Walter Mitty

I had the best news yesterday! At Christmas, a remake of a classic Danny Kaye movie is being released: Walter Mitty!!!!!!

What a down-tempo, little bit depressing trailer. Walter Mitty is such a great, great character for all of us who have millions of secret lives. I'm excited for the remake, I really am. But this is a comedy, right? Can Ben Stiller really live up to the comedic genius that is Danny Kaye??

What do you think? Whatever joke it was that he was telling, no one has skills like Danny Kaye anymore. Musical talent, rubber faced and slapstick. I wish there were a comedian in the world like him today.
