Ben Hur is one of my favorite movies. I actually talked to Heston on a radio call-in show. One of the few celebrities I have ever exchanged words with.

Great movies all around.

RIP.

True story, when he played El Cid, they reused the prosthetic wang he used to play me as a prop in Boogie Nights. They just cut it in half and let Marky Mark use it for the final scene.

I must say I loved a lot of his movies, especially Ben Hur.

President of the NRA, now I've no use for that.
