THE BEST THAT [RUSSELL BRAND AND HELEN MIRREN] CAN DO: In today's Times, Mark Harris checks in on filming of the Arthur remake and finds out just how they're planning on updating the Dudley Moore-Liza Minnelli-John Gielgud comic smash for an era in which neither alcoholism nor ostentatious displays of wealth are as in favor as in 1981.

P.S. I'm testing out some new "share this" buttons in the blog template. Let me know if they work for you, and do please use them.

P.P.S. Reminder -- Emmys. Tonight. Live. Here.

    Shares AOK for me on Twitter and Facebook.  And this is a really bad idea for an unnecessary remake, even with getting almost anyone besides Minneli.

  2. 1.  In re Emmys, Billy Bush needs a serious beating.  Contrast with Jane Lynch, who is awesome.

    2.  I will probably see Arthur, if just because they filmed for the better part of a week right outside my office building (including, apparently, the opening Greta Gerwig scene).

    I shared a link via FB, and what appeared was the first comment; just me, or has it happened to others?
