Robo-Prof?

How did I miss this?!?


Peter Weller is teaching ancient history courses at Syracuse University?!? I just saw him as one of the talking heads on a Discovery Channel documentary about engineering in ancient Rome. (And, may I say, Buckaroo Banzai was looking very dapper in a really nice suit.) At first, I thought I'd had a brain fart, misreading the text, but, indeed, it said, "Peter Weller, Syracuse University." I went online, and sho' nuff, RoboCop got a Masters at Syracuse in 2004 and apparently, they gave him a teaching gig. Too weird.

No matter where you go (for your higher education), there you are.

I have always found Peter Weller to be so. damned. sexy. Mmmmm-mm!

Oh, then you would have LOVED him in this documentary. Just looking all hot and academic and just very, very nice.

I read about this and thought "how nice." Seriously. How nice. Usually actors are such egocentric boneheads (Tom Cruise), this was delightful.

I completely agree. I remember when I first heard that John Cleese was teaching management theory classes at Harvard and thought the same thing. Good going, guys!

(Not to be cruel, but, of course, Tom Cruise would have to finish high school and perhaps broaden his mind beyond the cult of the giant space clams before he could teach. Although, apparently, he already knows everything there is to know about psychiatry and depression...)
