  1. 2 things:
    1. Stephen King is one of my 3 favorite authors so I would love to read a horror version of an autobiography of Benjamin Franklin.
    2. That was him in SoA?!

  2. I have only seen him on the Simpsons at all i have not seen him on the others on this list at all man i love your channel it is awesome on here and i love your videos a lot they are soooooo good on here and keep up the hard work making your videos on here guys

  3. Stephen King is the M Night Shamalayan of novelists. I can’t stand King’s stupid movies, his scripts make no sense!

    • Unfortunately, he was too busy at the time to even go around and meet the actors an director (or so they said in an article from “L’Écran Fantastique”, september 2017) Sorry, I have no idea if the article can be found in english.
      But I think it’s true, The King is unstoppable about writing XD
