Eddie Murphy Will Star in a Remake of "Grumpy Old Men"

EDDIE MURPHY already remade "Dr. Doolittle" and "The Nutty Professor", and that worked out pretty well for him. So why not jump back on the remake train? Eddie is going to star in a new version of "Grumpy Old Men", the 1993 comedy starring JACK LEMMON, WALTER MATTHAU, and ANN-MARGRET. It's about two longtime frenemies who live next door to each other, and whose rivalry heats up again when a new woman moves into the neighborhood. There's no official word on any other casting, but SAMUEL L. JACKSON has been mentioned for Eddie's neighbor . . . and if that happens, I'd pay just about anything for a ticket to this movie.

JULIE CHEN announced her departure from "The Talk" yesterday. She didn't actually appear on the show . . . she gave a statement in a pre-taped video that played at the end.

A Longtime "Sesame Street" Writer Says Bert and Ernie Are Gay . . . But "Sesame Street" Is Still Denying It

The endless debate over Bert and Ernie's sexuality came up again yesterday, when a longtime writer for "Sesame Street" supposedly "confirmed" that Bert and Ernie are gay. His name is Mark Saltzman, and he wrote for the show for 15 years, from 1984 to 1998. He says he considered them a gay couple, and based them on his own gay relationship. He said, quote, "That's what I had in my life, a Bert and Ernie relationship. How could it not permeate? The things that would tick off [my boyfriend] Arnie would be the things that would tick off Bert." He's only saying that he PERCEIVED their relationship that way . . . like a lot of people have . . . not that he had any secret information from the show's producers. So really, he's saying that as a gay man, he identified with them. But once this story got out, "Sesame Street" denied it in their usual way: Saying Bert and Ernie are "best friends," who, quote, "don't have a sexual orientation." More details HERE
