Tool of the Month: Christopher Roller

Yeah, I know it's old news, but I just can't help but report on the ongoing lawsuit against Copperfield and Blaine from Master Tool Douchebag, Christopher Roller!

David Blaine might be a master magician, but he can't make a lawsuit disappear. The 32-year-old entertainer has been sued by Christopher Roller, a Minnesota man who claims Blaine stole his "godly powers" to perform his magic.

In the lawsuit, obtained by the media, Roller is asking for more than $2 million. If this all sounds familiar, it's because Roller has also sued another mega-magician: David Copperfield. That suit claimed Copperfield did not get Roller's permission to use his powers.

Roller's earlier suit directed readers to his Web site for an explanation of his life. There, among other claims, Roller says he was the inspiration for the Jim Carrey film, "The Truman Show." The site also has several pictures of Roller under a banner that reads: "You are looking at the face of God. Don't confuse this with the face of cod, like the fish."

Roller also made outrageous claims about other celebrities, including Tom Hanks, who he claims is set to appear in a film about his life. Roller also claims that Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates will be his running mate in the 2008 election.
