Express Checkout: 24, 1-2-3, and Mr. Show

Donald Sutherland and 24: Donald Sutherland was a little bit crestfallen that he was unable to play his real life son's father on 24 due to commitments he had with another production, but in an interview, I think he did come up with a rather plausible way that he could play such a role in the future. He suggested that James Cromwell was merely Jack Bauer's stepfather. Knowing some of the twists and turns that 24 has had over the past 6 seasons, that isn't completely implausible. I certainly think it could work.

The Remaking of Pelham 1-2-3
: Not another one. Dear God, not another remake. Although on a scale of 1 to 10 of how bad my stomach is cramping from the idea, with 1 being The Topkapi Affair and 10 being Robocop, a remake of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three is maybe a 4 or a 5 for me, although James Gandolfini, Denzel Washington and John Travolta are no Martin Balsam, Walter Matthau or Robert Shaw.

Bob and David are back together again?: The geniuses behind the oddball sketch comedy series Mr. Show, David Cross and Bob Odenkirk are collaborating on a sitcom together called David's Situation. Cross plays himself, though with the twist that he had quit the entertainment business and is now writing for an inflight magazine. Hopefully this show will prevent David Cross from complaining that he is taking a bunch of money jobs in crappy projects for a few months.
