I think of as the Big Three of giant squid. His compatriots are New Zealand's Steve O'Shea and Japan's Tsunemi Kubodera. They are all brilliant, fascinating, very different characters, and I think they ought to be in a movie together--a rugged, gunslinging movie
like The Magnificent Seven.
I wonder what actor would play SOS. and they better get Neil D for the theme music!
