: : I don't know if anybody else saw it, but it was on the entertainment
: : portion of our late news last night on the local station.

: : Apparently DDL has announced that the Boxer will be his last movie.
: : He intends to take some time off to get back into himself and to work on his relationship with his girlfriend (is there a marriage looming perhaps?). The clip stated that he is not necessarily retiring, but
: : that he has NO plans for appearing in any more films or in public for
: : some time to come.

: : Does anybody know if anything particular happened during filming that would sway him in this direction?

: : At any rate, apparently there is no hope of seeing DDL do the rest of the series.....or any other films in the near (or distant?) future.

: DD-L did announce he was taking time off from films ...
: he says the same thing every time he finishes a film, so
: who knows? His wife is pregnant, and that may have

: I say this with the greatest affection) so you never know

: A brief aside to "Andrea" -- yes, dear -- I'm for real. Thanks

DDL retires from filming just about every year. He is always taking off to find himself or to work on his relationships. I wouldn't worry too much. I'll bet he'll be back as soon as a good script comes along.
