Cedric a Honeymooner?

03.20.2003

Deciding to go in a decidely different route than most would've expected, Paramount Pictures has begun discussions with Cedric the Entertainer and Mike Epps to star in THE HONEYMOONERS as Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton. While I certainly have no problem with casting Cedric in the role Jackie Gleason made famous - in fact I think it's an inspired bit of casting - I can't imagine Mike Epps, the embarassingly unfunny star of NEXT FRIDAY and ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS as Norton. Just doesn't seem right to me at all. But Paramount has made up their minds and a deal is expected to be closed soon. After which the project will go out to directors and Cedric will schedule around his Fox TV show, "Cedric the Entertainer Presents." Epps meanwhile has nothing to schedule around except cancelling a phone call to Ice Cube, pleading with him to make THE FRIDAY AFTER NEXT FRIDAY'S FRIDAY.
