Table Tennis Tales and Techniques
Los Angeles—In a casting coup, Paramount confirmed that Brad Pitt, star of “Thelma and Louise” and “True Romance,” will star in next year’s film adaptation of “Table Tennis Tales and Techniques.”
The book, published in 2009, is described on Barry Haywards’ Table Tennis Bibliography as “a compilation of various yarns, stories, tips and quotes from the pen of one of the top US coaches. An interesting read and some sound advice.”
Pitt will play the book’s author, top US table tennis coach Larry Hodges, and show the story of Hodges teaching a headstrong new table tennis phenom, played by Michael Cera. He convinces Cera’s character that he can successfully put together a table tennis club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.
FBI Forensics experts have released the following computer generated age progression photo of how Hughes might appear in 2011.
Wikileaks has released e-mails it has recently obtained between the New York Times and a very unlikely source: Howard Hughes. Wikileaks hasn’t reported where it got the e-mails between the Times and the dead former aviator/film producer/obsessive-compulsive recluse billionaire. The first e-mail of the three from Hughes is the longest, according to Wikileaks, and begins with asking about a book that was supposed to come out in the early 1970s by Clifford Irving about Hughes.
“It occurs to me as I’m sitting here with my boy Andy Kaufman over here that there was supposed to be a biography come out about 40 years or so ago,” part of the first e-mail read. “Clifford Erving (sic) was working on it. What the hell happened with that?”
The further e-mails purportedly from Hughes, who would be 105 years old today, do not answer the questions the Times asks about why Hughes would have wanted to fake his death in 1976, and what he’s been doing since then. Nor does “Hughes” answer the questions by the Times about the first e-mail’s reference to comedian Andy Kaufman, who died in 1984.
