Pee-wee Herman (né Paul Reubens) has had more aborted comebacks than
Mickey Rourke (remember Mystery Men?), but things finally seem to be going
his way following news that the character will headline a
new Judd Apatow
movie and star in his very own Broadway
show. Pee-wee has even
scored that most precious piece of cultural currency: a Huffington Post blog
about Dancing With the Stars. It turns out the Schwinn-riding '80s icon
is a fan. A new fan, but a fan nonetheless. Enthuses Herman:
there anything these people don't bedazzle EVERYTHING. I LOVED it all. The
Fantastic Mr. Fox, the Quarterback
with the 71 children, the hot lady from The Hills, the kid from
Cory in the House, my dear friend, the Hoff, and Mrs. Brady. LOVE. LOVE.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Did I mention I LOVE Dancing With the Stars? I never
heard of it until yesterday. Now my life seems different.
