Russell Crowe to Portray Bill Hicks in Film

"I have another project based on the life of comedian Bill Hicks, which is going from treatment to draft stage with Kiwi writer Mark Staufer."

I'm so conflicted. I don't doubt Crowe's acting ability, but not for this. It just seems so very wrong.

Some behind the scenes stuff that Jerry shot from the last Hell-ephone shoot. You can see me here and there throughout the whole thing.

These were all tagged to me on MySpace from ZP's page.

I'm ready for my closeup Mr. Bonilla! )

We had Ari Lehman on the set today. He was the original Jason Vorhees in the Friday the 13th films. He's a nice guy, and a hoot to work with. He let me take all kinds of silly pictures. But this one was the director's idea. They broke out that ancient-ass phone again, and went to work:

This is the last shoot that I'll be a part of, I think. I know they're filming some more scenes next month, but I don't know what all that entails just yet. But today was a blast. I uploaded a bunch more pictures into my Hell-ephone album, so if you're curious as to what we did today:

And this is probably the weirdest thing I have ever seen:

It was totally fucking awesome. That's all I'll say, so that I don't spoil anyone. But Heath Ledger's performance blew me the hell away. He genuinely scared me a couple of times.

We saw it at the Movie Tavern here in Lexington. It's a full service restaurant/bar/theater. You flip a little switch on your table and a waiter comes to take your order. So I got a cheeseburger and a margarita brought to me while I was watching the movie. Pretty sweet.

But what made it even better was that the maitre'd was dressed as Batman, and the wait staff was other related characters. There was one each of Two-Face, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Batgirl, and Jim Gordon taking orders. And they were pretty decent costumes too, so that just made the whole thing ten times more awesome.

And then we got to see the Watchmen trailer on the big screen. I nearly exploded with geek joy tonight. :D

I spent most of this morning uploading all the pictures I've taken at the Hell-ephone set. They're in my LJ Gallery here:

It's a lot of pictures, 172 in total. And after this weekend, they'll probably double. And I'm gonna 'shoop the shit out of some of these.

For example, I electrocuted my brother:

Hee. :D

I really don't know what kind of movie I'd classify it as (you know me and labels). All I know is I want Cameron Crowe to direct it.

As for who I'd want to play, shit. I have no idea. For some reason Mary-Louise Parker is coming to mind. Maybe cause I watched some of the last season of Weeds last night. I really like her character, Nancy. She has one crisis after another and somehow still keeps going.

As for everyone else...

Jackie and Joey - it would have to be the Olsen twins, back when they were the same age. Only get rid of the perfect image, rub a little dirt on them, and make 'em cuss more. That'd about do it.

My mom would be Roseanne, no doubt about it. :p

Beth (my sister): I've always said that if Raven-Simone (or whateverthefuck her name is) was just a couple of skin tones lighter, she'd be my sister. For reference, Beth looks nothing at all like me.

My brother, Chris (Goober), I've thought about a lot, and the only conclusion I can come up with is Rory Cochrane. I don't think anyone could pull off Goob's neurotic little tics quite as well as him.

I dunno about anyone else. Tony really really wishes he was Robert Downey, Jr, only without the crazy drug problems. I can't really think of anyone off the top of my head that would be a good representation of him.
dextra: (Heroes - Brains)
I posted up another picture of me from the Hell-ephone set over the weekend, and you can see that one here:

But I also have these, of others goofing off in the chair, and I thought the were funny, so here you go. :p

I give you no further explanation.

So now the only people that haven't been informed of my impending departure is the bosses. That's because I'm waiting for Benny to come back from his vacation before I spring that on them. I think he comes back on Monday, so that will give me about 3 weeks from then.

Blah blah, babble babble )
dextra: (Firefly - See Jayne)
Our biggest client is in the office today, which always sends Benny into a tizzy fit. And for some reason, Ashley is M.I.A. This is not good. It's already almost 10:00, and no one can seem to get in touch with her. Benny's had me call her half a dozen times, and I've left messages nicely asking where she is, meanwhile texting her going "Where the fuck are you?!"

Thankfully I'm not particularly busy today, so I got sent out to go pick up some pastries for breakfast. I was thankful to get out of here for a few minutes. Hopefully we'll all get out of here early today. I'd really like to get the car packed up while I've still got some daylight.

There were a couple of gifts on my desk when I got here. Ed had gotten me a candle that smells like almond biscotti (in other words, YUMMO!), and Benny gave me a hand painted wine glass that says "It's five o'clock somewhere" with the recipe on the bottom. It's really cute.

I was channel surfing last night and came upon a movie about the Marquis de Sade that was just so utterly ridiculous that I couldn't stop watching it. I didn't know anyone that was in it aside from...oh, shit, I can't remember his name. He was Gimli in the Lord of the Rings movies. But anyway, he was a sherrif or magistrate of some sort. But the acting was terrible, the story was just fucked, and de Sade kept sniffing his hanky so much that I wanted to shove it up his nose. I saw Quills a couple years ago, the one with Geoffery Rush, and that was great. It really messed with your head. This? Nothing like that. The biggest act of sadism in that movie would be forcing someone to watch it.

Well, I need to go medicate the boss before he loses his shit. *sighs*

I had Tex-Mex eggrolls for breakfast. The boss' son got married over the weekend, so he brought in two big bags full of leftovers, including half a layer of wedding cake. I'm saying hello to that later. :D

Just for no real reason at all, I bought nothing but vegetarian food when I did my grocery shopping yesterday. I made a teriyaki tofu and veggie stir-fry last night that was mighty damn tasty. I think my stomach knows it's going to be going into the onslaught of holiday food next week and is going into rest mode to prepare. Food is a sport in my family.

Family news that's good for a change. )

Since my commentary of the She-Ra movie was fairly well received, and it was really fun to do, I think I may start doing that as an occasional fun thing to do. So I'd like for you to tell me what movies you'd like to see me have a mental and verbal hernia over. No guarantees that I'll actually do it, but I have Netflix, a dreadful social life, and access to alcohol. Next on my list is The Care Bears Movie, as suggested by [ profile] j_malachai.
dextra: (Squee - teh freakiness)
I found this at Barnes & Noble earlier and had a total squee-fit. So to celebrate, I'm going to do a play-by-play commentary of the film. Keep in mind two things:

1. I've got a bottle of Zinfandel and nothing better to do.
2. I haven't seen this in over 20 years

Let the games begin. )

The Iron Man trailer is up on Apple Trailers. *happydance*
dextra: (300 YELLING)
Potter fans, if you don't wish to be spoiled, get off the internet as of yesterday. I've already found the book online (albeit photographed pages of the book), and I've seen a few assholes sporting spoilerific LJ icons, so beware and Adblock like a mofo.

A hangover, an emergency theater trip, and piracy. )

I'm now dragging my ass. I had a headache last night, and only had Excedrin Migrane, so the caffiene kept me up and I didn't sleep well at all. I ended up getting out of bed half an hour before my alarm went off.

...I know there was something else I intended to mention, but it's escaped me now. *shrug* Oh well.
dextra: (Natalie sez you a beeyotch)
Dru! You didn't tell me it was THIS BAD.

Click here to have your childhood ruined. Again. )

Also, WTF Jason Lee? He wasn't content to be involved in Underdog (which I'm now and forever referring to as Collossal Faildog), now he's gotta go and do this too? *headdesk*

Fucking Hollywood. Apparently good, ORIGINAL ideas are so hard to come by that they have to go and find stuff from my childhood to destroy. The only thing I can hope for out of this is that they might have a decent story. But seriously, does everything deserve a live action movie? The Chipmunks were believeable because they were a cartoon. Some toons from the 80s were just begging to be made live action. Transformers, GI Joe, hell, even Jem. All of those could make kickass live action movies (and from what I've been hearing, the TF movie is killer). But are animated (and I mean celluloid) movies now a thing of the past? That makes me sad, if that's the case.

I'm thankful that I feel somewhat better than I did yesterday. I'm still queasy, and my headache keeps threatening to come back. Especially with all the drilling and hammering that continues to go on behind me. I wish they would go and work on the other side of the building for a while. Or at least on the other end of the wall.

This is where I come from... )
