FRIDAY, JULY 18

COLUMBO---Mark Ruffalo confirmed he is in talks to star in a movie remake of the classic detective series that starred Peter Falk. Ruffalo tweeted that he talked to writer Ed Solomon (MEN IN BLACK), " Ed Soloman (sic) approached me on this about a month ago. We are thinking a movie." The original series/tv movies of 69 episodes ran on NBC and ABC.





GAME OF THRONES---spoiler alert (see below).

PIXELS---photo released from the sci fi comedy movie starring Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage and Kevin James. Aliens misinterpret signals of old 1980s video games from Earth as an invasion of their planet and retaliate by invading Earth. The President of the United States has his old friend, the video game champ and his team, attempt to defeat the alien invasion.





LINDBERGH---Paramount Television miniseries underway based on the aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh biography LINDBERGH. Dustin Lance Black is the writer, and Leonardo DiCaprio is the co-producer.

SONS OF ANARCHY---the final season premiers on September 9 with a 105-minute episode.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW---photo released of Sarah Paulson's character, Dot and Bette.





TNT---the network renewed THE LAST SHIP, FALLING SKIES and MAJOR CRIMES.

GAME OF THRONES---Sean Bean commented on the hopeful possibility he may return to the series in flashback scenes for Season 5 via Bran's heart tree connection, "Oh, yeah, yeah! And I'm his father, so that would be great fun!
Just to go back to that for a while, it would be such fun to do. It would be great! It would be bizarre, but it would be great! So I guess if they're going to do flashbacks, then yeah!"
He commented that the flashbacks were just a theory, "But it's a good theory! And that should happen, shouldn't it? I've definitely got some unfinished business that needs to be resolved there. (Spoiler alert) I'm obviously not Jon Snow's dad. And you need that to be revealed at some point, don't you?
So Bran would kind of be the one having the flashback, and he would see Ned praying, right? And revealing those things? You never know what those guys are going to do with that. It's got to be something special. But I'm into that. I certainly would be into that. Print that! Give them a nudge. Hopefully I'll get a call soon."

LINDBERGH---Paramount Television miniseries underway based on the aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh biography LINDBERGH. Dustin Lance Black is the writer, and Leonardo DiCaprio is the co-producer

This has possibilities. Not only the Atlantic crossing, but the tour that came after in which Lindbergh met his wife and cemented his historic standing. The practice of mounting multi-national emblematic identities onto a self-representational panel was certainly maintained by Lindbergh on the Spirit Of St. Louis. That graphic method of promotional association actually propelled the plane and Lindbergh into the age of modernity, as much as anything else, to my own sensibilities.

The original plane is housed at the Smithsonian, its clone used in the Jimmy Stewart movie is on display at the Henry Ford Museum in metro Detroit.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII---Christina Chong (24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, DOCTOR WHO) has joined the cast in an undisclosed minor role.

That's the second 24: Die Another Day bit player to be cast in the movie (the other being SW7 lead John Boyega). Maybe Disney felt so good poaching Star Wars from Fox, they decided to keep the good times going.

You know, that plane and everything about it is the prototypical example of mind over matter that I can think of. It's story is none other than that of the American Dream at the zenith of it's greatest moment. You could argue the toss with Apollo in terms of significance as much as you like. Lindbergh was there first. His book, Spirit Of St. Louis, is as much about self-empowerment and real entrepreneurial grit as well as self-determination as it is about the scientific brilliance needed to carry out his unique achievement.

I look forward to the recreation of his American First speech in Des Moines
You know, the one where he blamed the JEWS FOR TRYING TO GET THE USA INTO WWII
and singlehandedly destroyed the isolationist movement and his own reputation (FDR called him a "copperhead")

I already "signed" Sean Penn to do the role (with Tom Cruise as the murderer) years ago in the WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN... thread.

You have to take the rough with smooth. After his political self-immolation you could have him getting back to his roots in WWII by helping to extend the range of the P-38 Lightning using fuel/air mixtures and 'P' factor that only Lucky Lindy would know about.

Oh yeah!
He also shot down several Japanese zeros even though he was decommissioned.
Fascinating life!

I have to strongly disagree, he's a fine actor and I'm sure that he'll do a very good job.

BUT you seem to forgot that COLUMBO has pretty much already been remade for the 21st Century..

It starred Vincent D'Onofrio and was called Law & Order: Criminal Intent...

He was doing COLUMBO and doing that rather well IMHO.

Any resemblance between Columbo and Criminal Intent is totally nonexistent. (IMHO)

Only if you are blind Eric..

As someone who WATCH IT, that he was doing a 21st Century version of COLUMBO and a rather good one at that.

Leave in the past all you wish, I'm just saying that I'm not against someone taking another crack at the character.

Peter Falk is no longer with us and it's been 11 years since the part last.

So all I ask is that someone do a good job.

Paul Giammatti or Philip Seymour Hoffman? Yikes.

Man, am I relieved you are no where near casting this role.

I did watch it. And there is no similarity between the two in character or performance nor did Columbo ever have any of the more bizarre trappings they intruded in that show like Olivia D'Abo as a Moriarty like character (you want to liken his character more to Holmes, I'll buy that argument to a degree though it always came across as a forced attempt in the extreme)

A proper analogy is to note that Columbo was a modern take on G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown, an author incidentally that I've READ. (An exercise I doubt you ever find much time for)

And I'm not averse BTW to seeing someone else play Columbo. It would have been nice to see the real Starbuck, Dirk Benedict's take on the part, when he played the role in a recent English stage production of the original play "Prescription Murder".

Do you think that, despite Lindbergh's pro-Nazi stance up to and before U.S. involvement in WWII, they'll include the fact that he later had children by 2 different German women, in what amounted to additional marriages, beyond his association with the redoubtable Anne Morrow? (She eventually got fed up with him, and is not buried next to him on the grounds of the home they shared on Maui, as I recall.)

The subject of Lindbergh, if looked at historically, can be most prickly...

Lindbergh certainly has his dirty laundry. Just like certain lionized members of the entertainment industry who were just as passionate about the foreign ideology of their devotion as Lindbergh was to his.
