To be honest, this is kind of annoying. I listened to him give a speech when he did this after Laurence Fishburne had already done an intro for him. And it just did not tell me much that I could not find in the closing credits of a movie. I mentioned this during a Toastmasters meeting (I spend a lot of time listening to speeches) and I just REALLY like him. But I wanted to hear him talk about his work. Ellen’s interview with him was the most interesting I have ever seen with the guy. And he was hilarious in “Call Me Maybe” so I know he has a sense of humor. He is just so awkward sometimes … but hell, he is also rich and well-liked, so there’s that.
