We Phil’s get little respect. No superhero, or just plain ol’ hero, is named Phil. If you ever see a guy named Phil in a movie, he’s about to get shot. Or he’s gay. Or even worse, he’s straight-but-should-be-gay. And not manly bear-gay either, but metrosexual-gay.
Phil’s are weaselly, annoying, arrogant, short, supporting actors, geeky-but-not-in-a-good-way, about to get shot, gay, or all of the above. On the plus side, we’re often wealthy, educated, possibly royalty, sensitive to women, milky white, funny, having large genitalia, doing well with “the ladies”, or liars.
Though Phil’s hate being Phil’s, we still think our name is cooler than “Caleb”.

A mob boss named Phil!?!? That may void my whole point.
Could be the best actor working today.

Total Recall, Blade Runner, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly, Screamers, Ubik, are just a fraction of his writing.
A special HALL OF PHIL SHAME award goes to Anthony Hopkins for using middle name instead of his real first name, and to Johnny Knoxville for changing his God-given name to the coolest name ever.
