Crash, the singularly awful film about race and implausibly stupid coincidences that inexplicably went on to win the Oscar in 2005 for Best Picture, is about to become a television show.
Resolved: I’mma vote for whichever presidential candidate keeps this booshee from happening.
Crash’s TV story will pick up where the original ensemble flick left off. But with the possible exception of Cheadle, none of Crash’s original stars is expected back. The film’s cast included Sandra Bullock, Brendan Fraser, Terence Howard, Ryan Phillippe, Thandie Newton, Ludacris and Matt Dillon, who earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his role as a racist cop.
Instead, the show is poised to introduce all new characters and engage in more than race and class issues in the hourlong segments.
