Today's Installment of the Game Show Sensation Sweeping the Nation: Will Robbo the LLamabutcher Laugh or Cry?

Winona Ryder has signed on to play Spock's Mom.

I'm predicting "cry."

Answer-Revealing Yips! from Robbo: Actually, put this one in the "laugh" column. I had a very, very mild thing about Winona back in the Beetlejuice/Heathers days, but you could smell a wiff of flaming train-wreck even back then so I never invested. Now, had it been Helena Bonham-Carter, that would have been a different story. I had a major crush on her as Lucy Honeychurch. It was pretty much nullified by the time we got to Marla Singer, but I twitced in agony over her performance as Ari. Doing Spock's Mom probably would have started the twitching all over again.

She must have shoplifted that contract.

Oh Suh-Weet Jaysus! This project is becoming more of a joke everyday.

Why not sign Johnny Depp as Sarek at this point?

gary, Johnny might actually do a decent job as Sarek. But Winona ... good gawd.

Robbo, here's a freshly laundered handkerchief ...
