6. Happened years ago.
While a genius of his own accord, he's not the most personable of fellows... A friend of mine who met him knew this firsthand.

Besides, everybody dies. It's only a matter of where and when.

8. Malkovich is playing a new character....
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 08:21 AM by Parrcrow
From a script that Addams was working on before he died. Sam Rockwell is slated to play Zaphod. He's the only cast member who's name I recognized.

7. Dunno about Malkovich, but WTF is DISNEY doing
molesting a perfectly good British series?

Every time the Americans product something British (anything beyond 1980, mind you), they seem to fail horribly. "Coupling", "Doctor Who", et cetera.

I mention post-1980 as "All in the Family" and "Three's Company", "Cosby" (CBS), came from originally British shows, their pilots being strikingly similar at times.
