He has a point in a way. It's also somewhat deplorable that they earn less then a 'big name' star when they are doing the same work, often to a better standard because they do it so often whereas the 'big names' seem to phone it in often as not.

Luke is probably the role everyone will remember him by.

It's a split between Luke and Joker. Almost everyone who has watched the DCAU Joker knows Hamil, but quite a few of the youngsters don't connect him with Luke (heck, even I didn't realize that until I looked at Hamil's filmography).

Damn Muslims.

I can't say if this is supposed to be better or worse fate for her than being stoned to death like many victims than couldn't prove the rape.

I say worse, for all they know, their attacker might rape them again while married.
But being stoned to death really? That's how they treat girls who can't prove rape in Jordan?
I'm not going there.

Words cannot express... seriously?

Isn't the law that he is to be executed or bodily maimed in some way?

Such harsh punishment these countries enforce on girls who aren't capable to live independently.
