TV Feels Impact of Osama Bin Laden's Death

Happy EndingsWe previously reported 'NCIS' will incorporate Osama bin Laden's death, but the al-Quaeda leader's demise has had other affects on TV.

According to Deadline, 'Happy Endings' modified a joke about bin Laden. Like 'Chuck,' the series left the joke in, but muted the punchline. In the scene, Dave (Zachary Knighton) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) are trying to capture a mouse.

"It's been like, four days. I can't believe you haven't caught this mouse yet," Alex said.

"I know, he's like my bin Laden. Jessica bin Laden, this super hot Arab girl I went to college with," Dave said. Then viewers heard a pause. The original line, "The one that got away," was removed.

While making 'Brooklyn's Finest,' the actor said that two guys were murdered across the street from where he was filming. "The cops told us if we went in there, we were on our own," he said, and that certainly proved to be true.

How's this for an unbelievable live theatre mishap? Ethan Hawke recalled a moment onstage when a fellow actor collapsed from a heart attack and died before being brought back to life by the prop master. Hawke told the harrowing story on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) today.

"He had a heart attack onstage and died for about 7 minutes ... I knew that something terrible had happened, but the audience thought that the play was going on," Hawke said. "The guy who did the props on the play came out and gave him CPR."

Moby-Dick harpoons Ethan Hawke, and William Hurt as Ahab

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 11th 2009 8:01PM
William HurtI'll be honest, I don't remember hearing about this big budget mini-series of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick before. But If they do it authentically enough, they'll be guaranteed millions of DVD sales and rentals by high school and college kids who damned sure aren't going to read the book for English class.

It's being put together by Germany's RTL, Austria's ORF and Robert Halmi's RHI. That means it's an RTLORFRHI production, which makes me ROFLMAO. Unfortunately, viewers in the USA are SOL as it currently has no network deal here.

That could change with this big casting news. The $25 million Moby-Dick mini-series has brought William Hurt and Ethan Hawke aboard. They'll be playing the obsessed Captain Ahab and defiant first mate Starbuck, respectively. It looks like there'll be a lot of CGI and effects representing the whale, which is a shame because we could have had a lot of politically incorrect fun casting that role. Maybe SYTYCD's Mary Murphy could be the voice of the whale, which would explain Ahab's obsession to shut it up permanently.
