‘May he never stop making awesome movies’
16-year-old Bobby Cronendell of rural Ohio is the son of an Evangelical preacher, but he’s also a devout fanboy, which is why he asks Jesus every night to protect his idol J.J. Abrams from harm.
“Please Lord, at least keep him safe until he produces the Star Trek sequel in 2011,” Cronendell recently prayed. “I won’t watch late night Cinemax ever again, I promise.”
And those are just his bedtime prayers. According to Cronendell’s mom Judy, nearly half the time Bobby says grace before dinner, it’s a not-so-veiled plea for more action-packed entertainment.
“Please bless this food and all the wonderful people in the world, especially major motion picture directors who know exactly what the public wants,” he recently said at the dinner table. “You know who I’m talking about. Please watch over Kevin Smith too, I guess.”
