CSTB: Consider If You Will, What “A Movie About The YES Network” Might Possibly Entail

I’d tilt heavily toward Tom Woodruff Jr. myself…

Wait, those are my choices?  Is this the moment where for the first time in human history, we actually wish to see Frank Caliendo doing something besides running from an angry mob?

Smug, bloated, ferociously unfunny.  But enough about Vince Vaughn…

I think many were confused and thought the choice meant "A turd left by Vince Vaughn." That seems more appropriate.

This is the easiest movie in the world to cast.

The actors even have better eating habits than Michael Kay!

Nancy Newman can be played by Betty Rubble - she already has the wardrobe.

John Flaherty could be played by Keanu Reeves.

See, this is fun!

*EDIT*

How the hell can I not find a GIS of Nancy with a particularly thick necklace? She wears them every day!

Ted Knight as John Sterling--Andrea Martin as Suzyn Waldman

Lenny Clarke is a dead ringer for Michael Kay.

Meryl Streep. She loves doing awful accents.

I believe Tori Spelling's joke of a husband once played David Cone in a Paul Sorvino-headed movie about the life of Joe Torre.

Wait, there's two people you can get together where Tori Spelling isn't the joke?

Shorter than his actual full name

What in the bleep? He must have a jolly time fitting it into official tax documents.

Nothing funny about a humorless writer making humorless jokes about far more accomplished people.

I mean I'm not a fan of either guy (except for Vaughn in Swingers), but both have obviously pleased a large audience with their work.

I hope it's a snuff film.

I was going to write this off as being the son of hippies, but that kind of name is more often found on European royals. Weird.

In a movie about the YES Network, who would play Michael Kay?

Can the Ebola virus be trained to say "Who but W.B. Mason?"
