Moo-Knew: The Movie

Our glorious leader Emperor Pixy is asking:

When they make MuNu: The Movie, who will play you? And feel free to make nominations for the other Munus.

Rocket Ted has already suggested that your humble Llamas could be played by Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams. HAR har, hardee Har har. I like to think that we'd be better portrayed by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The truth of the matter is that most of our readers would probably suggest David Hyde Pierce and Alf.

We'll have to think on our potential castmates a bit.......

YIPS from Steve:

Puh-leeze. The LLamabutchers: Tony Randall and Kurt Russell.

Your LLamabutchers:

Yeah, yeah, I know, Randall is dead, but I think that the Felix Unger/Snake Plissken thing summarizes our joint endeavor quite well, thank you very much.

Nothing new on the baby front, so I'm at work today.


Robbo suggests privately Helen Hunt to play Kathy the Cake-Eater: while the ontological crisis for the space-time continuum is shall we say delicious, the true honor belongs to none other than our old pal Chai-Rista:

Sample dialogue......"Paaaaaaaul, why did you go get the pluuutoniuuuuum bomb....you know how I hate pluuuuutoniuuuuumm"

(By the way, while researching this post, I came across THIS site, which wins the Steve the LLamabutcher Award for most bizarrely obtuse website of the week.)

Other Ideas:

Gordon the Cranky Neo-Con (Of course he's cranky---can you imagine a perky Steve Buscemi? No? Of course not!)

Hey I get Tommy Lee Jones, only because Jim Varney is dead.

Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams?

No. That wouldn't do at all for you two.

More like the guys who played Lenny and Squiggy.

I was thinking Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott. They could portray the young Llamas (rowing, etc., in college) and with a little makeup, grey hair, the appropriate prison tattoos, scars, etc. (think DeNiro in Cape Fear -- I imagine Robert has the scales of justice on his back) they could play the older, world-weary-if-not-wiser-Llamas.

And although I'm not a MuNuvian, perhaps I could have a cameo, if Brian Dennehy is available.

I bet Conspiracy shocked the hell out of your students. Would love to have been a fly on the wall at that screening.

Steve McQueen, without a doubt.

The Llamas? Ziegfried and Roy. But not as butch. And no tigers.

Bill -- ouch! That sounds like something Jeff at Beautiful Atrocities would say. How about Starsky and Hutch? Or Lloyd and Harry (Dumb and Dumber).

I still think the Odd Couple fits best. Felix and Oscar...

Nope, Ziegfried and Roy. But without the magic or the outfits.
