My little elves hiding under the tables at Universal Studios have found this little easter egg for your delight! Kaley Cuoco has joined the delightfully charming Russell Brand and the underappreciated gem James Marsden in I, Hop. This news is better than an unending stack of pancakes smothered in glazed fruit and artificial gobs of whipped cream!
In case you haven’t been bouncing on your couch bursting with impatience because you DIDN’T EVEN KNOW, let me give you the goods on this gem. James Marsden — who’ll I’ll be seeing between wiping tears of giggles in the totally faboo remake of that grumpy British flick Death at a Funeral (whattasmatta Queen Elizabeth? You afraid of black people in England? Tee hee! I’m kidding!) plays a slacker who accidentally injures one of the Easter Bunny’s lil helpers (shh! don’t tell the kids, little pitchers have big ears!) and has to take him in and take care of him. Are you kidding me?! How hasn’t this movie been made 17 times before starring Robin Williams and John Travolta! In a fat suit and dress again, please!
Everyone who’s anyone is probably constantly suffering tummy rugburns from hysterical fits of laughter watching Darling Kaley’s wacky antics on that brilliant and much maligned sitcom sensation “The Big Bang Theory” (my number one choice for a basket stuffer/gift to be nailed above your door to ward off vengeful spirits for Easter/Passover). But I always harbored a crush on her since she played John Ritter’s daughter in “8 Things.” Anywhoooo! She’s bound to bring rays of blinding sunshine and puppies to the project playing James Marsden’s responsible sibling who bears the brunt of his shenanigans. Laughter, party of three!
Now, if you’re like me, you can’t get enough Russell Brand. He’s like a sexy brit badboy version of Jon Stewart! But this is even better! Because Russell’s going to be voice a totally realistic looking CGI-version of the Easter Bunny! CGI makes everything better! Who needs actors? Amiright, Hollywood, or amiright? So he’ll no doubt be bouncing around and leaving little chocolate poop surprises that people accidentally eat. How can we guarantee that? Because it’s being directed by the same wunderkind who brought you Alvin and the Chipmunks!
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it. If you need me, I’ll be the one dancing the dance of thanks with the giant gorilla over Universal Citywalk. Hubba hubba balloo!
