  • Jillian

    recasting… say it isn’t so!

  • tim w.

    Talk about a slap in the face! How can they recast? Are they trying to save money w/ this? It’ll be jarring to the audience to say the least. What the frak indeed?

  • Ace

    Wow, what an insanely bad idea!

  • Josh C.

    that makes me more angry than i thought it would lol I can’t believe they are recasting the voices that made the show. What happened to everyone being on board?

    I’ll comment on that last one: They say you should eat when you’re not doing other activities (reading,watching tv, etc) because your mind isn’t focused on you body and things like whether or not your full.

    That’s my PSA for the day.

    Hello for the mature man that David Letterman is he really needs a new clothes designer. or someone to tell him to switch to thinner ties..or do his suit jacket up..

    His wide ties do not do him justice specially when his suit coat turns it on it’s side and he looks like a moron..

    Really seriously now please do something about his tie…
