A League of Their Own Series Adds D'Arcy Carden

The prospect of Amazon turning the beloved 1992 sports dramedy A League of Their Own into a half-hour comedy series was already an enticing one, largely thanks to the involvement of Broad City co-creator, co-writer, co-executive producer, and co-star Abbi Jacobson taking a starring role in the series, not to mention co-writing and executive producing again. Now we’re even more excited because The Good Place co-star D’Arcy Carden, who plays the virtual assistant Janet on the afterlife comedy series, will be joining the A League of Their Own series.

Unable to find the perfect actor for a role in their Vietnam War drama, they decided to use cutting edge technology to resurrect one of Hollywood’s greatest legends, James Dean.

finding jack

Today in terrible ideas: James Dean will return from the grave to star in the new movie Finding Jack. Dean, who died in 1955, will be brought back to life via CGI in the Vietnam War action-drama. Directors Anton Ernst and Tati Golykh say they have the approval of Dean’s family to perform this digital necromancy, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. To paraphrase Dr. Ian Malcolm, the filmmakers were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.
