Tim Robbins

Disclaimer: I don't really care about Tim Robbins or Susan Sarandon. I am excited about this, however, which was the lead-in to the story about their split in the LA Times' culture blog:

This fall, Tim Robbins launched a multi-week performing arts festival in L.A. as a last ditch effort to save his theater company, the Actors' Gang. The festival was titled "WTF?!" -- which, Robbins explained to The Times, was his own response to learning about the dire financial condition that the company was facing.

See? Theater people can get headline tabloid treatment too! It's not just pro-golfers and South Carolina governors!

Okay, fine, Tim Robbins is only important because he was in movies. But I can dream, can't I?
