One of the running jokes in Mike Judge’s cult classic comedy Office Space comes at the expense of the unfortunately named character Michael Bolton (played by David Herman).
Now Michael Bolton—the real Michael Bolton—has helped to recreate some of the scenes from Office Space with himself now playing the character Michael Bolton. Indeed, this is something you’d think would have happened many years ago, but hey, better late than never.

For it’s annual Cast Reunions issue Entertainment Weekly has once again assembled the stars of several notable films and television series for retrospective portraits. The magazine has also posted videos from four of the photo shoots on its website: The Princess Bride; Aliens; Fatal Attraction; and Office Space.
The videos make for a good watch and it’s cool to see most of the cast members of some of my favorite movies getting together to reminisce about the good old days. One thing that struck me as odd was Cary Elwes’ lack of a British accent in his interview for the Princess Bride shoot. Is he going Christian Bale on us?
There are plenty of movies about revenge — Sweeney Todd, Revenge of the Nerds, Mad Max, Death Wish,Kill Bill, every third or fourth movie in an action franchise, and most recently, Universal Pictures’ Wanted, which comes out on DVD this Tuesday, December 2. Then there are other films that contain specific moments of satisfaction-guaranteeing payback in them.
In the action-packed Wanted, James McAvoy stars as Wes, a meek office worker whose frequent anxiety attacks make it difficult for him stand up to his abusive boss, his backstabbing best friend, and cheating girlfriend. But Wes’s life is completely changed one day when he meets the sexy assassin Fox (Angelina Jolie), who takes him under her wing and into the Fraternity, an Order of assassins. The payback begins when Wes whacks a computer keyboard to his best friend’s face, sending the letters F.U.C.K.Y.O.U. flying into the air; it ends when Wes discovers the ultimate betrayal against him and enacts a vengeful plan that, let’s just say, involves explosives and lots of guns on those who wronged him.
To coincide with the release of Wanted and its badass moments of comeuppance, the Geeks of Doom gang got together to pool their favorite payback moments in film.
