    Prospects are probably pretty good for this one. Think SOA “unscripted” wise anyway with huge male following in all demo groups.

    Sandra saw him as a promising project that she could turn into an Oscar-winning movie. That and his hidden asset, the Vanilla Gorilla.

    Well I just watched the Oct.29 show and I thought it sucked. It’s not the show so much as it is Jesse. Just like when he was involved in the bike build off on American Chopper the guy comes off like a complete moron that has trouble putting a complete sentence together. I gave the show a shot but one episode was enough for me. He might be a good mechanic but he stinks as an actor and his personality is even worse.

    First to MikeD.,In my opinion Jesse James has far surpassed the requirements in order to be classified a “Mechanic” as would be determined by the ASE. He has accomplised much, much more, when you add to his mechanical skills the various aspects of being a fabricator of great skill.
    Secondly, I do hope he remembers the time Honda contracted him to do a special project, which brings me to a plea to Jesse,”Please use those innovative skills that God has given you, and don’t use another dried up prune of a engine.I am ,ofcourse, referrering to the over rated Harley.Jesse if you want to use an American engine, look to the Cleveland, Indian PowerPlus, Pope, or the Cyclone.Build your own design, if you must, just all your skills. You can leave the monkey simple “engine?” to the Monkey Garage.”
    Finally, to those who believe I’ve been too critical of H-D, all I will say is in the words of James Thurber(I think), “LOOK IT UP”.
