The last of a dying breed.
I’ve been starting to get pretty anxious about my favourite show since 1994 closing down. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen about 70% of the shows he’s done in this 16 year run. I’ve been anxious that Conan will have to drastically change the show, and drop characters like Shoeverine and Coked-up Werewolf.
There’s also Leno being the Triplle H of late night. Leno’s 10pm show seems like it’s meant to devalue the Tonight Show and setting up Conan for faliure. If Will Smith is in town to promote a movie, will he go on Leno’s show in primetime first. If ratings are bad, they can just put Leno back at Tonight Show. It all just stinks of a heel move.
Good thing Conan is way too talented to fail.
When Quentin Tarantino makes a casting wishlist, he sets his sights high. “High” as in one of the biggest box office stars in the world. The writer/director is currently meeting about his upcoming spaghetti Western Django Unchained and people involved in the meetings have revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that the director’s top choice for the lead role of Django, a freed slave who is trained by a German bounty hunter to save his wife, is none other than Will Smith.
The Hollywood Reporter also says that Samuel L. Jackson is circling as role as isChristoph Waltz, who was confirmed by William Morris Endeavor but he himself denied involvement. Jackson’s role would be as the head slave of the bad guy, Monsieur Calvin Candie, who would face off with Django and Waltz is being eyed as the bounty hunter, the film’s second lead.
