While Weezer has, by most critical and commercial accounts, been on a downward slide since Maladroit, it makes sense that the principals of the band would examine other opportunities, and lead singer Rivers Cuomo found one…

In a comedy pilot called DeTour that he has sold to Fox. Now, it’s just a pilot, which means it’s about as valuable as, well, nothing, but it could get picked up. We’ll let you judge its worth.

The comedy focuses on a 30-something rockstar who, according to Deadline (via the A.V. Club), “unable to rationalize his success and worried that he may not have the tools to repeat it, walks away from the spotlight at the height of his fame in an effort to rediscover the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming a massive success.”

So it MIGHT be a little autobiographical. Maybe. No word on the status of the pilot, but we should know something later this year. If it gets us a respite from the torrent of Weezer releases, we’re all for it.

Hurley’s Face Graces Weezer’s New Album Cover http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hurleys-face-graces-weezers-new-album-cover/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/hurleys-face-graces-weezers-new-album-cover/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Would you pick this up from a store display? Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo announced to Spinner that the cover of the band's new album "Hurley" will feature the face of Jorge Garcia, who played Hurley on "Lost." He tries to explain but I still don't understand: "I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia -- it just had this amazing vibe. We didn't want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as 'the Hurley record' even if left it without that title, so we just called it 'Hurley.' No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face." Thank you, Rivers, for making me feel a whole lot better about my face. Unless by "amazing" you mean perplexing and slightly off-putting. Than NO thank you. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm putting the finishing touches on my "Marty" demo cover.
