If Paramount (formerly Desilu) had the rights, this guy might be in the movie.

There you go TB, bring Ray back and I might just pay $9 to see him as a Martian. Love his Jetson's type space craft but he was even better as the Devil in **** Yankees.

Hey Scott! That's pretty neat. I typed in the real name of the movie but your software changed it. I didn't even think about it at the time.

Funny you mention Marvin the Martian, I was watching Bugs Bunny's greatest hits. All too funny.

Another thumbs up for the book, I read it shortly after it came out, and I thought it was a very well told story. I didn't realize a movie was being made, the story certainly has the potential to be a good movie.

Now we know that conditions are nowhere that hospitable, and I am not even touching the radiation level due to the lack of a magnetic shield.

Thanks to recommendations, I'm now smack dab in the middle of reading the book. It's too accessible as it's the Kindle edition and it's on my iPhone 6+.....which means I just had to put the phone back in it's case and force myself to get back to work. Great read so far!

I got the Kindle version out of the library and read it on my Note 4. Good book.
