    I heard they're hiring an unknown actor for the part of the earthling. I think his name is Biggus Dickus. Some guy from Wome.

    That sounds cool.

    That doesn't. I'd much rather see a Trey Parker and/or Matt Stone cameo or Terry Gilliam-esque animation. They're huge Python nerds so you know they'd do it.

    I hear Eric Idle is still holding out for some reason. Just stop it. What are you doing that's more important than this?

    Robin Williams was great in the Adventures of Baron Munchausen - another Terry Gilliam film. His over the top style really worked.

    Yeah, Williams voicing the dog doesn't seem that big
    a problem to me. Some of voice work has been outstanding.

    I'm looking forward to this happening.

    Idle seems like the dick of the group. He has his very important song-writing career to keep up with, after all.

    Idle is a prick. He's been in a fight with the others over royalties from his stage versions of their movies, and he totally screwed Neil Innes over The Rutles.

    I wonder if any of them resent Gilliam having arguably the most critically acclaimed career and him being an American.

    Not to mention he also directed him in Fisher King.

    With or without Idle I'd very interested in seeing this.

    I have no problems with featuring Robin Williams, after all having Sean Connery in Time Bandits, and Robert DeNiro in Brazil seemed like unusual castings and look at how those two Gilliam Classics turned out. It's going to be odd to have the cast back together minus Graham Chapman.

    Hopefully, Gilliam will be directing also.

    Totally fine without Idle being in it, he's been really lame and hacky for a while.
    Plus if the Cleese and him thing is true, I'd rather Cleese be in it.

    I think Idle holding out is a good move. He could totally land bigger projects due to the huge wave of interest in him that resulted from his musical number in the closing ceremonies of the Olympics.

    Just always sort of assumed there wouldn't be any more python movies.

    Nice surprise.
