Our friends over at Page Six in the New York Post offer this tidbit:

NUTSO actor Billy Bob Thornton wants to wipe the endangered komodo dragon off the face of the earth. "More than anything on this earth, more than any being that exists, they are the creature that represents evil," he says. The "Monster's Ball" star once woke up his wife Angelina Jolie in the middle of the night and insisted they go to a hotel because he'd dreamed their house was infested with the reptiles. "If it were up to me, I'd just go to that island and kill them all," he tells the London Daily Telegraph. "I would just . . . shoot those sons of bitches."

Is it me, or does some rule exist that dictates that Billy Bob and Angelina need to be in the press every 15 days, even if it means suddenly condemning the Komodo Dragon?

I would pay hard cash to see the movie about Thornton going to that island and killing those dragons, but only if they called it, "Billy Bob's Island Dragon-Killing Adventure."
