The battle to be JR Ewing

Two TV icons of the 1980s are to be revived on the big screen, and we're already gibbering like fools with excitement. Gibber!
» First up is a movie version of The Fall Guy, which was one of little lowculture's favourite Friday night treats when it was first shown. For those who have never had the pleasure, it was a daft action show about a bounty hunter called Colt Seavers (Lee Majors), a stuntman who, like everyone else on TV in the 80s, went around fighting bad guys and having adventures. George Clooney will be the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine, with Jason Statham as his sex-object sidekick Howie.
» Even more excitingly, Hollywood's A-list men are battling it out to play JR in the forthcoming Dallas movie. John Travolta is the hot favourite, but Bruce Willis has now thrown his 10-gallon hat into the ring.
According to our* spies: "He is pulling out all the stops to get it.
"JR is one of TV's most famous baddies and it's a role Hollywood actors would love to get their teeth into."
Whoever gets the gig, we will not rest until our campaign to see Amanda Holden cast as Sue Ellen is successful. Unless you have any better suggestions, of course.
*NB: Spies not acually ours.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
