"The Sahara is not just the classic dunes of The English Patient. The majority of the running we did was over vast plains of sand, gravel and rocks the size of tennis balls... Blow a knee out on the overnight stage, and you’d have to pull your emergency flare to call the helicopter. Blow it in the middle of a plain, and you’d have to wait for a passing marshal’s Land Rover to pick you up...It was only the first day, and people were already being withdrawn by the doctors for foot trauma." more inside

FULL DISCLOSURE: This is research for an article I'm writing; usually I don't reach out for other opinions, but the subject is so general... I'm not looking for the latest teen-queen-lip-syncher or reality-show-hunk; I'm looking for actors, singers, comedians, "personalities", even writer/creators who have had long successful careers in spite of an obvious lack of real talent. I'm thinking William Shatner (YMMV), but I could go as young as Ben Affleck. No dead people, please.
