • Brenn says:

        Wait a minute. It’s set in 2000? Not the 80s? How could me, sitting here with an English Lit degree from a reputable 4 year university get that so wrong?

        Major Fail. Tell no one. lol

      • The Old One says:

        Too bad it’s not in the 80s after all. I wanted to see a fast montage of Eric Packer’s day set to “Ça Plan Pour Moi” as the trailer. That would have been cool. Another idea for the dustbin.

        • ladyofthemeadow says:

          Oh gawd, very cool indeed.

          I must say, I do appreciate the Internet today – I searched for the lyrics to this song. It wasn’t me, it really is true that the lyrics really don’t make a whole lotta sense. Fun 80’s song though, and perfect for a fast-forward montage.

    • Brenn says:

      I read it really. It’s still on my Nook. May be time for a reread?

      Maybe I was too blindsided by the sex scenes to care about the time frame. Yeah, there we go. I’m sure that’s it. lol

  13. minuit_passé says:

    Besides the sex, point is if you hated Water for Elephants (not read but i hate this kind of thing with a passion) chances you love Cosmopolis are hiiigh. Loved it, read it long before the Rob, you know in my pre “normal” times.

  14. Amber says:

    I’ve read the book. I’ve come to grips with the fact that 1) I will most likely hate this movie and 2) I am only seeing it to see Rob in the suit and to see him have sex multiple times with multiple women in multiple places. I think that is a good use of my $9.50.

  15. melronin says:

    Read the book…left me with an OOOOpen mouth…am absolutely looking forward to see how Cronenberg will bring it to the big screen and if it is even close to Eastern Promises or A History of Violence, I know it will be an amazing movie. I admit I love Cronenberg more since he became a bit “softer”, which is ofcourse a big disappointement for his hardcore fans…but I prefer him more realistic and less alien what can I say.

    Other than that there is only one thought dominating my mind right now…


    yes…I am THAT excited 🙂

    Dear Rob

    I believe in you!

    • Mieze says:

      ROFL, I have to admit that I had not expected that this two would ever come together…not in my wildest dreams I hoped for them to team up. I haven’t read the book on purpose, because I want to be a cosmopolis-virgin when I finally see the movie. Expectation are sky-high here 🙂

      • melronin says:

        Hope the movie will be much better than the book. The book leaves you with some sort of disappontement at the end, but am sure David will pull it off just great.

        For me the combination of Rob&Cronenberg is like a dream come true.
        First Viggo&Cronenberg…now Rob
        Someone up there must really love me…or Rob for that matter 🙂

        • Mieze says:

          I hear you, Mel and I know exactly what you mean. Viggo& Cronenberg is something that is hard to top. Maybe that’s the reason why I’m so curious how he will deal with Rob. If someone is able to get a site out of him that will suprise a lot of people I truly belive it will be Cronenberg. BTW Maria Bello was also very remarkable in a “History of Violence”…

          • melronin says:

            I think you are my kinda girl lil catwoman….
            I soooo wanna see what Cronenberg can bring out of Rob and somehow that sounds totes sexy or me is too hot here in Greece 😀

            As for Viggo…am talking loooooooove here…LOVE!!!
            The man is…simply amazing but am not on a Viggoblog here right?? LOL…

          • Mieze says:

            Unfortunatly not ;-))) Just one thing: Viggo is very smart, creative and brave. Shell i say something about him cancelling „Snow White and the Huntsman“ here?…I’ll better be a good girl 😉 Mel, you should come over and we and RG should look the film together, that would be so much fun!!!

  16. Kaybvee says:

    I liked the book, not sure how they will make it into a movie but I’m not too concerned. Honestly, I could watch him sitting in a limo IN THAT SUIT just texting for two hours.

  17. Kaybvee says:

    Awesome! I want my daughter to go to a school where noone will think twice about her Edward nap time blanket.

  18. roslynselene says:

    Read the book. I kinda liked it. It wasn’t too bad. There’s some action in there that keeps you entertained. But I don’t like the “wtf just happened?” end. Seriously, wtf? (Don’t tell me, I wanna see it on film.)

    Eric’s a crazy motherfucker but I’m a little concerned with the facial expressions Rob was making when they were eating breakfast. He had a crazy look. Were they filming? I hope not.

  19. maggie says:

    1) I FLOVE the Rob Alphabet, Nat. You rock.

    2) I’ve had a downloaded copy of Cosmopolis for months (thanks Ros). I can’t seem to get past the first 20 or so pages. I do have big plans to read it in time for the movie’s release.

    3) I have total confidence in David Cronenberg.

    4) What’s it about? Well, there’s this guy (hot guy, because it’s Rob) in hot suits and sunglasses driving aroung New York. There’s lots of sex scenes and because it’s Cronenberg and Scummit is not involved, they hopefully they will be hot and steamy.

    That’s all I need to know about Cosmopolis for now.

    Oh, and 5): Didn’t Rob look absolutely delicious in those set pictures that came out yesterday???

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      Re #5, yes, Rob looked fantastic in the set photos (KBV tweeted me some of them during a hellacious meeting I had to sit through yesterday).

      However: I don’t totally understand the fascination with the shot of just the back of his head? People were going nuts over that one. Did I miss something? I guess I’m just not a back-of-head type person. Can someone please explain why I’m supposed to change my panties over a photo of 1/2 inch of exposed neck? Is this related to some Amishward fantasy?

      • roslynselene says:

        You’re welcome, Maggie.

        Lol Nat, I think it is some sort of Amish thing. I wonder what would happen if Rob exposes his ankles.

      • maggie says:

        lol! I was wondering the same thing (re all the fuss). He almost looks like a little boy playing dress up to me in that show. Guess it’s just because I’m still meh on the haircut.

  20. sharon says:

    They had me at, “Rob has sex in limo, (I’m in) while trying to get across town for a haircut.” I could care less about the details of the movie. Acutually, the hair cut info was TMI. Nuff Said.
    When are we going to see Bel Ami? I read the book many many moons ago in college. I loved it. Another example of TMI, don’t care about plot details, not going to read the book again. They had me at, “Rob has sex.” Those three magic words are enough inspiration for me to buy a ticket to the movies.

  21. roslynselene says:

    I haven’t seen Cronenberg’s films but “A Dangerous Method” looks REALLY good. http://youtu.be/uZ7JKmcLTsI

    • maggie says:

      Did you ever see “The Fly”? That’s Cronenberg. Although I find that movie to be majorly disgusting, I recently watched it again, concentrating on the direction – rather than all the gross slime, etc. Total awesomenesss. I think Rob will learn a lot from this guy. I’m really looking forward to seeing his performance (and other body parts as well).

  22. KeepOnKeepingOn says:

    Ok, I wanna take a shot at what “Cosmopolis” is all about. Hmmm… in some pics, in the way he stands, he totally reminds me of a bodyguard/secret service agent, etc. Then, there are the shots of him with the blonde. She has to be the one he protects. So, who is she? Why does she need protecting? Well, “Cosmopolis” kinda sounds like the name of a futuristic city, so… I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that she is the president or queen/princess. She’s young, yes, to be the leader of such a place, but that’s just the thing… she’s actually fifty-eight years old. Cosmopolis is the city where people never age. You just have to drink a cosmo everyday that has a special ingredient. Eric Packer drinks never misses drinking his cosmo. He’s actually fifty-three. He’s gonna fall in love with the president/queen/princess/leader of Cosmopolis. He likes older women. Women that are around five and a half years older than him. So, anyway, the major plot twist in this movie is when Cosmopolis is invaded by Margaritaville. They want to take over Cosmopolis because they want to know what the secret ingredient is that’s put in the cosmopolitans. It’s top secret and sold for a massive amount of money to other countries, which is why Cosmopolis is such a rich and successful city. Eric has to work his ass off to protect the leader because there was a leak that she’s going to be kidnapped and held for ransom. In the mean time, while he’s protecting her, they have lots and lots of sex. I hear tell of a bottle that’s involved. How can I tie that in? Hmm… I know! The bottle is used for Eric to um… finish in when they’re in the limo. See, even though she’s fifty-eight, she could still get pregnant due to her drinking the cosmos and keeping her body forever young. In the end, Eric is forced to single-handedly kill 9 Margaritaville soldiers. He does this by drinking shots of the secret ingredient. See, as long as you drink one cosmo a day, you’ll physically stay the way you were when you started drinking it. It doesn’t reverse, but preserves. But, by drinking shots of the secret ingredient, it intensifies the effect and new cells are formed. This gives Eric super strength. So, there you have it, folks! That’s my breakdown of Cosmopolis based off the name and pictures from the set. BTW, Rob is smokin’!!!

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      I think John Waters needs to direct this.

      • natteringyeahrobber says:

        Also I think the hot guy in the green glasses is a double agent. He was hired by Packer to find truth in the claim that there’s a woman to blame. But he actually works for CathCoug, who is desperate for the youth potion so she can equalize her age with Packer’s.

  23. Katycougar says:

    Love it and tell Mr. Choice we are all smiles. By the way we will be accepting any apologies from the male folk out there when this is released. Don’t ever doubt David Cronenberg. The man is a genius. In Rob’s case he knows what he is doing.
    I see a few starting to sway. Also let Mr. Choice know that we are not all Twilight people. I smile when I say that because I feel the prickles of a few thumbs down coming my way. Bring it on Bitches. You know I love you anyway………………….
    It is definitely a man’s book. That being said I tend to like that. I find them so much more interesting then the girly books, kind of like my feelings about men as well.
    I love the way it was written and I could not have picked a better Director to bring Don DeLillo‘s book to the screen. I think the cast is perfect and this is Rob’s chance to prove to the guys that he can be a real Motherf**ker on the screen. I loathe his character. There is nothing to like about him. I can’t even feel sorry for him, not even in the end. The sex……well ……..hot, yes. The kind that we ladies pretend we don’t like………..but come on, you know you do. Have you ever Tazed a guy in the nuts after sex, and he begs you to do it. I say give the man what he wants. Add that to your bucket list.
    Begging for it…………..
    Anyway ladies I love that you enjoy stirring the pot. I know you are secretly hiding the book in your BTSNBN copy. Enjoy as you read and you made need a cold shower or a change of underwear along the way. Please don’t ever stop.
    Can you say Nancy Babich? …………………………

    • ladyofthemeadow says:

      I can’t wait to see Rob (er, Eric) have a fling with Juliette Binoche (Didi). I love Juliette Binoche! And she is a veritable cougar! I’m just insanely jealous now.

    NYR, that’s perfect! Besides the fact that he’s smokin’, Coug knows he’s totally packin’, too. She knows this because she’s seen how long his index finger is and it’s scientifically proven that the length of a man’s index finger directly correlates with the length of his dick. She doors read Cosmo, you know;)

      Ahhhh…I had heard (Australian trashy magazines) that the size of their feet directly correlates the size of their…um…how do I say this politely?…Joy Stick?! Rob has HUGE feet…lololol

    So…..never thought I’d say this but I find myself looking at the guy behind Rob. How is this possible?

    Well, I am kind of liking KeepingOnKeepingOn’s take on the book!

    But you might want to check out this Cosmopolis fan site–it’s posting a series exploring DeLillo’s work. Two posts are up, and it seems to be doing what you are looking for– the person took a university course on the author after reading the book! Fourth post will look at DeLillo themes as they play out in Cosmopolis.

    Link is to the site, but think there are links to the right, there’s one on DeLillo I think specifically.

    There’s good stuff on the casting too there.
    Hope this helps.

    Sorry I can’t tell if the site link I thought I posted appeared in my comment. This is it: http://www.cosmopolis-film.com.

    I really want to hear Rob say this line from the book…..
    “I want to bottle fuck you with my sunglasses on”

    ..yeah imagine THAT.

    Creo que UC es una mujer muy tonta que cree que es muy inteligente.
    No intentes leer el libro, no tiene nada que ver con Twilight, no creo que entiendas nada de todos modos.
