Crash: The Series May Be Worse Than Crash: The Movie

<i>Crash</i>: The Series May Be Worse Than <i>Crash</i>: The Movie I've been pretty harsh on Starz's TV adaptation of Crash in the past, and now, after having seen the trailer for it, I think it may actually be worse than I thought. Even with the casting coup of Dennis Hopper (who seems to have been cast based on his unrivaled ability to portray Dennis Hopper), this show looks even crappier than the movie it's based on. Watch the trailer after the jump, if only to revel in truly terrible -- not to mention completely unnecessary -- television.

Starz Crashes and Burns

Starz <I>Crash</I>es and Burns

Starz is adapting the 2004 Academy Award Winning movie Crash for the small screen, and while this project was announced a while back, the cast was finally announced today. And, well, it lacks a little star power. According to The Hollywood Reporter, some people named Luis Chavez, Arlene Tur, Ross McCall, Brian Tee and Jocko Sims will head up the cast.

Now, I've spent upwards of 2-3 minutes on the Starz official site today, and while that may not be an exhaustive investigation, I saw no evidence of any other series on their roster. This made me wonder several things, in the following order:

Modern Family: Make It Stop

<i>Modern Family</i>: Make It Stop

We're big fans of Jason Mantzoukas here at TWoP, in no small part because of his character Rafi on The League, Dennis Feinstein on Parks and Recreation and his musings on the How Did This Get Made? podcast. When we first learned he'd be playing Haley Dunphy's boyfriend in "Party Crasher," it was the most we've looked forward to an episode of Modern Family in a long time. It should come as no surprise, then, that after watching this mess, we're a bit more disappointed than usual.

My Hopper the Hero

My Hopper the Hero So a little while ago I ripped on Starz's television adaptation of Crash for being a stupid idea with a no-name cast. While I still think turning that movie into a TV show is a stupid idea that I'm dreading having to watch, it appears that Dennis Hopper has swooped in at the last minute to save the series. The film icon is set to star in the series as Ben, an aging record producer looking for his next big hit. Am I insane, or does that sound like a character Hopper has played a million times before but still awesome, all at the same time? I'm sure he'll be snorting a lot of coke, drinking a lot of whiskey, wearing a leather jacket in every scene and, hopefully, kicking a lot of ass.
