The Jane Ellen Experience Podcast Summary #72 Wed. 06.17.09

Your every wish is now fulfilled. You can email Jim now. And I encourage you to do so. jimherrin@thejaneellen.com. You can suggest a book for him to review. Or tell him where to put it. Whatever. You will be able to do so from a link on the site by the end of today. In theory anyway.

Let's talk sequels, shall we? The 5th Indiana Jones film does have Spielberg attached and Shia LeBeouf. Jim feels that what Spielberg should do, now that Harrison Ford is "of a certain age" he suggests that Indy be played by different actors like James Bond or Batman, and keep it in the same time as the original film. An interesting thought.

Jim then mocked fans of the 1984 film Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen. It's being remade with Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki. I am not hip enough to tell you who they are. For some reason I get Red Dawn mixed up with the 1991 film Toy Soldiers with Sean Astin and Wil Wheaton. I've probably only seen both of the films once and not in this century. Though Wil and I used to email. What happened Wil?

Sean Penn will not be playing Larry Fine in the Three Stooges film. He says it's to spend time with his family. And/or he has come to his senses. This led into a heated discussion regarding the Stooges vs. Marx Brothers, Abbott and Costello, and others. You will have to listen to make your own decision www.thejaneellen.com click on Hear Jane.

So, some chick calls off her wedding because she finds out her fiance is a porn star. Well, I don't know if he's a "star." He had told her he was a trainer. Having not seen his films I can't say if he was lying or not. Interesting conundrum.

If you're a good liar you might want to head to Butte for the lying contest. It's all part of the folk festival. However, they say professional liars such as lawyers and politicians cannot participate. I have a friend who is both a lawyer and a politician. Guess he can't play to win. www.nationalfolkfestival.com.

Jim and I also talked about six moms suing a sex predictor company over their boy children that they thought would be girls, Mariah Carey, Katie Holmes dancing career and Lindsay's diamond non-heist.
