Eat Away My Good Man


Val Kilmer has found some more acting work which will not involve him actually having to get in front of the cameras. This is good news for all of the restaurants in LA who would go out of business if Val had to drop any weight. Instead, he can now continue to become this generation's Marlon Brando. Val Kilmer is stepping in for Will Arnett as the voice of KITT in the new Knight Rider film. Will Arnett had to drop out because GM was none to pleased that the voice over person they have been using for ten years was going to be coming out of a Ford Mustang in a feature film.

Will agreed that perhaps he wasn't quite ready to give up the new Chevy Aveo they give him every year and so the gig went instead to Kilmer. Val who has unsurprisingly been doing a great deal of voice over work as his weight reaches epic proportions was happy to get the role. He of course had no comment because he is still a surly bastard despite his happy go lucky Santa features.

Oh, and in case you didn't see it in the news this week, Jason Bateman confirmed that an Arrested Development film is in the pipeline. Just as long as it has Liza naked I'm there. Anyoung.

Whoa, looks like the Canadians are working on a Auto Industry Voice Over monopoly. Which reminds me again, who is the marketing genius that continues to greenlight Kiefer Sutherland, who has been to jail for DUI/DWI, as the voice of Ford. Anyone?

Anyone ever see Val in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with Robert Downey Jr....its hysterical with the writing - i actually liked it

jax said...

i loved Kiss Kiss- great movie.

canadachick said...

i had never heard of it...just rented it on a whim - now i tell everyone to see it LOL - lots of time to watch movies with the writers strike

Trix said...

Oh wow, an Arrested Development movie....hmmmm...

At this point I also fully support a Scrubs movie, to wrap up the series since the writers strike pretty much ruined it.

I &heart; Will Arnett.

That was supposed to make a little heart, but I guess I forgot how to do that. Anyway, I find Will Arnett strangely attractive. That's all.

Will Arnett has one of the sexiest voices ever.

"Fried cheese with club sauce,
Popcorn shrimp with club sauce,
Chicken fingers with spicy cluuuub sauce"

I can't even watch Top Gun anymore -- Tommy is crazy and Val is puffy. To think how I loved them back then.....

Twisted Sister said...

The Val movie I can't watch is the one where he's blind. Man, that breathing of his sounds like a sick St. Bernard.

Oh this pic makes me so sad. Val Kilmer was sooooo sexy! I sat next to him at a restaurant on Sunset a couple years ago, and he had a full beard. He didn't look *great* but oh--this is so much worse.

Love, love, lurve Will Arnett and can't wait for the AD film to come out. Best show evah.

HOLY FUCK!!!

For a minute I thought Enty had posted a picture of my ex-husband!! Seriously...Val Kilmer now looks like my bloated, drunken smelly ex husband.

I just want to shower now.

I LOVED "Real Genius"...one of the funniest 80's nerd films ever. And "The Saint" is worth watching, eventhough you have to force yourself to watch Elizabeth Shue swoon and fan herself.

Now, all I see is my ex.

Thanks again, Enty!! I think I need more Dominic Purcell....y'know, to get over the trauma.

Beefcakey ones.

GammaGirl said...

The only reason I was going to watch Night Rider was for Will Arnett, so I probably won't be tuning in.

YAY!! for an Arrested Development Movie!

majik, real genius is one of my all-time favorite movies, too! of course knowing kids that really did that kind of stuff over at cal tech makes it even funnier!
