There's Only One Thing That Could Make John Travolta Cool Again

And despite it sounding like a totally awesome idea if you are a movie executive who has no idea what people want, it isn't Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Or a bald head. Or an RPG. Or an ill-conceived movie nobody saw.

What is it then, you ask?

Well, it's simple enough--all he has to do is publicly renounce Scientology, come clean about the church's predatory practices and his sexuality, and retire from acting. 

Okay, it's really three things. So sue me!

Wait--he should also apologize for soiling the title of a New York Dolls album (even if it is only a live album released in 2002) by virtue of this fetid turd of a movie.

In other Travolta news, check out this gossip from imdb:
[Travolta] was due to have played the lead role in The Double, an adaptation of Dostoyevsky's novel about a man whose life is taken over by his doppelganger. He was being paid $17m and shooting was to have started in Paris in May 1996. Just days before principal photography was due to begin, he flew back to US following an argument with the film's director, Roman Polanski, over alleged changes to the script and the film collapsed shortly afterwards.
And check out these books he has written over the years:
- Propeller One-Way Night Coach: A Fable for All Ages

- John Travolta: Staying Fit!

- His autobiography--still yet-to-be-published, despite him being paid $3 million in 2004, with a 2006 scheduled release date.
But before you rag on him too hard, keep in mind that his star once fell so low he was only paid $140,000 for a few weeks' work in Pulp Fiction. Although, granted, a mere two years later he made $10 million for Michael...hate on, haters!
