Tim Robbins promises never to make sequels

In his 30+ years as an actor, Tim Robbins has never done a sequel for any of his movies. He told MTV News that he won’t be making sequels anytime soon either.

‘Ghostbusters 3’ might be coming

This is coming from the words of B-Murr himself.tjndc5-5b5j9vsqbut19ktu4ezi_original.jpg

Bill Murray over the weekend said he is expressing strong interest in doing a Ghostbusters 3, depending on the script.

This comes after a confirmed report earlier this month that director Harold Ramis has been hired by Columbia Pictures to work on a new Ghostbusters film, along with the co-executive producers of The Office!

With Murray shelling out tons of cash for a messy divorce, you can’t blame him for wanting to saddle up a Proton Pack to beat up some supernatural goons for the third time.

But hey, I’m excited. Considering the second Ghostbusters movie was a colossal train wreck, I’m sure Ramis and The Office guys can crank out a slam dunk movie.

Plus, I finally have an excuse to dance like a buffoon to the Ghostbusters theme song again. Oh wait, I never need an excuse for that.

Ed McMahon to rap in credit commercials

He’s putting the “yo” back in “hi-yo.”

That’s right, the folks who bring you the nauseating Freecreditreport.com commercials have snatched up Ed McMahon to rap in a string of upcoming commercials in October.tjndc5-5b3yn5dt1ahgptpw6m5_original.jpg

According  to the Associated Press,  McMahon will wear a tracksuit in the commercial and rap about his very public financial troubles. Oh, and he’s supposed to be chauffeured by a golf cart in the videos.

Fantastic. I’ll definitely post the commercial here on the Suburbarazzi blog once I find it.

EXCLUSIVE: Judge Judy weighs in on Jeanine Pirro’s new TV show

I was in Larchmont today covering a young women’s mentorship program sponsored by Judy Sheindlin, star of the court room show Judge Judy. She said she knows Jeanine Pirro, so I asked Sheindlin what she thought about Pirro’s own court show that debuted this week.tjndc5-5i3tpfwkob51jm8bzfc2_original.jpg

“I haven’t watched the show yet but I will get to see it,” Sheindlin said. “I’m sure she’s terrific.”

As a TV judge veteran, she also had some advice for Pirro, Westchester’s former firecracker district attorney.

“Just be yourself and have a good time,” she said. “Don’t let anyone run you — but you don’t have to tell that to Jeanine.”

Sheindlin lives in Greenwich and is no stranger to the Hudson Valley. Her son Adam Levy is Putnam County’s district attorney and her daughter Nicole Sheindlin lives in Larchmont and is the executive director of Her Honor, the mentorship program I was covering.

You can read my story about the mentorship program here.

‘SNL’ newbie Bobby Moynihan first topic of today’s Howard Stern show

The likeness of Eastchester native and new “Saturday Night Live” cast member Bobby Moynihan to comedian Artie Lange was the first topic of conversation on Howard Stern’s radio show Monday morning.

Lange serves as a sidekick to Stern, who launched his professional radio career in Briarcliff Manor.

Here’s how the show started while Rob Zombie and Stern’s “American Nightmare” theme music slowly faded in the background:

Howard Stern: I don’t even know where to begin.
Robin Quivers: Well, you could say ‘Good morning.’
HS: Uh, good morning. That’s a good place to begin. Every television show has like a Belushi type; now it’s the Artie type. ‘Saturday Night Live,’ look at the latest guy they got: Bobby Moynihan. Who’s he look like, Artie?
Artie Lange: (Laughs.) Does that look like me?
HS: You know, that— does that look like you?!
RQ: Oh, my God. Of course it does!
AL: No, well, uh—
HS: It’s like the Artie type—
AL: I told you— Artie type?! It’s the Belu—
HS: The Belushi type.
AL: John Belushi got guys like me a career. God bless that guy.

OK, so the entire Bobby Moynihan conversation lasted 35 seconds. But after only two “SNL” appearances, at least word is spreading fast and Stern’s assessment was rather benign.

As Bedford resident Chevy Chase will tell you, being an “SNL” alum on Stern’s cranky side can have serious pitfalls; only in recent years did Chase and Stern amicably settle a nasty public feud that raged for nearly two decades. Continue reading

Happy 25 years to Vanessa Williams

It’s hard to believe. 25 years ago today, Vanessa Williams won her Miss America crown, becoming the first African American to win the award. tjndc5-5dxobsxov4k92u2eld4_original.jpg

Who knew my lame almanac e-mails would be so handy. Egypt signed the Camp David Accords with Israel in 1978 on this date too, in case you were interested.

The Miss America crown would pave the way to a Williams’ decent singing career and now her very successful acting career. She’s one of the stars of Ugly Betty on ABC and continues to shine as another gem living in Westchester.

It’s a slow news day, don’t judge me.

Jeanine Pirro makes her TV show debut Monday

Westchester’s former firecracker district attorney Jeanine Pirro will begin her judge show on the CW network on Monday.tjndc5-5cb4b4nlbld19ccxdknd_original.jpg

Pirro enters a crowded pool of TV judge shows already out there, but if she’s as animated on television as she is in real life, I think she’ll do fine.

Let’s just hope her whacky ex-husband doesn’t ruin this one like he did with Jeanine’s political career, hehehe.
