MTV animation Beavis And Butthead is set to be the latest TV series to make it to the big screen. The show was broadcast on the network in the 1990s, and creator Mike Judge concedes he's now ready for a live-action revival.
He says, "For some reason, I used to hate the idea for years. Now, I think maybe there's something there." Judge adds at one point in the 1990s Johnny Depp wanted to play Beavis.
However, Sean William Scott and Jon Heder are rumored to be lined up to star as the MTV-loving pals in the new creation. I admit that they look enough like the Dumb Duo, but aren't Beavis & Butthead supposed to be 14?
As much as I love Mike Judge (his Office Space is one of the films I have to take with me if I ever get stranded on a desert island), I have a hard time imaging this new movie. All I can imagine is a Jackass film with a plot. The fact that Mike made a cameo appearance in Jackass Number Two, leaves me with even more trepidation.
