Before we actually deal with the news at hand, let me just lead by saying that I use IMDb every single day and find it to be one of the most valuable resources on the internet. I am on there dozens of times a day, to double check the cast and crew of a movie I’m writing about or to read random trivia out loud to fill awkward silences at bad parties.
