Od svih glumaca iz legendarne skupine "Leteći cirkus Montyja Pythona", John Cleese je ostvario najveću samostalnu karijeru!

CraigSnyderCraigSnyderMay 8, 2013

I've liked John since the days of Monty Python (The 70's).

John used to be a vegetarian.

Oh, Man! Did he ever play a dying role or what? "Shrek 3" was 1 of them.

amber of lubbockJun 27, 2011

Nice sence of humor, Mr. Cleese! Rock on, comic man!
