Lunch Break Links: Feb. 23, 2007
Friday again. Great episode of The Office last night, and a legitimately tingly OC finale. Plus a medicore movie and a sugar explosion at Little Brother's. More on all of that this afternoon; for now, click on links.
So much juice here! Taste a sample platter: Robert DeNiro is developing a third Fockers movie. (Blech. That second one was unbearable.) George Clooney and Cate Blanchett might be lending their voices to Wes Anderson's upcoming animated movie. (Delicious!) Warner is considering a Justice League movie. (We'll have to wait for the aftertaste to pass judgment on this one.)
Corey Dillon wants off the Patriots. He ain't what he used to be, but I'll take him in a Browns uniform right away.

Mel Brooks is getting his wish from the Season 4 finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Producers is closing on Broadway.

Finally, I'm just getting into the music of Richard Thompson, so I enjoyed this interview.
I'll be back later with lots of content, so sit tight.
