If you’re reading this, congratulations. You’ve made it farther than I thought you would have. This is for you.

Barbra Streisand or “Babs,” as we like to not call her, is producing a Broadway musical called Gypsy that tells the tale of a famous stripper named Gypsy Rose Lee. And since H.R. 494 became legislation two years ago, all Broadway musicals must also be adapted to films. So the search for Gypsy Rose Lee is on, lest we get forced upon us an erotic Streisand which is arguably the worst kind of Streisand there is.

The film will be written by the guy who wrote Gosford Park and some Downton Abbey episodes, so if our readers weren’t sold on this project before, they sure as shit are now.

And in a recent interview for her upcoming road trip film with Seth Rogen, Guilt Trip, Streisand let loose that she’s considering Lady Gaga for the part. Seeing as how she’s not very attractive, sort of shrill, and beilderingly popular, it would make sense that Barbra Streisand sees a lot of herself in Gags.

Instead Of David Arquette, These 9 Actors Should Sign On For ‘Dancing With The Stars’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/instead-of-david-arquette-these-9-actors-should-sign-on-for-dancing-with-the-stars/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/instead-of-david-arquette-these-9-actors-should-sign-on-for-dancing-with-the-stars/#comments Thu, 25 Aug 2011 21:41:00 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=225966 Because we're tired of watching happy, attractive people dance.

Today it was announced that David Arquette will be joining the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, which is “news” only in the most literal sense of the word. Arquette is just one of many mass-marketed celebrities to appear on the show with (presumably) the goal of reinventing themselves for some professional or personal purpose.

That’s crap. The show should only pick stars baed on their unintentional humor quotient. This quotient could be an amalgam of: how strange the person looks, how seriously they take themselves, how logistically difficult it would be for that person to participate in a dance contest, and other factors that would make the show tolerable to watch.

9. Steve Buscemi

We see him dance (well) on Boardwalk Empire, but that context lends itself to taking him seriously. I want to see Mr. Buscemi dressed up in a black leather jacket with greased hair, tossing some girl in a poodle skirt around to “Rock Around The Clock.”

8. Kristen Stewart

Why? Because twitchy people have a difficult time sitting still when they are being lowered for tango dips. Also, the sour look on her face while performing the Charleston would be indicative of the duality of man, or something.

7. Peter Dinklage

Because he’s so short, you see?

Colin Hanks deserves some good luck in this business. And it looks like he’s finally gotten some: He’s landed a part in My Mother’s Curse, starring Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand. Here’s a plot synopsis, which is unfortunately devoid of mummies. Think about it – “curse,” “mother” “mummy.” They could have done something with that:
 

“Hanks will play the husband to the already cast Yvonne Strahovski, Rogen’ high school sweetheart in the pic to whom he once proposed to. Hanks and Strahovski let Rogen and Streisand crash in their house after the son and mother get caught in a blizzard.”

It’s Friday afternoon and I’m tired, so my eyes keeping crossing when I try to read that plot synopsis. I’m sure it’ll be just the kind of charming and likeable part to make Colin Hanks a household name. I’m pulling for you, Colin Hanks. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Barbara Streisand will play Seth Rogen‘s mother in Paramount’s road trip comedy My Mother’s Curse, and just thinking about that car ride gives me such a headache. I’m imagining Streisand as an overbearing Jewish mother, and slacker Rogen will probably retort with quiet wisecracks, while the audience sits and absorbs Streisand at her absolute kvetchiest. And if she sings, what then? Feh. My advice, should you want it, is be sure to locate the emergency exits before the film starts.

In the film, Rogen is an inventor who tries to sell a new product on a road trip with Momma Streisand, and along the way she’s reunited with an old flame. Hopefully, Rogen’s invention is the bubble from “The Prisoner,” which traps Streisand inside it for most of the movie. Then Rogen teams up with Harold & Kumar and we have a proper road trip. One with boobs, weed, more weed and more boobs.

My Mother’s Curse will be directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal – ugh) and written by Dan Fogelman (Fred Claus – double ugh). Yeah, this long shelved project was finally greenlit, and Paramount’s passing the curse onto moviegoers. I could plotz. (Hollywood Reporter)
