It’s got all the ingredients there for comic greatness – let’s just hope it all comes together that way!
Actors Jeff Goldblum and Danny DeVito, both well-known for their comedic talents, are collaborating for a new Amazon TV series.
Given the physical difference between the two, there’s something of an old school, buddy comedy feel to the pairing. According to reports they’re to play ‘an unlikely musical duo in the vein of Simon & Garfunkel.’
The synopsis reads: ‘An iconic music duo from the past, Matt Downey (Goldblum) and Arlo Finkleman (DeVito), are forced to reunite despite their longstanding hatred for one another.
‘As the talented but strong-willed pair attempt to reconcile, they turn to the people who somehow manage to love these two incandescent idiots—their wives, ex-wives, children, managers, friends and lovers—all of whom turn out to be as brilliant, infuriating, and frustratingly lovable as Matt and Arlo themselves.’
No news on other cast members yet but The Simpsons writer Tim Long will be penning the half-hour comedy.
The new series will reportedly not affect DeVito’s role in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
