Ganymede book cover

Although his breakout role of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE did have a Buddy Holly thing going, Jon Heder won't be playing the singing legend but will be hopping on board Caspian Pictures' ALIVE AND WELL, based on Bradley Denton's humorous sci-fi novel "Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede". The full title sounds funnier...

Written and directed by Robert Rugan from a treatment by Denton himself, the story follows an electronics salesman's quest to save the Earth from an Alien plot after Buddy Holly sent him a personal message through every TV sets on the planet. Sounds a bit like "Dude Where's My Hitchhiker's Guide".

No release date has been advanced yet, with filming set to happen during Heder's hiatus form his upcoming yet-untitled sitcom for Comedy Central. Anybody read the book?

I haven't heard him sing, but I think Bill Hader could pull it off nicely.

Sheeeeeeeeeit

I saw Jon Heder with his twin brother at Wild Rivers water park last Monday. We were right behind him in line for one of the rides. My friend shook his hand.

Jame Franco?

Call me crazy, but I think James Franco has a resemblance to Buddy Holly. I just googled up an image of Holly, and looking at a large version of it, I immediately saw Franco. Especially in the smile. Franco is a good enough actor.

This is the image in which I saw Franco:
