Badass: n. 1) A tough, aggressive, or uncooperative person. 2) Cormac McCarthy

 So the latest news is that Cormac McCarthy just "surprised" his agents with his spec script The Counselor while they were expecting his latest book.  This guy writes amazing, muscular novels that have been filling some of the gaping holes in American film that are just waiting for original, gripping stories.  And then he gets "adapted" for the screen -- which usually seems to mean watered down, or translated into screenplay format. 

I LOVE Cormac McCarthy's writing.  And I fucking love that he dropped a spec script onto his agents' desks.  No word, just ::boom::.  Make that into a movie. 

ps.  That's badass.
