Tracy Morgan is crazy

leave a comment »

It is too weird:

He zeroed in on a woman in her 20s. “You look like a young Whitney Houston,” he said. “Before Bobby.” And: “You won’t catch me on ‘To Catch a Predator.’ I like grown women.”

She would not look up, and he inquired if she, too, would bear his next child, even ordering one to spec: “You know our daughter. Ten pounds, 8 ounces, and she’s going to your house when she starts crying.” He told her: “Why don’t you give me some love? You treat me like Space Ghost.”

Finally, she laughed.

The night ended at the Hudson Hotel, where Mr. Morgan danced, drank and spotted a few more prospective mothers for his daughter. Somewhere along the way, he gave his book a new title: “I’m Tracy Morgan: Let Me Live.”

Did Michael Cera Kill The Arrested Development Movie?

leave a comment »

Michael Cera has signed on to yet another movie without the word’s Arrested Development in the title.

He is now signed to play Scott Pilgrim in the indie-rock cartoon/graphic novel turned movie. It will be called Scott Pilgrim’s Little Life and will be produced by Universal. The story surrounds Scott meeting the girl of his dreams and defeating her seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to win her love

So, this means that Michael Cera will be tied up with yet another movie. This means that he will be spending a considerable amount of time promoting and doing voice work for the movie over the next year. On the other hand, this gives Michael Cera more exposure. Exposure is good because it makes the potential Arrested Development movie more bankable. Also, because it’s a cartoon, voice work won’t take a considerable amount of time.

Please answer my prayers for an AD movie. Here’s my archived post from last week about the Arrested Development movie.

Arrested Development Movie?

with one comment

Lately, I have been hearing some rumblings about an Arrested Development movie in the works. Jason Bateman has even commented on the recent swell of activity surrounding my favorite canceled TV show.

I would love to see the Bluth family back together for one last time. Now that Michael Cera’s career has taken off it may be harder to pull this off. Also, with all the buzz occurring during the writer’s strike, and now that the strike it is over, Arrested development fans may be out of luck.
