Profile: Olivia Wilde

Yeah, that's right I watched the O.C., what of it? Well, at least for 2 seasons, anyway. After that it all went downhill. Which, considering the whole point is that it was a guilty-bottom-of the-barrel-pleasure in the first place means... Well it dropped somewhere, by Hashem.

Anyway, I'm usually firmly against co-programming our profiles to events, but coincidentally Ms. Wilde's new movie is coming out today, so there ya go.

    If "northern Ireland" is included, there's also former Israeli president Chaim Herzog:
