Claim: Disney Eyeing Guardian of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt for Indiana Jones in New Raiders Reboot

I like him, but as Indy...?

As Indy, my once and maybe future all-time favorite Action Hero...?

Eh, Indy's smart. Not a genius, but up there. I know Chris Pratt has mostly played dumb-guy roles, and I shouldn't typecast him, but... Okay I'll say, I don't think he can come across as smart enough to play Indy.

Meanwhile, they're casting him opposite Denzel Washington in a... Magnificent Seven remake. I assume Denzel will play the Yul Brenner role, because bald.

Meanwhile x2, yeah, they're serious about doing the all-girl Ghostbusters remake. Here's your cast:

Okay, Kristin Wiig, fine, I like her (though most don't).

Melissa McCarthy? Are we all still pretending we find her schtick as refreshing and wild as we pretended to find it in 2009? Are we not yet tired of her?

The other two are two lame cast members from the very awful current season of Saturday Night Live. I don't know their names. I just know I see clips of them sometimes.

These clips are so funny that I, get this, forget to laugh.


Well, Hollywood exists to teach us one lesson:

Life is horrible and the human imagination is worse.

Oh: Good Men Did Nothing, so they went ahead and did a new Fantastic Four reboot.
