In case you haven’t heard, the beloved role of Camel has been cast! Let’s celebrate!!!!! Camel is such an important part in Water For Elephants. While we won’t drink the jake, we can have a glass of water to toast. Water is a bit lame but if it’s good enough for elephants, it’s good enough for us
Everyone check out JIM NORTON!
Born in Dublin, Mr. Norton is considered one of the finest Irish actors in the industry. Most of Mr. Norton’s career has been in television. It appears to be British television because I was quite confused by the titles…my American ways shining through. Then I DID catch a few titles that were familiar: LA Law, Cheers, Star Trek: Next Generation, & Fraiser.
A bit-o-trivia: Mr. Norton is a part of the Harry Potter family like our lovely Robowski! He was in Chamber of Secrets
