In other news, Charles Manson tapped for lead in Ghandi remake...

Seen pretty much everywhere I looked...

Jane Fonda to play Nancy Reagan in 'Butler'

As far as I can tell, it's a movie about a White House butler. Seriously. Can't wait to see who they'll cast as Ronnie - Al Sharpton, maybe...

This is the sort of movie I was just born to not go see.

I'm trying to figure a way that wasn't intended as a deliberate slap in conservative faces... and it just ain't comin'. They don't even have the rationale of casting a good actress, unless she finally developed some acting skills when I wasn't looking (and since the article said her last pic was with Loser Lohan, I'm betting against that possibility).

Really makes me glad I don't bother looking at movies. :) I mean, generally speaking. The original release of Braveheart was my last theater movie... So I don't think I'll be making an exception for this one.

Sheesh. The last movie I saw in a theater? I think that was "Starship Troopers" (yeah, yeah, I know; but my friend wanted to see it, and he was dying... it was one of the last movies he went to see).

Added: And my last comment was on topic because ST was pretty much a slap in Heinlein's face.

It's just such a cognitive disconnect to imagine Fonda saying those infamous lines from the Bahbah Wahwah interview...

"Ronnie says, and I must agree...."

Now com'on, doesn't that just put a smile on your face?
*snork*

Oh cool! Maybe we can get Sarah Palin to play Hanoi Jane in a movie. Karma finally took out Teddy Kennedy, what the hell is it waiting for on this bitch...

Carl-Bear said...

Regardless of her (many) faults, Fonda apparently does take considerably better care of her health than did Ted "Whaddya mean he was sober? Really?"* Kennedy.

-sigh-

Just say no, Joel.

Answering the question: "How can we make a movie about the Reagans that no one will go see?"
