As part of Todd’s desperate attempt to clock in 12 podcast episodes in 2014, he and Skelton day drink and talk about once great comedians who stopped being funny. Plus, listener-submitted movie news and a whispering bit that is used too much. Plus, some nonsense about Steven Seagal doing dinner theater.

This time, on a very special episode of The Film Pigs Podcast:
What’s better than a Film Pigs episode chock full of popcorn? An episode where special guest J.D. Ryznar returns to give everyone the scoop on how to become a powerful Hollywood writer, that’s what!

MGM and the Farrelly brothers are closing in on their cast for “The Three Stooges.”
Studio has set Sean Penn to play Larry, and negotiations are underway with Jim Carrey to play Curly, with the actor already making plans to gain 40 pounds to approximate the physical dimensions of Jerome “Curly” Howard.
The studio is zeroing in on Benicio Del Toro to play Moe. (from Variety)
My brain is preventing me from having an emotional reaction to this news, clearly protecting me from the inevitable confusion embolism.
