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.
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.
Someone chased Seacrest with a knife! I'm not even joking!
