Pam 2, Chimp 0

Pamela Anderson refused to appear in an episode of her new TV series, Stacked (they wanted to call it Hooters, but apparently that name was already in use), because the PETA-affiliated star didn't want to play opposite a live chimpanzee.

At least, that's how Polythene Pam is spinning the story.

Maybe the chimp told his agent, "Pamela Anderson? Are you kidding me? I'm a professional actor, man. I'm not going to ruin my industry cred by sharing the screen with that bimbo."

Order was restored when the producers of Stacked (and wouldn't you just love to have that credit on your curriculum vitae?) retooled the script, replacing the chimp with a robot.

Too bad they couldn't do the same with Pamela Anderson. Then again, who could tell?

And another thing: Is Christopher Lloyd, a near-legendary comedic actor, so desperate for employment that he'd agree to costar in a Pamela Anderson sitcom? How far you've fallen, Reverend Jim.

My favorite Ignatowski zinger:

Jim: I was arrested once, back in the '60s.
Tony: Did they get you on drugs, Jim?
Jim: Naw, I was already on drugs.

You crack me up... thanks for being right on target and funny all at once!

Lloyd had a show that was scheduled and promoted heavily a years ago, but was canceled just days before airing, even after they had already filmed a few episodes. Makes you wonder, huh?

I will admit one thing. Stacked is the perfect tongue in cheek name for that sitcom. Of course I cant really say anything about the quality of the sitcom itself, but that doesn't somehow stop me from being sad for Mr. LLoyd. Just call it a hunch.
