The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

9 January 2006


For at least twenty years, there have been rumors of a live-action film version of the Sixties animated TV series The Jetsons, and now it appears they might actually pull it off. So far, we know they've gotten the family cast:

  • Steve Martin:  George Jetson
  • Jonathan Lipnicki:  His boy Elroy
  • Lindsay Lohan:  Daughter Judy
  • Diane Lane:  Jane, his wife

So: Jason Alexander or Danny DeVito as Mr. Spacely?

Something about this project disturbs me greatly (memories of Rosie and the originals, no doubt). On the other hand, I'd love to see how they make George's car fold up into a briefcase.

No word on who will play Astro? Andy Serkis, maybe?

I've gotta say, that is a mighty sexy choice to play Jane Jetson.

Somewhere in the flotsam and jetsam of our family's attics (mine or my folks') is a picture of me on the first day of first grade at Golden Oaks Elementary: slacks (momma didn't allow no bluejeans), checked button collar shirt, Mickey Mouse watch, and Jetson's lunch box. Milk aways seemed to taste better out of that Thermos.

It was fresher: it was milk from The Future, after all.

(Wasn't it?)
