If Anyone Gives a Crap About the 'Odd Couple' Remake, It Sure Isn't the People Making It

By Vivian Kane | Trade News | July 18, 2014 | Comments ()


Some official character photos from the upcoming CBS Odd Couple remake have been released and they are… well, they’re probably exactly the level of boring you would expect a CBS Odd Couple remake to be.

Hey look! Boring versions of great characters! We’ve got our Oscar, with a trim beard and very clean shirts, with our… okay, Tom Lennon is actually the perfect Felix. I’ll stay quiet… for now.

This is what Matthew Perry phoning it in looks like.

Even Tom Lennon looks super underwhelmed with his own performance.
And what the hell kind of self-respecting Felix Unger lets his GROSS DIRTY DISH GLOVES TOUCH HIS SHIRT? Is no one paying attention??

I like Lindsay Sloane, but what do we think the odds are that the entire character description just said “Zooey Deschanel”?

Poor Wendell Pierce looks like someone called him over to help test the light. Does he even have a character?

You have to hand it to CBS. They’ve really got the bland sitcom formula down. Start with a banal premise (or safe source material), take a couple talented (or not) actors to play ironed-out versions of characters they’ve been playing for years, offer them enough money that they HAVE to say yes, even though they all know that if the show gets picked up for more than half a season, they’re going to have to turn to intern bowling to let out aggression. Then throw a healthy dose of laugh track on it for good measure. And let that sh*t run for eight years.

    Oh God, they're going to make so much money and run forever.

  • Three_nineteen

    That is a whole lot of extrapolation based on six pictures.

  • nobcarajo100

    Dear god, let Lemmon and Matthau rest in peace. What a disgusting mess, I hope it gets cancelled before airing.

  • googergieger

    Dang this "sitcom" is so effin generic looking, every single bot of all time decided to post here.

  • Ricky, Bubbles & Julian

    Holy crap what the hell? Bunk is a kick ass badass and he is in this??? Matty perry trying like hell to look like Edward Norton, but failing miserably. Lt. Dangle deserves far better than this. Does he share an agent with john malkovich??? I truly can't imagine a single person on earth tuning in to this trash. Hey CBS, try an original idea, they do exist you know??? Try to hire a writer who can form an original thought. This dreck will make The Following actually seem watchable, which I thought was impossible

    Start working at home with<- Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    Every few years, I rewatch the first four seasons of the West Wing. I just finished up this round, and I was reminded how damn good Matthew Perry is. I mean, he's obviously great as Chandler and Chandler-lite, but he has so much more to give. I just don't think this is the venue for his greatness. I hope I'm proven wrong.

    Hee hee. That is the best.

  • Dulce et Banana

    OK, we've trapped three bots. Now seal the article and they're trapped her... FOREVER!

  • Vivianne ValdeMar

    Why would anyone even???

  • Kate

    Perry's writing and producing, so I'm pretty sure he cares.

    I wish this wasn't a laugh track sitcom, but other than that I'm quite interested. Perry, Lennon and Wendell Pierce? I'm there.

  • JenVegas

    I was thinking the same thing. I would like to watch these actors on my teevee but man, the laugh track is going to kill this show. Boo.

  • googergieger

    That is the worst thing I've seen all day. And an old deaf gypsy lady flashed her tits at work today. One thousand percent being honest here too.

  • Dulce et Banana

    Mona? How she's doing?

  • googergieger

    And now for my internet Tony Danza impression. Ahem.


  • Dulce et Banana

    I think it says something that you were just more interesting than this show could ever be.

  • DataAngel

    Can someone explain to actors and/or makeup folks that self-tanner/tinted lotion should blend into the hairline and neck?

  • Dulce et Banana

    And a very wise drag queen once whispered to me when another competitor walked by "amateurs always forget the neck"

  • e jerry powell

    Hey, I tried...

  • barcia

    I think they just ran out of makeup trying to cover that fivehead.

  • e jerry powell

    I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt on the "eight years," only because we're talking about CBS.

    The Bunk deserves better than supporting roles in failed sitcoms. Also, I like Tom Lennon and I'm sad that he had to let go of his amazing mustache for this show.

  • e jerry powell

    Yes, but he got much use out of it for Al Yankovic.

  • emmalita

    I like Tom Lennon too. Why can't he be in good things?
