Did you miss me?

Yours truly was out of town this past weekend...and had to stay away from the commercial breaks before they got to me!

Jonah Hill is looking to update 21 Jump Street.
According to Variety, the Superbad star is in negotiations to develop an updated version of 21 Jump Street for Columbia Pictures.

The project will be produced by Neal Moritz along with Stephen J. Cannell, who co-created and executive produced the TV version of the property, which aired on FOX from 1987-91.

Johnny Depp was one of several Tiger Beat friendly stars whose careers were launched by the original 21 Jump Street, which focused on a group of cops who were young enough to work undercover at high schools and colleges.

The trade paper says that Hill would develop the screenplay, executive produce and potentially star in the modern-day 21 Jump Street.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain appeared on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Unlike his 2002 appearance, McCain did not sing Streisand. Here's a roundup:
"I ask you, what should we be looking for in our next president?" McCain said. "Certainly, someone who is very, very, very old."

The certain Republican presidential nominee appeared in a phony campaign ad in which he promised to put an end to runaway government spending, claiming he had never sought money for his home state, Arizona.

"Controlling government spending isn't just about Republicans or Democrats," he said. "It's about being able to look your children in the eye. Or in my case, my children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and great-great-great-grandchildren, the youngest of whom are nearing retirement."

"I have the courage, the wisdom, the experience and, most importantly, the oldness necessary," McCain said. "The oldness it takes to protect America, to honor her, love her and tell her about what cute things the cat did."
Appearing on The Daily Show, John McCain appears to have decided on a running mate.
The all-but-certain Republican nominee did reveal a few tidbits. His Secret Service code name, he thinks, "is 'jerk,'" and his choice for a vice presidential running mate is Dwight Schrute, a character on the NBC sitcom, "The Office," played by Rainn Wilson.
Rainn Wilson responded shortly thereafter.
