Pre-“Lost” Quick Hits! Bonnaroo Goes Mellow, More Originality From NBC, & The Creepy Neighbor Kid From “American Beauty” Comes Clean

There will be some more thorough “Lost” observations later, but the fact that Mac (Rob McElhenney) from “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” was back as Aldo is just pure greatness. If only we could get more references to “bitches”, “banging”, duct tape, and/or a Green Man appearance on “Lost”…

  • Captain Phil is dead. It looks like last month’s stroke finally caught up with him. What a drag.
  • It’s not like I was going to go to Bonnaroo to begin with, but the fact that the Dave Matthews Band is the top act just cements it. The really sickening thing is that not only are they top billed, but Kings Of Leon is billed higher than Stevie Wonder. You gotta like the inclusion of Phoenix, Tenacious D, The Dead Weather, Dave Rawlings, Avett Brothers, The National…oh, just check the list.
  • If you have ever asked yourself, “Whatever happened to Wes Bentley?”, you may want to start over and ask yourself, “What the hell am I doing with my life?“. According to this post, Wes has been spending time filming plastic bags floating in the wind…but these bags were filled with heroin.
  • While walking out of the theater after seeing the first “Mission: Impossible”, I believe I declared it the most awesome thing I had seen of all time on that day. Then…the sequel. Terrible. J.J. Abrams’ saved the day on the third installment and now, he’s going to try to do it again. Tom Cruise will once again be playing himself, err, Ethan Hunt. Hooray.
  • When I was a kid, I watched the Disney movie “The Black Hole” constantly. It was on awhile back and I watched some of it. Man, I must have been an easily amused/dorky kid. Anyway, the guy that is directing the “Tron” sequel, Joseph Kasinski, wants to reboot “The Black Hole”. See? Hollywood has zero fresh ideas…but this one they need to totally do. Get Maximillian Schell, Robert Forster, Zombie Anthony Perkins, all of them.
  • There is a summary of the Muppet movie that Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller have written. It sounds like a big-time throw back to the old school Muppet movies. The working title? “The Greatest Muppet Movie Of All Time“. I am sold based on that alone.
  • Finally…it’s good to see all these new faces on NBC. I sure hope this Jay Leno guy is given a shot to succeed on “The Tonight Show”. Now, I read that they are giving somebody named Paul Reiser a new comedy pilot. Wow, it sure is impressive how that network keeps sticking its neck out when bringing in fresh, new talent.
