As we reported yesterday, Liverpool have parted ways with manager Kenny Dalglish. He leaves the club after showdown talks earlier in the week with Us owners John W Henry and Tom Werner at their stateside base in Boston

Dalglish ends his 16 month spell in charge at Anfield with a Carling Cup trophy and a runners up Fa Cup medal but an extremely disappointing league campaign saw the Reds finish eighth, behind bitter rivals Everton and way outside the Champions League places.

BBC news confirmed the story saying he had paid the price for Liverpool’s poor run in the league.

The 61-year-old Kop legend has now arrived back in Merseyside and has postponed an overseas holiday he was to take today but has yet to comment on the axing.

"Death Valley" and Sharing a Few Laughs: A Television Review ("Zombie Fights").

*here be some spoilers.

Director: Drew Daywalt.

Writer: Matthew Lawton.

The new "Death Valley" series from MTV is much like Shakespeare's shortest work, "The Comedy of Errors." Instead of mistaken identities there are mistaken motivations. One character, unknowingly, does not appreciate his partner enough, while Captain Dashell (Bryan Callen) is still struggling to understand his sexuality. This leads to all sorts of awkward dialogue from him: "I regulate my semen count. You want to know how?" or "Do you want me to come in for coffee?" Dashell is completely oblivious to the underlining meta message of homosexuality in his dialogue and John John (Texas Battle) does his best to keep an awkward distance. Other plots points in Epis. 5, "Zombie Fights" include more zombie madness, cage fights, a lost relative found, a cliffhanger ending and a Lloyd Kaufman zombie look-a-like to round out the evining.

Fox to Develop an Animated TV Show with Jonah Hill

  • MovieWeb
According to Variety, Fox is going to develop a pitch from Jonah Hill (Superbad) that will be produced by Peter Chernin.

Fox will also put together a script based on Peter Bagge's graphic novel series The Bradleys.

Hill is going to provide the voiceover on his show. He will also write it with Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul (Yes Man).

The show will follow "a 7-year-old socialite who acts and talks like an adult." Things get really interesting when he has to go to public school.

The Bradleys script will be written by Peter Bagge and Matthew Lawton (Crank Yankers).

The Bradleys focuses on a dysfunctional suburban family. It was originally published in the early 1980s.

"I was obsessed with Peter Bagge's comics when I was a teen," Lawton states. "I ran away to Seattle at the age of 16, and was definitely this grumpy, disaffected punk kid."
