Jason Lee & Lennon

Jason is Number 1...

If memory serves the Beatles were at one point planning a film called Get Back which pretty much fell into oblivion. But fear not, Jason Lee is here. OK, be a little bit afraid...

The View Askew alum and former Earl Hickey will be stepping behind the camera for time travel Comedy GET BACK, from rookie screenwriter Chris McCoy. The story sees a pair of Beatle-maniacs travelling back to 1966 where one of them gets caught in a love triangle with John Lennon and Yoko Ono. I'm not kidding, that's the plot as described by The Hollywood Reporter. To be fair they do go back to the 60s - given enough acid, Yoko could be mistaken for Maggie Q, I guess.

The report also puts Lee back on TV as the lead in a TNT pilot called "Delta Blues", to be exec produced by George Clooney. The show, if picked up, would have Lee play a Memphis cop/Elvis impersonator. And that's on top of appearing in the ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS sequel squeakquel. Dude, you need to call Kevin Smith and soon!

Extra Tidbit: I lost track of EARL after season 2. Anybody care to spoil how the show ended?
