Two and a Half Men is somehow still managing to stay in the headlines, even post-Charlie Sheen.
We've heard all about the injuries on the set of Celebrity Circus, but we're shocked that this act didn't warrant a trip to the emergency room. While all of the other celebrities were busy twisting and tossing themselves around for acrobatic acts, Christopher Knight teamed up with a fire clown to entertain the crowd. I'm not sure it was entertaining, but it was I guess kind of interesting to see him put out flames with his mouth and put a stick of dynamite down his pants which then made his crotch explode (I am so not kidding). All the while he, and the other clown who seems to have actual talent for like juggling and firesticks and stuff, are ogling and fighting over a bikini clad girl. Classy. Real classy.
Poor Joey Fatone (who I still call Fat-One... can't help it. Old habits die hard). Seriously, his career hasn't sunk quite as far as another Dancing With the Stars alum, Joey Lawrence (who is hosting the hideously awful Master of Dance), but the ex-N'Syncer is getting pretty damned close by acting as the ringmaster on Celebrity Circus. The highlight of the entire first episode was him being hung up by one foot and dangled from the Spanish web without a net. The "celebrities" in question are well, questionable. When your biggest stars are Wee-Man and Antonio Sabato Jr., you should probably be worried about the future of the series.
My Fair Brady's Christopher Knight has signed on to host Trivial Pursuit: America Plays, a TV version of the board game Trivial Pursuit. But there's a twist. Instead of being all boring and reading the questions off of cards like us sad sacks at home do it, the TV treatment will have viewer-submitted videos of random people asking trivia questions, with the contestants answering them in an attempt to win a colorful piece of plastic pie. At least I hope they leave the plastic pie pieces in. I'm also serious about the sports category -- I never play it. It's always about golf and I'd just rather it didn't exist.
Here at TwoP.com, we like to keep up on the latest casting news, so we can squeal with glee whenever we see the name of somebody we recognize. Well, I squealed with glee three times this morning, and it's not even lunch yet. Here's a few interesting tidbits, involving Pee-Wee Herman, the Devil and Peter Brady... and no, they're not the same story.
