No, older and younger brother.


#1277

Huh, I wonder where I got the idea that they were then.


#1278

It’s ALUMNUS. Geez, I expect it of Hollywood Reporter, which is consistently illiterate, but Variety too? How can anybody be so lazy that they can’t be bothered to type three letters to finish the word?


#1279

2nd definition. :wink:


#1280

The first definition kind of describes them better.


#1281

US

In that case, I extend my anger and contempt to everybody in America :stuck_out_tongue:


#1282

Which we will dutifully ignore. :wink:


#1283

Pffff, the Hol Rep is always using abbrevs.


#1284

Actually, people in the business call it THR. Confused the hell out of me a couple times. :wink:


#1285

Oh my god, my job love acronyms. Half the time they go unexplained too because everyone just assumes everyone else knows what they mean. It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize out what a FBA Delivery meant (For Broadcast Air)


#1286

I have seen that, but it’s not an abbrev so the jk wouldn’t wrk.


#1287

#1288

He looks good.
But I always imagined him looking like Redd Fox.

Anyway…Starz needs to make an Anansi Boys miniseries with Orlando Jones then.
It was so much better than American Gods.


#1289

If AG is a hit, they have a spinoff ready and waiting.

So we should all… pray…? I guess…?


#1290

I get very antsy about American Gods, from multiple seasons to casting Jesus.

But man, Anansi Boys is this perfect microcosm of family, adventure, and all around tricky business.


#1291

The BBC announced an Anansi Boys adaptation years ago, but I’ve no idea if it’s still in the pipeline.


#1292

That would make more sense haha.

I wonder if it’ll get sent to hulu like Good Omens ended up.


#1293

#1294

It was done for World Service radio but the proposed TV version hasn’t made any headlines (that I can find) since 2014.

So I’d be interested to find out if it was cancelled and, if it was, did the rights revert to Gaiman?
