Sean Penn is going to save the world. One impossible issue at a time. Once he is done with that, I reckon he'll be able to knock out a Bond role with a difference. It'll be Oscar worthy, though he won't accept his trophy at the ceremony. He is softening up, so maybe he'll send in a video message from somewhere in the company of drug king pins or from one of his projects around the world.
And once Sean Penn is done doing all of that, maybe Madonna is going to take him back.
That is, if she can get past the barrage of criticism about her mothering skills.
At least someone is here to stick up for her.
