66th Primetime Emmys: Water Cooler Edition – Sofia Vergara Rotating on a Pedestal

Late Night with Seth Meyers - Season 1

The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on a Monday and a month earlier this year to accommodate both the VMAs and NFL season.  But it’s okay, you’ve seen this show before.  No, really.  Seth Meyers gave a fantastic monologue but beyond that it was pretty much a lot of the same as last year and the year before.  I was so bored that I couldn’t even muster up annoyance at the fact that the President of TV (as Stephen Colbert called him) literally put Sofia Vergara onto a rotating pedestal so that people would have something to look at while he spoke.   Continue reading…

Awesome: Monty Python to (mostly) Reunite for SciFi Film with Robin Williams

Monty Python

From Variety:

Members of Monty Python’s Flying Circus are reteaming for “Absolutely Anything,” a sci-fi farce combining CGI and live action, with Terry Jones to direct and Mike Medavoy to produce.

Plans are for filming to begin in the U.K. this spring, with the Pythons voicing key roles as a a group of aliens who endow an earthling with the power to do “absolutely anything” to see what a mess he’ll make of things — which is precisely what happens. There’s also a talking dog named Dennis who seems to understand more about the mayhem that ensues than anyone else does. Robin Williams will voice the character.

“It’s not a Monty Python picture, but it certainly has that sensibility,” Jones told Variety.

Not all the Pythons are on board of course. Eric Idle is yet to sign on and Graham Chapman is, you know, dead. Still even if it’s not a Python film proper it’ll be amazing to see them… wait, hear them. It’ll be amazing to hear them all back together again.

The addition of Robin Williams will be an interesting one as well, his rather manic style may fit in either perfectly or terribly. My question is will they cast Eddie Izzard in any roles?

Either way, this should hopefully be something to look forward to.
