Amazon Just Made All Our Dreams Come True: Jeff Goldblum and Danny DeVito Will Headline a New Comedy Series


It would seem as if the rest of the world is catching up to my silver-tinged gentlemen fetish *cough* …

We’ll have to set aside those glorious New Zealanders for the moment, because though it’s semi-related, this particular news-bite isn’t of Thor or Legend; this is about a new Amazon comedy series written by The Simpsons‘ Tim Long, and starring none other than that gorgeous hunk of fantastic actor, Jeff Goldblum and It’s Always Sunny’s Danny DeVito.

I know, I know!

The odd couple with issues will star as musicians and former members of a successful duo who (for reasons unknown) have to get back together.

Here’s the official synopsis to the as yet untitled comedy, via Deadline:

 … centers on an iconic music duo from the past, Matt Downey (Goldblum) & Arlo Finkleman (DeVito), who are forced to reunite despite their longstanding hatred for each other. As the talented but strong-willed pair attempt to reconcile, they turn to the people who somehow manage to love these two incandescent idiots — their wives, ex-wives, children, managers, friends and lovers — all of whom turn out to be as brilliant, infuriating and frustratingly lovable as Matt and Arlo themselves.

I’m not sure I even care who or what they’re playing; I just love the idea of this pairing for a series. With DeVito’s superior acerbic witplay, and Goldblum’s gift for expressive sarcasm, and the they-hate-each-other premise, I have no doubt we’ll be holding our sides. I simply cannot wait.
