Back in 2004, Fox ordered a remake of Mister Ed to pilot. The project ultimately was not picked up but its rumored that Ol’ Dirty Bastard auditioned to voice the talking horse. Now bask in the glory of that recording. Please note, he didn’t get the part. (Dangerous Minds)

HOLY SH*T: TV’s ‘Mr. Ed’ Is Gonna Be A Movie http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/holy-sht-tvs-mr-ed-is-gonna-be-a-movie/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/holy-sht-tvs-mr-ed-is-gonna-be-a-movie/#comments Wed, 05 Oct 2011 00:25:49 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=231223 I hope this paves the way for other beloved, irrelevant properties to be made into films, too!

How crazy would it be if a horse could talk to the guy who owns the horse? 

That is the plot 0f 1950′s TV show Mr. Ed, which revolved around a horse owner (Wilbur) and a horse (the titular Mr. Ed). As best I can tell, nothing else interesting happened. The guy kind of lived a boring life, then he would come home and talk to his horse.

If you have no idea or interest in what I’m talking about right now, get ready to have your mind blown all over your face.

Mr. Ed is going to be a feature film.

If you’re like me, your brain is probably hemorrhaging with questions like:

  • Will the horse be CGI?
  • If the horse IS CGI, what kind of sunglasses will they have it wear to give it “edge?”
  • Who will play Wilbur? Will it be Steve Carell or Steve Carell?
  • Why does God continually shit on film enthusiasts by allowing the people responsible for these remakes to walk unpunished?
  • How many “PETA” jokes will the horse crack?
  • Will the horse benignly flirt with a hot girl in the film?
  • If the horse DOES flirt with a hot girl, will the producers take things a step further by showing the horse f***ing the girl?
Well, these questions will all be answered as time inexorably marches towards the inevitable release date of this film, whenever that may be.
Oh, and because my editor has been wanting me to shoehorn this into a post, here’s a song called “Goodbye Horses” that Buffalo Bill dances to in Silence of the Lambs. I guess it’s not completely irrelevant here.

Pretty versatile.

It is with a heavy heart that we here at Screen Junkies must convey the news that Oscar the Parrot, star of such seminal works as Fantasy Island and Home Alone 3, has passed away.

WHY COULDN’T IT HAVE BEEN ME INSTEAD??????????

Those who knew Oscar knew that he was a bird of few words, namely “hello” and “cracker.”

However, the gravitas with which he uttered those words was the reason Home Alone 3 is held in the regard it is today. Without his avian presence, it would have just been a wildly disposable sequel that didn’t even have Macauley Culkin.

With Oscar’s contributions to cinema in mind (including his upcoming role in A Bird of the Air), we would like to take a moment and call attention to animal actors and the trails they have blazed. So join us on a journey as we examine the 9 most awesome animal actors in film and television.

(If you have “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” by Boyz II Men in your iTunes, please hit play now.)

9. Mel Gibskin

You may not recognize the awesome name, but you’ll know his work. Mr. Gibskin played the role of a creepy hairless cat so effortlessly that it hardly seemed like he was acting. He absolutely owned the role of Mr. Bigglesworth in the Austin Powers franchise, playing the character with such marked restraint that he kept audiences on the edge of their seat. Gibskin also played Rachel’s creepy cat on Friends and had the professional privilege of playing opposite Ms. Lindsay Lohan in the stripper saga I Know Who Killed Me.

8. Gidget

In the vein of Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry and Barbra Streisand in Yentl, Gidget defied gender conventions in her portrayal of the Taco Bell Chihuahua, a flawed character myopically focused on its want, need, or desire (depending on how you translate “querer”) for Taco Bell cuisine. Further, Gidget adopted a stereotypical Mexican accent so effortlessly, you would have thought the dog was played by a privileged teenager making fun of his family’s gardener.

7. Clyde

Clyde played Marley, the dog that dies at the end of Marley and Me.

Deal with it.
