Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to Reprise Their ‘Shaun of the Dead’ Characters in Phineas and Ferb Halloween Special
Somehow, The Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb continues to be a children’s cartoon that, like Adventure Time, is something that adults can get into.
For an upcoming Halloween special episode, they will be having Simon Pegg and Nick Frost play Shaun and Ed from the awesome zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead, which should be to the delight of all of us grown ups who aren’t going to a party or don’t have to take someone trick or treating.
Jim Gaffigan, Jerrod Carmichael, Rob Lowe/Rob Riggle, Nick Frost/Justin Long Pilots Still Alive
With the announcements of which pilots have been picked up for the next year well behind us, there is still hope for a handful of projects at other networks.
Jim Gaffigan’s pilot might have a chance a TV Land after going through a few rounds at CBS while Jerrod Carmichael is getting another shot at NBC. Also, Rob Lowe and Rob Riggle’s tennis comedy pilot The Pro and legal comedy Sober Companion starring Nick Frost and Justin Long are still being considered at Fox.
We’re glad to hear that all these projects are still in play and will keep our fingers crossed as long as we can in hopes that they get picked up.
