The Hardy Boys 2 Men

Here’s a weird one, Tom Cruise and Ben Stiller have been confirmed to play the Hardy Boys in an upcoming 20th Century Fox adaptation of the famous novels. The two will play grown-up versions of the teenage sleuths who have grown apart, but who, in a shocking twist, get brought back together to solve one last mystery.

Fox have said that the film will be in a light-hearted vein similar to Mr and Mrs Smith. And there we were hoping that the boys would be solving the case of the mysterious serial cannibal paedophile rapist.

The Hardy Men, as it’s been so originally titled, will be directed by average comedy director Shawn Levy and no writer is currently attached to the project.

We were going to write about the BAFTAs, but this is way more fun. Tom Cruise and Ben Stiller? What genius was behind that casting? They should have teamed Stiller with a safer bet like Vaughn or Wilson, or someone who is intentionally funny.

Cruise’s waning public image has ruined our respect for him, despite how journalistically objective we appear to be. Whether he has the natural comedic ability to keep up with Ben “Zoolander” Stiller is undoubtedly doubtful. Clearly, the two’s friendship has blinded Stiller to the fact that Cruise is couch-leapingly gimptacular.

What’s worse is the news that the two are discussing a role for Cruise in the upcoming Tropic Thunder, which has so much potential it would be a shame for some egotistical midget with delusions of hilarity to ruin it.

Pictures: Top Right: Ben Stiller, Bottom Left: Of course! I would never have thought of looking in the middle of the ocean for my “chums”

Quote of the Day

Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004)

Bill:Pai Mei taught you the five point palm-exploding heart technique?
The Bride:Of course he did.
Bill:Why didn't you tell me?
The Bride:I don't know... because I'm a bad person.
Bill:No. You're not a bad person. You're a terrific person. You're my favorite person, but every once in a while, you can be a real cunt.
