Drop Dead Fred

In 2011 a remake of Drop Dead Fred is due to be released. Hold back the tears, people, there's more. Some bright-spark decided that the leading role should be played by...Russell Brand. Now, I don't know about you, but that sounds shite (excuse my french). If they release this, Brand will get the credit for the role and he'll be remembered for it, not Rik! O.M. Bleedin G!

Cat84: *sorry my computer is stuffed* This is probably the worst news I have ever heard. Even worse than when I heard that Bon Jovi were doing a massive world tour. Big sigh. Thanks Universal, you munts.

Sorry you heard it here first : ( I couldn't believe it when I read abut this. I could have kicked my computer screen in I was so pissed off! I know it's only a film, but I'm a huge fan and it sucks when they get the WRONG people and the WRONG ideas about re-making films. Where's common sense when you need him?!

Cat84: add a comment

You don't even WANT to know who Brand is. He's a nob. Anywho, I'm glad you agree with me! I hope the film flops and people's interests are peaked to see what the original was like. Then they'd see how much better Rik (the) is than Brand. Urgh...a Fred who's sarcastic and miserable looking? I'll tell them where they can stick that...
