Today's TWoP News: July 7, 2009

Today's TWoP News: July 7, 2009

Today's news left me in an imaginative frenzy -- so many opportunities for fantasy casting, and I even considered changing my voter registration! Read on to see if you're equally as inspired.

Looks like Danielle Staub might have some competition! (As if she had any chance to begin with...) Alec Baldwin told Playboy that he's considering running for Congress in his home state of New York, or maybe even in Ohio, Connecticut or New Jersey. Alec, I would switch back from my current swing-state voter registration for you. Just sayin'.

Right before the show's final season, writer Brian K. Vaughan decided to get lost. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.) Lost Co-creator Damon Lindelof said that Vaughan has "left for greener pastures," which makes it sound like he died, but he didn't, so don't go tweeting any rumors.

And now for some small screen to big screen news. The '80s series T.J. Hooker will be adapted to film by producers David Foster, Ryan Heppe and series creator Rick Husky. Casting hasn't started, but a William Shatner cameo seems just so obvious. Baywatch will also be rewritten into a film, but this time around it'll be a comedy. Wait, those slo-mo scenes weren't supposed to be funny?

Voice-over vet Brad Garrett is developing a racy cartoon comedy in which he will also voice one of the lead characters. Dumb Bunny and Jackass will follow the two Bill Kopp characters after their fall from stardom.

Speaking of falling from stardom, Paula Abdul says American Idol has invited her to stay as a judge for the duration of the show following the recent expiration of her contract. Negotiations have yet to take place, though, so there's still time for some other past pop princess to replace her. I vote for one of the Wilson Phillips girls! Or all three!

HBO is developing a show based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. I'm pretty nervous about them defacing the name of one of my favorite books, but I'll be on board as long as they cast Brooke Hogan as the hermaphrodite.

I'm not particularly a fan of either one of them, but someone might be excited to know that Kathy Griffin will be hosting Comedy Central's roast of Joan Rivers.
