Curious observations...

Does anyone else get creeped out by the upcoming "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" from the coming attraction trailer?

Johnny Depp plays some kind of Michael Jackson/Pee Wee Herman-type character---light bleached skin and hangs around kids....


Also...this remake of the "Bad News Bears"---doesn't it strike you that Billy Bob Thornton is just playing the same character he did in "Bad Santa" but now coaching a kids team?

Of course it's a little creepy, it's Tim Burton.

I heard an interview with Richard Zanuck, who produced Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, on NPR. Someone called in with the exact same Michael Jackson story. His response largely was the MJ really likes children, and WW doesn't like them at all...

It is an interesting interview all around though... check it out:
