First Edition of "What Did Judd Apatow Do Today?"


NEW COLUMN! In an effort to keep tabs on what Hollywood power-player of the moment Judd Apatow is directing, producing, writing, endorsing, or wet-dreaming about from one minute to the next – the first, very juicy and exclusive-heavy edition of “What Did Judd Apatow Do Today?” It’s like Deadline Hollywood Daily, for Judd Apatow.

Breaking: talking to MTV about sequels he’d consider, the chosen one stated, “The movie that probably has a best shot at a sequel is ‘Anchorman.’ Ron Burgundy would be hilarious at 70-years-old, being the anchor…We all think it would be fun to see him up on his feet again doing what only he can do. That would be awesome – but it could only happen in 30 years.”

Judd Apatow will not be doing a sequel for Anchorman, today.

Though in related news, Apatow progeny Jason Segel (who masterfully faded into the background in both Freaks and Geeks and Knocked Up) will be handed the keys to the late Jim Henson’s Muppets franchise on account of Disney’s “just for goofs” reasoning, and plans to employ much of Judd Apatow’s roster – including Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, and Paul Rudd. Membership has its privileges.
