Brad Pitt may have finally found a use for that dead possum he’s been allowing to take up space on his face. He’s considering directing and starring in an Eric Roth adaptation of The Hatfields and McCoys. No word yet on what side he'd be on in the legendary feud..

Party Favors: Deadly Impact

  • Quick Stop
Albuquerque – This sleepy town is getting rocked awake by a mad bomber in Deadly Impact. Thomas Armstrong (Boondock Saints’s Sean Patrick Flanery) is a cop that is forced to shoot his wife in order to save 10 people that are being held hostage by The Lion (The Matrix’s Joe Pantoliano). The ugliness of the moment cause Armstrong to quit the force and devote himself to booze. Eight years later The Lion reappears. The FBI wants Armstrong’s help in identifying him, but can he tangle with the diabolical madman who has promised to blow up the city?

Lucy began back in 1951 and ran until 1957, producing 180 half-hour episodes for CBS. Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley continued in 13 hour-long episodes of The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show that were released sporadically over three years. Likely due to the fact that Ball and Arnaz divorced in 1960, the cast never reunited for any kind of reunion or new adventures.

It may surprise you to know that, in the early day's of I Love Lucy's popularity, the cast and crew produced a theatrical version of the series. The I Love Lucy movie consisted of three first season episodes ("The Benefit,
