Arnold Schwarzenegger's publicist announced today that production of Terminator 5 would be indefinitely suspended. Instead, the ex-Governor is starring in a Broadway musical revival of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum as the Roman slave Pseudolus (originally played by Zero Mostel). In a casting coup, Phil Silvers' role of Hysterium is being recreated by Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Here's their showstopper together:
From Stephen Sondheim's lyrics:
Everybody ought to have a maid,
Someone who you hire when you're short of help
To offer you the sort of help
You never get from a spouse:
Fluttering up the stairway,
Shuttering up the windows,
Cluttering up the bedroom,
Buttering up the master,
Puttering all around the house!
By the way, I finally figured out how to turn on the five gray "Share Buttons" below. The first one ("M") is for email, the second ("B") for Blog This, the third ("t") for Twitter, the fourth ("f) for Facebook, and the fifth (whatever) for Google Buzz. I've tried the Twitter one and it works. These buttons should appear on all future and past posts, so if you want to tweet the old post about, say, Tim Pawlenty and the pimp's knife, be my guest.
