Best News I've Heard All Day

From The Hollywood Reporter via Aint It Cool News:

Michael Clarke Duncan is in negotiations to co-star with Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder in director Todd Phillips' comedy "School for Scoundrels" for the Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films. Duncan would play Lesher, a cohort of Thornton's character. Jacinda Barrett already has signed on for the project, which centers on a down-on-his-luck meter maid (Heder) who enrolls in a confidence-building class in order to woo the girl of his dreams. The class ends up being more than he bargained for when he finds out his professor (Thornton) is interested in the same girl.

Rushmore meets Bad Santa? Napoleon Dynamite meets Sling Blade? Only time will tell, but Billy Bob and Heder starring in a Todd Phillips movie basically guarantees them my $10 (plus $5 for parking).

Worst news I've heard all day: Mike Myers is set to play Keith Moon(!) in an upcoming biopic produced by Roger Daltrey.

Just let that sink in for a moment...

Damn, cory had to ruin this great news. At least Keith Moon went out at the top of his game, willingly or not.

No one should ever be asked to play both The Cat in the Hat and Keith Moon. You can't possibly be appropriate for both of those parts. Those two roles are mutually exclusive.
